Factor I is the Banca Ifis project that wants to promote small and medium Italian enterprise, investigating the structure behind the figures: which SMEs are growing on the market? What challenges do they have to deal with?
The goal is to find that “factor” making a business successful. To understand that, we want to take you on a journey through numbers, products, people and local communities. A story of today’s Italy that works, produces, wins, made of small structures adding value to the market every day.
The 3 factors of the I factor
Analysis of the economic and financial trends of SMEs and of the 9 main sectors of Italian production.
The greatest challenge for today’s companies is being able to identify the main evolutionary trends and the critical issues, to turn them into opportunities to invest in, creating growth and profitability. Thanks to this project, Banca Ifis offers itself as a communicator of company culture, by analysing the figures and telling the stories of winning entrepreneurial structures which can then become guides for all those wanting to set up companies today and tomorrow.

The I factor
The key to success of a stellar SME
We approached an ecosystem of around 61,762 SMEs and identified over 4,300 experiencing significant growth. Almost 1,100 SMEs had growth rates of over 20% per year and we called them “stellar“.
What will be the reactions of SMEs to the unexpected Covid-19 emergency? We listened to entrepreneurs to understand how each company has reacted to the pandemic in order to protect people and their business.
