I am a company builder with extensive experience in Venture Capital industry, both in VC funds and Fund of Funds management and startup creation.
I promoted and managed venture capital funds up to 150M€ in Italy (Quantica SGR with Principia Funds, EUREKA! Venture SGR with Eureka! Fund) and abroad (Axon Partners Group), established companies and created successful businesses from scratch up to scaleup with huge exits (EOS, biotech startup sold to an American listed company at 470M$ with 12x return).
I am CEO at EUREKA! Venture SGR, the first Italian venture capital focused exclusively to deeptech investments that manages “Eureka! Fund – Technology Transfer” dedicated to technology transfer investments in partnership with major Italian research centers and universities.
