About the event

The Winter Tech Gala 2023, reserved for the Gomry and FCM community, celebrates the efforts of the Carla Mercurio Foundation in empowering emerging talents within the tech ecosystem.

This is an exclusive gala event set in one of Rome's biggest and most historic private mansions: Palazzo Colonna. With a highly selected guest list and investors from Silicon Valley in attendance, this gathering promises to be a hub for knowledge exchange, networking, and potential collaborations and a tribute to Italian innovation, providing a unique opportunity to engage with some of the brightest minds in the tech industry.

The Foundation is committed to continuing to provide scholarships in the STEM field and to activate specific training courses in the same sector. Any donation received will be aimed at making that possible.

Among its past activities, the Carla Mercurio Foundation has committed to helping exceptional students in need to pursue the Silicon Valley Fellowship and attend a life-changing experience that, in the past 20 years, has enabled hundreds of students to reach the next step in their careers.

Here there is a testimonial of a fellow who won one of those scholarships to attend the Silicon Valley Fellowship: Angelica, from Italy to Stanford on a mission to transform healthcare with AI

The alumni have founded over 30 firms valued at over $1 billion, with nearly 10 becoming billionaires. The Thiel Fellowship, in conjunction with Z Fellows, have been the main drivers and inspiration for the Silicon Valley Fellowship.
