More about Startup Weekend:
All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic, but fun, world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

My career began at Sisal SpA where I was project manager for the start-up of a web betting site. I continued at FIAT where I was product manager for the web portal and landed in 2001 at Wind. In this telco I worked as VAS Product Manager and my role was to stimulate market adoption of Value Added Services, using it as enabler of new media and content services.
My most successful project in the mobile sector was launched in 2004, while I was Director of Teleunit Mobile VAS Business that led to the creation of Neomobile in 2007: a company that in a few years became a leading player in the mobile entertainment and commerce market worldwide.
For 8 years I held the role of Chief Operating Officer with an overall responsibility for business and organization, including business development, marketing and media activities.
For about 2 years I held the role of CEO of Neomobile working hard to build a learning organization where people are proactive and positive, have ferocious ambition and are motivated to achieve their highest goals through learning and innovation.
I am very proud of the results achieved with my team while I was leading the company as COO and then CEO. We have been able to generate more than 1 billion Euro of revenues in about 10 years, we have grown from employing just 5 people to almost 300, we have been able to generate positive ebitda every year since our inception.
I am now Vice President of Neomobile. My role is to enable and catalyse innovation at Neomobile through development of relationship with the startup ecosystem.
I have a strong passion for the lean approach and the world of startups that has led me to become angel investor, mentor and advisor for accelerators like Luiss-Enlabs and Startupbootcamp.
