About Us

Make it is a startup studio. Our mission is to create impactful startups, and that’s what we’ve been specialising on since the first day: “Be better at building impactful startups”.

For the last 4 years, thanks to an incredible 40-people strong team, we have been working with over 200 clients achieving hard skills in building digital products composed of either software (mobile or cloud applications) and/or electronic devices (hardware/Internet of Things). We have also created/invested in 5 startups, to gain entrepreneurial skills.

Just recently, we decided to go one step further in our will to build startups efficiently and nimbly: further expand our capabilities around Hardware and IoT by having a small scale Factory to quicker prototype and iterate on our product creation.

In this process, we want to communicate our mission and vision. We want to be the convergence point of the entire innovative ecosystem, from entrepreneurs to investors.
