MISSION

SerenDPT is a Benefit Corporation with a clear mission: to help repopulate Venice by supporting the creation of startups that will produce high quality jobs in the historic city.


WHO WE ARE

WE ARE JOB CREATORS

Venice has lost 3/4 of its citizens since 1950. The population is down to 50.000 residents in the historic city and another 25.000 on the islands of the Lagoon.

SerenDPT is dedicated to the goal of stopping the exodus by inspiring young people of all ages and Venetians of any origin to live and work here.

WE ARE INVENTORS

We give shape to ideas.

We believe in open innovation and contamination between digital and traditional as essential ingredients to valuable projects with impact on our territory and real social benefits.


WE ARE SOCIAL INNOVATORS

We seek technology-driven innovations to social problems.

We collect big-data to identify social needs in our city, and foster the development of innovative solutions to address them.


WE ARE RESEARCHERS

All our projects are evidence-based and supported by stringent scientific methodologies.

We have a data-driven approach to finding answers to problems and needs and all the knowledge that we collect is shared with the city and the world.

We are proud of our partnership with the Venice Project Center of WPI, that has produced over 300 studies for Venice since 1988.

WHAT WE DO

In fulfillment of its mission, SerenDPT focuses on three main areas:
