I was born in Milan: just like my city I am creative while hard worker.

Innovation is a family tradition: Alessandro Anzani is the name of my great grandfather, inventor of motorbike, car, and airplane Stellar & V-engines; an adventurer: his speed runs in my blood.

My initials are the names of my grandparents, both military: grandpa was General of the Police and Africa Lieutenant General when Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, and Libya were Italian colonies; his diaries inspired the movie Bengasi.

I have been an entrepreneur & an investor since I can remember. Venture Capital is my passion: technology, progress, and entrepreneurship. I serve as:

· Managing Partner at Smartup Capital: angel fund investing in NYS

· General Partner at Network Society Ventures: seed global VC fund

· Ambassador for Summit.co

· Vice President and VP of Entrepreneurship for Bocconi University, NYC

· Mentor for the startup accelerators at CUNY, Syracuse, Cornell, and SUNY; judge for the NYS Business Plan competition for 4 years

I hold a Cornell University A.MBA, a SDA Bocconi MRE, a Bocconi MSE. Sapere aude, nosce te ipsum.

We are all connected: I am involved in sustainability & impact investing. I love diversity, anthropology, demographics, and philosophy: a backpack, a camera, and a plane to a developing country make me happy.

I love motorbikes & playing rock'n'roll.
