Partner at United Ventures

Startupbootcamp FoodTech Rome Mentor

I can help talented entrepreneurs with great ideas in setting up properly their startup. A good team, a good execution plan and a clear fund raising strategy are crucial for success.

After graduating with a Master’s degree in “Technology Innovation Management” from Scuola Superiore di Studi Sant’Anna in Pisa, I worked in the field of technology innovation for economic development agencies in Sardinia (such as BIC and Consorzio 21).

From 1995 I worked as Product Manager for Online Services for Video On Line (which later became Tin.it), the first italian Internet service provider, following the start-up phase and the acquisition by Telecom Italia.

In 1998 I co-founded Tiscali, first as Marketing & Communication Director and then as SVP Media & VAS, coordinating Tiscali’s pan-European activities in this area and promoting the creation of Tiscali LABS. In July 2006 I was appointed CEO of Tiscali Italia SpA. In January 2009 I founded The Net Value. I am also Managing Partner of United Ventures, an Italian venture capital fund focused on the digital industry.
