I graduated in Computer Science for Management at the University of Bologna. Thanks to this technical-economic background, and to my passion for the world of innovation, I became passionate about the start-up ecosystem. For the past 5 years, I have worked as Digital Project Manager in a start-up in Bologna specialising in Big Data. This experience gave me first-hand experience of what it really means to create and grow a start-up in Italy. For this reason, I decided to contribute to the growth of this ecosystem by joining the Startup Unit of Almacube, where I hold the position of Startup Program Specialist.
