CEO & Co-founder

◈ In 2015 I launched CleanBnB, the short-rental business leader, which has become in a few years the most widespread Italian operator in its field, with other 40 active locations. After being accelerated in Seed, the company faced five subsequent capital increase round, including two equity crowdfunding campaigns. Today CleanBnB is among the most interesting success cases within the startup environment in Italy. ◈ As Business Angel, I have been member of leading associations (such as Italian Angels for Growth) and co-founder of incubators (such as the Seed Project, where I serve as Managing Director). I am supporting new ventures and startup deals with seed and angel funding, and coaching the entrepreneurs from early stage to steady startup phase. ◈ Within the most innovative startups I launched in recent past: ✓ CleanBnB (hospitality), soon become a leading venture in the booming business of short-term rental of real estate; very good case in facility management, fast growing through several rounds of equity financing. ✓ Cashaa (fintech), which has built and beta tested a blockchain-powered forex platform, offering innovative exchange and money transfer services between fiat and cryptocurrencies; Cashaa has come a long way in a short time, and have ranked as a Top 100 Most Influential Blockchain Company in the world. ✓ NFE (cleantech), a leading European player in engineering, project and technology development, and asset management in renewable energies such as solar (utility-scale, commercial and domestic scale), wind (and mini-wind), biomass, hydro. ◈ As Managing Director of 2F Capital and board member of leading investment companies in innovative ventures, I am responsible for project development, funding and construction, along with asset management. Focus on cleantech projects (renewable energies, environmental services), fintech (innovative forex and savings management), tourism and hospitality.
