EUROCROWD’s Italian Strategic Group: Activities Report 2020-2021
EUROCROWD together with members of its Italian Strategic Group (ISG) is delighted to present its second activity report: the ISG – Activities Report 2020-2021. In the operational context of EUROCROWD's Strategic Groups, this document aims to summarise the main activities, carried out in the reference period from July 2020 to December 2021, of the Italian Strategic Group.
It is important to underline the inauguration of the first EUROCROWD-ISG course at the Cottino Social Impact Campus, thanks to the activation of an agreement scheme with the Consortium of companies The W Place. 166 people were trained, for a total of 63 certified professional figures and placed in the world of crowdfunding. The results emerged from the evaluation questionnaires issued at the end of the course are absolutely positive and encouraging: 97% of participants would recommend a friend or acquaintance to attend the EUROCROWD certification course for professional campaigns and platform managers.
In line with the expectations of the members and with the multi-year work program drawn up in 2018, the Italian Strategic Group continues to return promising results and a lively cross-section of the national market, both in terms of active operators and other actors (public and private bodies, press agencies, research centers) interested. The challenges launched by the pandemic have been many and have developed in various forms, placing significant obstacles to face-to-face interactions and the provision of training courses and support activities to institutions and companies.
Despite everything, the 2021 results and the 2022 outlook confirm the positive trend of the working group, which has renewed its commitment to operate in the national context through the election of the new Board of Directors and has set itself new and more ambitious goals for the years to come. The Italian Strategic Group has established itself as a good practice at European level, and expressing a clear desire for expansion. The Group has also confirmed its willingness to share experiences and collaborate on new projects, in the spirit of openness and transparency that distinguishes all EUROCROWD training and activities from the very first days of activity.
