– Vision, optimism, motivation. These are the watchwords of the entrepreneurs who gathered yesterday afternoon in Portonovo for “Visioni d’Impresa”, the round table organized by Confapi Industria Ancona in collaboration with illimity bank to assess economic scenarios and find counter- possible movements to deal with the crisis that we are experiencing.
Among the speakers, Corrado Passera, founder and CEO of Illimity Bank. According It will pass “The Marches is a region that has a real entrepreneurial spirit, which shows energy and which, having known how to diversify, has neighborhoods which manage to be more resilient than others in the face of the crisis. Vitality and solidity in an Italy capable of internationalization where companies often have enormous hidden potential”.
In short, we start from entrepreneurs, from being Marche “which is both a defect and a value – said Giorgio Giorgetti, president of Confapi Marche – stubborn as few but with an unparalleled professional education that has remained in the roots of the young and very young”. A moment of confrontation in a delicate period and for which it is necessary “to unite, to have greater representativeness in a world market in constant evolution – added Giorgetti – and to have the possibility, as today, of dealing with a bank whose mission is small and medium-sized enterprises, a change of pace compared to an Italy focused on large structures”.
In the meeting room of the SeeBay hotel in Portonovo, about 200 entrepreneurs listening to the interventions of the meeting began after the greeting of the president of the Marche region, Francesco Aquaroli. “Companies are suffering from capitalization and liquidity – he said – they are struggling to operate in the climate of uncertainty in which we live, where everything takes a back seat to the rises in energy prices which risk desertifying our industrial fabric. Manufacturing is an excellence which today, with the failing Russian market, must reshape the offer. We are trying to approach other markets but it is not a simple or immediate process and must be done in a unified way and with the most appropriate tools. In addition to the responses that we are trying to give ourselves as a Region, we expect systemic interventions from the Government and the European Union”.
Possible recipe? “As far as we are concerned – explained Mauro barchiesi, president of Confapi Industria Ancona – we have tried to stimulate entrepreneurs on the management control that is the basis of the digitalization of processes. We need to invest in technology and knowledge but investing today is difficult”. Investments that may come from Illimity Bank.
“The Marches – underlined Carlo Panella, head of Direct Banking at the Illimity bank – have an exceptional productive fabric, made up of small and very small businesses which are the backbone of Italy. The entrepreneur from Marche seems ready to deal with banks in a non-traditional way, exploiting the network and digitalizing to plan “. Grand finale with Paolo Manocchi, trainer in life behavior and Business Coach. To raise awareness even more about this stubbornness des Marches mentioned several times during the meeting, which is the essence of being an entrepreneur.
“Moments like this are important – concluded Michele Montecchiani, director of Confapi Industria Ancona – they must be reproduced and managed to help the companies with which we are in daily contact to help entrepreneurs in their daily problems”.
