IBSA Farmaceutici is a partner of Le Village by Crédit Agricole, the most important Italian innovation hub of international startups.

The world of start-ups is a constantly evolving universe, where ideas develop and “grow”, until they become tangible products. The process of designing and creating new solutions is crucial for a company like IBSA, which makes innovation one of its pillars and founds its philosophy on standing out by following paths not yet trodden by others.

For IBSA, Le Village by Crédit Agricole Milano – a prominent Italian innovation hub – is a privileged observatory on the world of innovation and new national and international companies.

Founded in 2014 by the Crédit Agricole Group, it is present today in several countries worldwide, with over 600 partner companies and more than 1,200 start-ups, about 50 of which in the Milan Village alone. The Hub puts international national start-ups in contact with the most important businesses; in fact, it has identified identified several thematic areas to be monitored: the 3 Italian excellences in Food, Fashion&Design, along with the 3 rapidly evolving sectors which are Fintech/Insurtech, Energy, Enviroment and Mobility. What was missing was the Pharmaceutical field (in Italian Farmaceutico: the 7th “F”), for which Le Village chose IBSA Farmaceutici as the excellence of the Lombardy representative of the industry.

“We are very proud of the partnership we established with Le Village and to represent with our know-how the pharmaceutical field, one of the excellence of the Made in Italy” said Andrea Giori, Head of Research & Development, IBSA Farmaceutici. “Making contact with the start-ups of the hub will let us implement significant synergies, thus fueling the innovation process that is distinctive of IBSA’s DNA”.

This partnership will indeed give IBSA Farmaceutici the opportunity to work with start-ups – verified and validated by Le Village – capable of providing answers customized to the specific needs of the company.

Le Village will also offer key opportunities for visibility and training: IBSA Farmaceutici will in fact be able to participate, as a speaker, in events co-designed with the CA Group, as well as to take advantage of training sessions held by certified coaches.
