Homepage / Foundation

The understanding of complex biosystems is a necessary step for the development of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic solutions. Innovation and technology transfer require therefore an interdisciplinary context and the combination of:

  • high quality scientific teams,
  • state-of-the art research facilities,
  • management and financial support,
  • proximity with Universities, medical schools, public and private Research Institutions leaders in biotechnological and medical research.

In order to leverage the relevant intellectual and financial resources present in Lombardy and Italy, Università degli Studi di Milano, Fondazione Cariplo and Banca Intesa Sanpaolo have joined to establish the Filarete Foundation with the mission of creating, hosting and nurturing high-tech entrepreneurial initiatives in the field of biopharmacology and biomedicine. The Chamber of Commerce of Milan has joined as Co-founding Member.

Fondazione Filarete manages a 6000 m2 Business Accelerator Infrastructure strategically located in the southern part of Milan. Specifically it:

  • hosts a mix of state-of the-art technological platforms and companies;
  • offers scientific, financial and management support services.

Through this combination the Filarete Foundation evaluates, assists and accelerates new entrepreneurial initiatives for the design, pharmacological characterization and delivery of innovative drugs.

In order to offer new companies a complete service, Fondazione Filaretehas adopted a dual operational profile:

  • it offers scientific, technological and logistic support through the Business Accelerator;
  • it provides financial advisory and business development services.
