I really love the world of startups since I founded one and successfully closed its exit. I have strong connections with other young (and young inside) Founders, Business Angels, Academy, Stakeholders and Crowdfunding Platforms. In the last years, I have been a teacher in Private courses and University classes about entrepreneurship (with more than 3k hours under my belt) and I have mentored perspective startuppers for Public and Private Incubators and Business Plan competitions. Since 2012 I have spoken about entrepreneurship and digital world in Fairs all over Italy, in front of more than 2,5k people. I live near Venice and I work mainly in the North East of Italy, and I am often in Milan, where the Presidency of my Business Angels Network is located.
