We want to help technological pioneers to develop innovative projects aimed to cut 5 million tons of CO2eq in the first 5 years of STEP’s life.
We want the success of daring minds with brilliant projects, which will allow us to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. We invest time, resources and experience with an ultimate goal: establish their projects in the market, providing organizational, operational, and strategic support. We want to connect research and innovation with the world of industry in order to create a virtuous ecosystem that allows the green-tech projects to become successful companies.
STEP Tech Park
STEP is a unique and futuristic physical space of 15,000m2, set within a relaxing green park designed by the agronomist Laura Gatti, the famous Italian landscape architect who created the greenery of the “Vertical Forest” in Milan.
The STEP park (former headquarters of Snam) is a story of tradition which reflects the link between experience and future-oriented research.
Strategically located in Treviglio, STEP is close to the train station that connects Milan in 20 min and Bergamo in 30 min, as well as the international airports of Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio.
STEP offers spacious and bright offices with flexible working hours, broadband connection, complete desks, a fully equipped and avant-garde lab for experimentation, test instruments and a wide range of additional spaces such as a hall for events and elevator pitches, large meeting rooms, relaxing areas, and a fully equipped gym.
We are a place where innovation and cooperation are the fundamentals to create a dynamic ecosystem of start-ups and tech pioneers. A “port” where to set sail.
The STEP lab is the perfect place to prototype your idea, test it, and improve it as many times as needed.
STEP lab has an ambitious goal, just like the entire park: to shape ideas and transform them into innovative and sustainable products or services.
The Lab is equipped with the latest laboratory instruments like 3D printers, an electronic bench, benches equipped with tools and benches for precision mechanical machining supplied with numerical control tools. You will be guided and helped by Tech Experts who will be happy to get their hands dirty with you.
STEP aims to play a key role in the worldwide green innovation.
Thanks to the creation of a technological ecosystem that includes an Ideas Lab, a Workshop 2.0, an extensive network and community, STEP facilitates the transfer of scientific and technological knowledge from the world of start-ups to the business sector.
By using specifically designed tools to assist the work of start-ups and researchers, STEP promotes the development of entrepreneurial ideas and the birth of new business activities.
STEP is not only focused on the Italian market but also beyond national borders. We cooperate with start-ups and partners from all over the world and we take part in projects and initiatives that favour the internationalisation of businesses and Italian talents.
