To translate its Research and Culture initiatives into jobs that will repopulate the lagoon, SerenDPT dedicates its resources to the creation and support of Startups in the historic city.

SerenDPT's Startup initiatives include:

  • a 'startup factory' that develops Startups based on ideas developed in-house (like a startup 'studio') based on our own research efforts. SerenDPT launched its own startup, called daAaB in 2016.

  • a 'startup farm' which grows ideas originating from the Venice area, through startup competitions, hackathons (like Climathon Venice) and most importantly through our MITdesignX Venice program
