Startup Grind meets iPress

Monday, September 16, 2019, 4:30 – 7:30 PM UTC

Startup Grind Bocconi University will have Marisandra Lizzi as guest speaker. She will be back in Italy after two months in New York, where her startup (the only one from Italy) has been incubated by NUMA and will share with us very unique information on innovation applied to the communication field.

About this event

Marisandra wrote about herself:

"Dreams can come true if you read a lot and follow your passions.

I’ve been an avid reader since I was a child. The first time I heard of someone who wanted to sell books around the world from Seattle was in 1995.

It was Jeff Bezos: I started reading everything about him and the Internet. And now? I’ve met with him twice, during two of his visits to Italy, and have been working for his company for over 10 years: I’ve founded a PR agency, Mirandola Comunicazione, and a startup, iPressLIVE, in Italy and I worked for a couple of year in the Italian Government Digital Transformation Team.

Since back then, I’ve only had one mission:

to show people how the Internet can improve their lives, if you have a thorough knowledge of how it works. If you don’t, there is a risk that your life will become worse, not better.

It looks like something is wrong with the Internet. There is too much junk around. We need smart filters to read only what is relevant for us and silence what is only noise to have more time to get in touch with powerful people and increase our network.

And it is also from this intuition that iPressLIVE was born: a tool designed for communicators who make this network their main activity, but that is also open to readers in general. Today we are trying to break down every wall to build a world where every single reader can easily interact with his favorite authors through different media.

Try to imagine: it's as if we were all shining through what we write online and, in this universe of particles represented by the Web, it's as if our brightness increased along with the number of people interested in our content.

This applies to writers, but also to readers.

Readers want to attract quality authors, while authors look for readers who are really interested in their stories.

iPressLIVE is the magnet that finally unites them.

We’ve mapped all the available Italian sources and are doing the same with US sources and international ones. We are in New York thanks to Numa to speed up this process.

We are the result of all the connections we create around us, we represent the network that we are able to develop. My dream is to help people to get in touch with people through their readings. And dreams can come true, as said."
