Fondazione Nova

Who we are

Fondazione NOVA is the leading pro-bono player in the open talent ecosystem, focused on supporting development, education and meritocracy in Italy.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to create the Italian talent ecosystem champion, a truly meritocratic accelerator of Italy’s talent pipeline that supports all talents, across different age groups, to achieve their maximum potential through education, mentorship and strong collaboration between the business and academic communities.

We aim to enforce meritocracy as a core value of the career system, optimize the allocation gap between talent supply and demand, and bridge the opportunity gap that currently exists in our country.

Our Vision

We envision Italy as an open ecosystem that can attract and nurture the most brilliant minds from all over the word and bring back those that can contribute to the growth of our country and the realization of this dream.

We seek to revitalize the spirit of young talents to recreate the atmosphere that we experienced within poles of excellence around the world and that allowed us to grow, improve ourselves and develop the desire to contribute to our community.

Our History

Fondazione NOVA results from the combination of the efforts of NOVA-MBA and Mentors4u.
