About this event
Enrico Gasperini began his entrepreneurial activities after obtaining his degree in Computer Science and, by the 1990s, had already begun experimenting with new digital systems with intelligent interfaces.
In 1988 he founded Inferentia which became Italy’s first new media agency to be specialized in online marketing services in 1993, whereby the company developed a number of innovative and internationally-renowned projects. In the year 2000, the company went public on Nuovo Mercato and went on to become a European leader in the digital marketing sector (initially under the name of Inferentia DNM, and later Fullsix).
In 2004 a new challenge arose: Enrico Gasperini founded Digital Magics, an investment company which has been active since 2008 as a venture incubator of startups with a high tech focus. In July 2013 Digital Magics listed on AIM Italia, the Alternative Investment Market for small and medium-sized Italian enterprises with high growth potential organized and managed by Borsa Italiana (Italian Stock Exchange).
This entrepreneurial activity was combined with a passion for promoting new innovations and developments within the digital sector. For this reason, Gasperini has always been committed to the diffusion of the internet culture, and has constantly strived to further the structural and cultural growth of the Italian digital system.
Gasperini was President of the Digital Sector of ASSOCOM since 2004 to 2011, and he was Vice President since 2011. He was Interim President of ASSOCOM from April to December 2013. Since December 2013, he has been board member of ASSOCOM. Since 2007, Gasperini has also been President of the AudiwebJoint Industry Committee, which aims to provide the market with non-biased, quantitative and qualitative information regarding the exploitation of online systems. In 2010, upon completing his first term and after having contributed to the creation of Italy’s first system for measuring and sharing data regarding online audiences, Gasperini was nominated as president of Audiweb.
