Hi, I’m FRANCESCO. I’m an entrepreneur living in Rome, Italy. I am a fan of photography, technology, and entrepreneurship.

I was born in 1985 and I spent my '20s living in Perugia, Istanbul, Bangkok and California. I received a Master's Degree in Management in Italy and I later specialized in Film Production in Los Angeles.

Before starting the adventure of being an entrepreneur, I worked abroad as a project manager, fundraiser and creative film producer. In 2014 I founded Byke, the first ride-sharing app for mopeds and scooters in Europe. In 2015 Byke became Scooterino a company that raised more than $800K from American investors, joined the Laudato Si Challenge and delivered more than 30,000 rides in the city of Rome.

I'm an advisor to many startups, member of Skills for Equity, a network whose mission is to add value to promising projects through experience and skills and co-founder of another company I am very proud of named "Hoppipolla - feed up your mind", a subscription service that monthly curates boxes containing original creations of indie culture, music, Italian design, and illustration and that has been growing by 60% month on month in the last year.

My goal is to improve quality of life in modern cities, to inspire personal growth through discovery and to promote the work of independent, creative people.
