Tech Women for Sustainable Business #2
Tuesday 18 May 2021
We continue our in-depth analysis of the growth path dedicated to female-led start-ups, created by UniCredit Start Lab and Nativa.
In a series of dedicated articles, One UniCredit will share the insights and motivations of the founders participating in "Tech Women for Sustainable Business - UniCredit Journey for Impact Transformation", the 6-month project developed in partnership with NATIVA and dedicated to 20 innovative Italian start-ups - different in terms of sector and geographical origin - but united by a common ground: female leadership.
In this second episode, we also asked them why they joined the programme and why they believe in ESG values. These are their answers with a brief presentation of their businesses:
Co-Founder Fili Pari
Fili Pari is the start-up focused on research and development of innovative,marble-based fabrics and garments, which respect the environment and the territory. Patented MARM \ MORE is the first marble-powder made fabric.
"ESG is an important indicator that allows us to read into the company's progress, a fundamental driver of innovation."
Graffiti for Smart City
CEO & Co-Founder di Graffiti for Smart City
Graffiti for Smart City produces smart walls, intelligent walls composed by bio resin mosaics (made by Mosaico Digitale) and a control unit which offers a Wi-Fi hotspot connection; the possibility to speak with a virtual assistant, who answers questions and offers entertainment services; the integration of services requested ad hoc, given it is a completely upgradeable hardware and the possibility to guarantee services compatible with 5G technology.
"I believe in ESG because a company works better if it applies sustainable criteria in its routine, producing money and ethical results. The thought and information of each human being continually evolves going more and more in the direction of sustainability.
Today it is extremely important to demonstrate the positive impact that companies have on society and the environment!"
A real estate social network that can also be used through an APP compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices, Homepal is a platform where private users can independently manage property sales and rental negotiations, without any intermediation.
"ESG is, indeed, an investment rather than a cost, and nowadays a true need.
Facing sustainability challenges can help companies make good long-term investment decisions. I'd say that 'those who care win'".
