the story

This telecom engineer, an admirer of Thomas Edison (with all due respect to all Nikola Tesla’s fans), is a Venture Capital “serial” optimist. His vocation had him stumble into the profession during his final year internship, he believes in inventors that are also builders, those that see themselves more as marathoners than sprinters.

My job is to look forward, not alone, but with and for others. When it’s no longer about dreaming but about making, about creating value, we see who is staring back at us; we understand the importance of the human factor. As a venture capitalist, undoubtedly my greatest pleasure comes from meeting men and women with diverse talents and from a variety of backgrounds.



Which are the three breakthrough innovations I would like to be a part of in the medium / long term?

I see tomorrow’s world as an even more connected and dematerialised one, with intuitive and augmented interfaces, disseminated Artificial Intelligence, techno-health…

What does risk mean to me?

Risk is not seeing pitfall factors or seeing them without trying to actively overcome them.

My favourite quote

« We can be heroes, just for one day »
