We bring the 20-year expertise from our partners together to create a unique opportunity for students and entrepreneurs to be fast-tracked into Silicon Valley, through fellowships held in and around the city of San Francisco.
It’s a deep-dive into the expertise of heads of Global tech corporations, professors of Stanford and Berkeley and founders of successful companies.
This is the experience that has already inspired hundreds of fellows and has changed the life to many who are ready to tell their story. With it, we strive to shape the next academic and entrepreneurial class.
What to Expect
Heads of world-leading companies delivering talks and sharing their expertise on-site.
Academics fast-tracking you into their area of expertise, sharing its most critical advances and drawbacks.
Visits to companies and Universities
Spending half a day in the life of Google employees, Amazon Engineers, Stanford academics, investors and founders.
Invaluable Networking Opportunities
Like several alumni, during this fellowship you could meet your cofounder, your future research supervisor or earn a referral.

Thanks to our partnership with the Silicon Valley Study Tour, this program has not only ignited inspiration but also successfully guided over 800 alumni to the heart of Silicon Valley over the past 20 years, spanning 50+ editions. Over the years, a consistent theme emerges: alumni return home with transformed mindsets and fresh ideas. Many have indeed subsequently launched new companies, embarked on academic pursuits, or secured positions in Silicon Valley.
Alongside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, these success stories and experiences have been collected in the book: “Tra Italia e Silicon Valley: I migranti tech dal 2000 al 2023”
