From a bread beer to a social aggregator, Ibrida explored and absorbed every possibility to build a responsible beer brand. And thereafter, from one concept to the other, from one prototype to the next, from one presentation to the elevator pitch, Ibrida has evolved... and how!
Ibrida is supported by Cariplo Factory S.r.l. (CF), a hub of Open Innovation, Talent Management and Corporate Social Responsibility. Cariplo feeds the growth of Italian startups through vertical innovation programs and open innovation activities with the most important companies. They accompany startups in the search for investments thanks to their role as advisor for Indaco Venture Partners.
Ibrida was selected among the best 10 projects in Italy in the field “Food & Environment” of “GetIt!

Following the benefits from the Getit! Call, Ibrida got the opportunity for an incubation program in Milan with Make a Cube, the first certified incubator and accelerator in Italy specialized in companies with high social, environmental and cultural value.
