Competition in Italy and incubation in Los Angeles!

Heroes becomes for 3 days the center of innovation in the Mediterranean area, the place of the startups and the future, the reference point for those who want to design and share with other people scenarios and prospects for worldwide growth. That's why this year we want to recreate the same synergy that was present in the first edition of Heroes thanks to the partnership with Israel and with the different Israeli startups that attended the event.
