Super cool analysis, thanks guys!

I would add also the following when talking about foreign funds investing in the ecosystem:

Xfarm, one of the most important agritech Italy ventures, backed which a €17M Series B led by Swisscom Ventures last year.

When talking about Depop, it's worth mentioning though that despite the founder was Italian, they moved to the UK after their €2M seed so I wouldn't consider their exit a sort of an "Italian" exit.

Finally, when talking about crowdfunding, Mamacrowd by Azimut is probably the biggest one, but it's worth adding Doorway (https://www.doorwayplatform.com), a fairly new player acquiring traction in the ecosystem supporting startup investment education for the country's financial players boosting Italian startup growth in terms of equity fundraising.
