12/22/79, Milan: just like my city I am creative while serious and dedicated.

I am passionate about innovation, a family tradition: Alessandro Anzani is the name of my great grandfather, inventor of motorbike, car, and airplane Stellar and V-engines; an adventurer: his speed and innovation run in my blood. My initials, A. E., are the names of my grandparents, both military: my grandpa, mom's side, was General of the Police and Africa Lieutenant General when Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, and Libya were Italian colonies; the movie Bengasi was inspired by his diaries.

I have been a serial entrepreneur and an investor since I was 18. Venture Capital is my passion: technology, progress, entrepreneurship. I am now Managing Partner at Smartup Capital: an angel fund investing in NYS new-tech. I am General Partner at Network Society Ventures: a seed stage global venture capital fund. I am Ambassador for Summit.co. I am Vice President and VP of Entrepreneurship for Bocconi University, NYC chapter.I mentor a number of startups and collaborate with CUNY, Syracuse, Cornell University, and SUNY where I have been judging the NYS Business Plan competition for 4 years.

I believe that learning is a continuous process. I hold a Cornell A.MBA, MRE, MSE, and I would love to get a psychology degree one day.

I seek diversity in landscapes, faces, tastes, and costumes. A backpack, a camera, and a plane ticket are all I need: I have travelled all
