At NUMA, we consider digital innovation as a way to create economic and social value.

Since the beginning, our model is made of two pillars: high performance and openness. We enable all types of entrepreneurs to collaborate. Start-ups, corporates, SME’s, communities and public institutions, far from opposing one another, can grow together and become mutually beneficial. This is our belief.
NUMA brings together under one umbrella synergetic activities: coworking, start-up acceleration, community outreach and open innovation programs.
