Mariarita Costanza, engineer of Gravina in Puglia, technical director of Macnil and judge Shark Tank, the television talent show on startup, long known this reality. Now “has become a small innovation campus, an ecosystem that gathers all the necessary functions to sight innovative projects to the market,” he explains. “In a time when companies are not hiring and find it difficult to move forward, in a region such as Puglia undervalued in terms of enterprise and entrepreneurial initiative, to Laserinn is an experience to be watched closely,” he concludes.
