Italy, March the 6th, 2013
Startups can be found only in Silicon Valley, London or Berlin? Maybe not! Talent Garden was born with the aim to be the network of digital innovation excellences in the world.
It combines together the value of community and the typical Italian life style and also the concept of Glocal, TAG is selecting the best talents in the digital market such as freelancers, startups and agencies. The goal is to try to make them co-working in a single physical location where everyone could find a perfect place where to work. Starting from the base concept of co-working TAG has developed a range of expertise in building communities in the cities, all this has been possible thanks to the inspiring example of added value existing in Silicon Valley: the geographical proximity between many ecosystem players in a limited territory.
Right in Italy, an area which is not the main focus for international startups, this new phenomenon is growing , starting from the selection of the best Digital Innovator, then providing them a platform where to improve their skills thanks to the cooperation with other talents. It is a new way of co-working and, in particular it can help the growth of a city or an entire country. TAG has already opened, in just one year, in five cities , and is going to in Brazil, China and Indonesia.
This space can be a source for the creation of something special. Talent Garden, with its motto “passion working space”, aims to create a global network of skilled people (in many different cities around the world). To enter the network both founders (the business model is similar to franchising) and inhabitants are selected by the members themselves. Entering in Tag means entering into a network of highly skilled people this can create the right environment for connections and mentorship which help the natural process of growth.
Talent Garden, as the name implies, re-build an imaginary garden in which the various plants (the people) can give life to their ideas and see their dreams that become truth.
The local Campus are opened 24/7, and at the moment there are more than 400 great Italian talents working in Tag who are involved in Digital Creativity and Innovation. The garden theme comes also from the particular design of the spaces, which are featured with cardboard piece of furniture ,completely eco-friendly, chaise-longues, big screens with Xbox and also the football table, because the space’s atmosphere is rich in elements that stimulate sharing and creativity. Working place but also a place for innovation, events and an area with beds: TAG is a real campus where people and ideas can contaminate but is also a place where the globe-trotter entrepreneurs can stop to relax.
“Talent Garden is a place for different and contiguous skills, such as digital and creativity, where the members are selected by the community itself. It is crucial to succeed in making these talents to connect and cooperate, because if these are put in the same physical place they can create something unique and constantly amplifying “, said Davide Dattoli co-founder of TAG.

Today we want to give you a big news, we would like to present you the next Tag space that will open in a few weeks in Pisa (we are going to do this thanks to the words of its co-founders). Yes, it’s true, you have heard well: Talent Garden is still growing and it is going to reach Tuscany!!!!
Here there are the names of the new co-founders and why they decided to open a new TAG, and why exactly in Pisa: Francesco Kiko Corsentino (freelancer IT consultant/web developer&strategist/blogger “Contadini per Passione”), together with Marco Maltinti (Creative Director, Super A3 Designer) and Luigi Doveri (A.D Gruppo Forti).
“But why the opening of a Talent Garden in Pisa? Good question, but it’s easy to find a proper answer. Only one answer? No, so feel comfortable, have a cup a coffee and keep on reading, in order to discover how a dream come truth.
Talent Garden is a strength in the promotion of networking, which is fundamental for a real and proper collective and individual growth. The space is shared by freelancers, agencies, sturtups and teams, investors and angels, all of them have their project and are busy in their activities, but sharing the space of work means also to share the spirit of the place and the every-day-life of work.
We are used to ear and tell the big and important experiences of the Silicon Valley and its cultural background and environment which enables the birth of many projects and of many different sturtups. But what is going on in the silicon Valley is going on also in other parts of the world, for example in Berlin, Dublin, Tel Aviv and Paris. And if another important place for the development of this culture were Italy? With its strong net of local spots, where people co-work in order to innovate and create a new kind of net?
We have chosen Talent Garden exactly for these reasons, because we want to re-create the cultural environment that we have mentioned. We also want to give importance to creativity, which is the base of innovation. Another reason for our choice is the need of braveness that is so lacking in Italy, entrepreneurs are too scared of failing, and the result is a total paralysis which become jealousness for the success reached by others.
We are so blind that we cannot face our potential, and we are constantly looking for something that is already here, right in our country.
We chose Talent Garden because we love the green stimulating office: young, attractive, comfortable, functional, and also professional. Talent Garden is all these qualities. I spent three days between Milan and Brescia, bumping from carton desks, to very comfortable chairs, amazing meeting rooms, and I understand that words like renewability, recycling and design are key-words and they are not only referred to Talent Garden’s architectonical shape, but they are about its philosophy and the ideas that here are free to come to life, growing as if they were plants in a garden where they can find all what they need in order to proliferate and sprout.
In this hard historical period, complex from both a civil and economical point of view, what are we going to face in Pisa is a real challenge: we have to work and share passion with the inhabitants of the space. We will start from the sharing of the office, passing to ideas, skills and experiences. Talent Garden is the ideal place where to realize a proper professional and personal contamination. Here we can try to open the narrow minds to which we are sadly used, and to become much more ready to cooperation. Usually competition is an enemy of entrepreneurs, but here can become a strong partner.
How can we define Talent Garden? We can say that is a physical platform for the birth of ideas and opportunities. It’s a sort of physical social network, to use WeWork words, where every day the important thing is the exchange of views, both a personal or a professional one.
Personally I’m sure that innovation is the outcome of the exchange of ideas. Is better if the exchange is between vivid, genial, creative and passionate minds. I’m also convinced about the fact that innovation is the outcome of the exchange of information and formation, is also important to work in close contact with other open minded people, who are working in your field, but also in a different one, in order to create new synergies. Talent Garden is trying to create the right conditions in order to allow that. It’s not only the simple rent of a desk, but a way to light what is born on the territory and thanks to local talents. All that become truth with the every-day-work of the members of the space, trough projects, events and so on. It’s the place of information (as Manuel Castells had foreseen). There is only small problem: we can’t wait the opening day of Pisa’s space. But we are ready and close to that day. Stay tuned”
