Whether it be ChatGPT, next-gen fintech solutions or autonomous EVs, startups have an unparalleled ability to disrupt and provide innovative and progressive development that drives much-needed change. With their out-of-the-box ideas, these forward-thinking companies at the ground floor inspire us to strive just a bit harder to come up with the next great solution or work towards improving society, making it a little better for all of us.

Recently, the Torino Cities of the Future Techstars Accelerator has announced its Demo Day event for this year, featuring ten innovative startups from across Europe.
