We will mobilize all the tools at our disposal for commercialization and easy access to finance for entrepreneurs in biotechnology and health technologies, which are difficult to scale and struggle to access finance . At this stage, the financing of our companies became possible with institutional/individual investors and share offerings with the participation of our collaborators. Last year we financed nearly 60 million lire. This amount is growing rapidly. Through this cooperation, we will create an investor pool with thousands of investors for an area where initiatives such as healthcare and biotechnology are difficult to scale. Thus, many investment opportunities will be offered to investors. Our country has significant resources in terms of entrepreneurship and investment.
