The technology platform for internationalisation

Leonardo Smart

LEONARDO SMART is the development project for SPICI’s new technological platform for internationalisation, realised thanks to the financial support received from the European Union, the Italian State and the Campania Region within the framework of the POR Campania FESR 2014-2020.

SPICI designed and developed Leonardo Smart: a platform to optimise the business matchmaking process, starting from its database of contacts.


Leonardo Smart is a new platform based on Artificial Intelligence that was created to bridge the gap between demand and supply of services and solutions for the internationalisation and digital innovation of SMEs.

The platform aims to innovate the way to accompany and support Small and Medium Enterprises in their internationalisation and digital transformation processes through matchmaking.


SPICI has developed a platform for international relationship marketing which, using artificial intelligence algorithms, optimises the matching process between companies, universities and research centres.

Leonardo Smart provides a ‘unified and integrated’ response to the growth needs of SMEs for digitisation and internationalisation through Smart Matchmaking.

The objectives of Leonardo Smart are:

  • Create a smart community capable of expanding customers’ market opportunities;
  • Strengthen business opportunities through matchmaking and internationalisation activities for its clients;
  • Support SMEs in the digital transformation process, through an integrated and customised service that makes them more competitive;
  • Offer companies effective tools for modernisation and growth, leveraging innovative technologies and solutions to reach new users/customers/markets.

Leonardo Smart is a search engine based on a graph database that, through artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning systems, allows in-depth profiling of customers and advanced matchmaking activities, identifying potential partners and business contacts.

The aims of the platform are realised in the following functionalities of Leonardo Smart:

  • Scouting: search and mapping of companies to feed the existing database.
  • Monitoring: updating of company data in the database.
  • Matchmaking: identification of companies with the greatest affinity to the search criteria.

Leonardo Smart is an advanced technological solution for Matchmaking activities, representing an innovative search engine to support SMEs.


Leonardo Smart is a proprietary platform developed by SPICI, to facilitate business matching services on the international market in the world of the digital economy.

It is a user-friendly intelligent system, working with innovative algorithms and software, to create an effective and functional matching between demand and supply of innovative entrepreneurial/scientific opportunities.

SPICI, through Leonardo Smart, leads:

  • Advanced search, to find new customers/partners nationally and internationally;
