Forbes compiled its 2019 edition of Europe’s 30 Under 30 in Technology and among them, it listed 28-years-old from Brescia Davide Dattoli, the founder and CEO of coworking and education space Talent Garden, one of the most promising tech business platforms in Europe. The mission of Talent Garden, the largest European coworking network with 28 locations in 8 countries, is to bring together techies, freelancers, investors, and anyone with a stake in the technology sector to create blossoming relationships, products, and careers.
Dattoli, who’s raised $12 million for his enterprise to date, explained: “I come from a family of entrepreneurs: my father opened several restaurants in the city where I was born and my mother organizes events, and just working in the restaurant I learned what ‘hospitality’ means.” From this starting point, he said “we are trying to create a place where all the ecosystem can meet, can connect, between each other, and try to stay together. In Talent Garden what we try is not only to create the coworking but to really create a place where people feel at home. Where we can really feel and grow connections between each other and stay well.” This is how Dattoli’s ‘global family’ was born, and how it trains every year between 200 and 500 young programmers, big data experts, digital marketers, and managers ready to jump into new opportunities.
The young CEO reacted to the coveted Forbes listing writing in a Facebook post: “I want to say thank you to our incredible team. Today it’s official: I have been selected as one of the top 30 under 30 by Forbes and this wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible work of all the Talent Garden team! It’s incredible where Talent Garden brought all of us in the last past years! Thanks to all our community of coworkers, students, and corporates who believe in us. The Forbes under 30 list selects the top 30 of the brightest young entrepreneurs, leaders, stars all over Europe. The other persons in the list are really incredible!”
