who we are

Efesto is an independent boutique of specialists engaged in the development of new technologies of industrial interest to accelerate product and process innovation.


what we do

We support product and process innovation in each stage of development, from conception and setting up to project conclusion.

In the preliminary phase we check the state of the art and research technologies of potential interest, critically highlighting the risks and opportunities of each option.

During the development phase, we assist in finding industrial and academic partners, we provide specialized advice through a wide network of researchers in Italy and abroad, and we verify the progress towards the objectives.

We support industries, start-ups and entrepreneurs to obtain the best economic return from their investments in innovation.

We carry out our services by ensuring that we always follow the three excellences that we have set as the cornerstones of our business idea, and which guarantee that we always create the greatest possible value for our clients: excellence in skills, excellence in timing and excellence in communications.

Efesto: material solutions for innovative companies.


It is not possible to split the concept of innovation from that of sustainability.

Making innovation today has a nobler meaning than a few decades ago. If once innovating meant creating something that simply worked better, limiting attention to the product you were creating, today it is no longer the case. We are required to consider that all our actions have consequences on the environment much wider than those related to its mere use, and that these consequences can be serious enough to affect the climate, ecosystems, and our own civilization.

Efesto takes an act of serious responsibility in proposing itself as the promoter of an innovation that is not an end in itself, but committed to protecting the planet on which we live.

The Method with which we carry out our services is not only useful to improve existing technologies but also to effectively and harmoniously combine the needs of technological development with those of environmental preservation.
