Vertis Venture invests €1m in Italy’s LinkPass


The venture capital arm of Italian asset manager Vertis has invested €1m in LinkPass, a Naples, Italy-based start-up that is developing a mobile app that allows users to meet and contact professionals during events.

Formerly known as Infostronomy and incubated in SeedLab, LinkPass is due to launch an app that enables users to meet business people during events and discover relevant exhibitors during fairs.

The deal was made through the firm’s Vertis Venture fund, a €25m vehicle that provides start-up, early-stage and development capital to businesses based in southern Italy.
