What our startups and partners say about us

An all-Italian initiative that, thanks to the professionalism and commitment of the Digital Magics team, has produced valuable results that are absolutely in line with international standards.

Magic Wand is a highly valuable program that connects start-ups, Digital Magics and partner companies in a unique path of acceleration. It has allowed us to further explore the Fintech and Insurtech ecosystem, identifying and starting direct dialogue with some of the most promising start-ups.
Head of SisalPay strategy
Joining this programme has allowed us to acquire, in little time, experience and procedures that would have been impossible to obtain on an independent and traditional path. Thanks to Magic Wand, our company is on the market and is generating turnover. We were part of an excellent training programme that was accompanied by great enthusiasm.
Participation in Magic Wand for Credito Valtellinese was not only a great opportunity to contribute to the development of Fintech in Italy, but also a unique opportunity to liven up the internal search for stimulating and innovative business horizons.

Head of the Credito Valtellinese Digital Bank
We had access to a network of very high-profile consultants and got able to address the market. Some interesting ideas emerged for the development of our business by working with the acceleration programme partners.
For BNL – Gruppo BNP Paribas, cross industry experience and contamination with startup ecosystem are primary. In this context, the partnership with Magic Wand is an opportunity for the bank to boost connections among all the actors who run the transformation.
Head of the BNL Start-up Ecosystem
Thanks to the experience and know-how of the network provided by Digital Magics, we were able to consolidate our business idea in a very little time. The programme offers ample opportunity to meet companies and top experts in all areas of a start-up's development.
We are satisfied with the programme, as it allowed us to contact very promising start-ups in the field. For us, it is important to be part of initiatives that contribute to the development of the Italian Fintech ecosystem.

The training I received from several successful professionals together with our tutors was extraordinary. I was lucky enough to access and exploit powerful tools thanks to which Diaman Tech’s business growth path accelerated both potential and vision.
