Companies I work or worked for:
McKinsey & Company, Amicomed
Achievements (products built, personal awards won):

Pharmaidea: my previous start-up. An innovative B2B pharmaceutical distributor that created a virtual shortline between pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies, first in Italy and Europe. At the time we started there were several similar initiatives all around Europe: Pharmaidea was the only one to succeed.

A friend and I (both working in consulting at that time) had the idea. We recruited other 3 co-founders to have a full team. At my exit Pharmaidea was a company of over Euro 160 mln revenues and over 150 full-time employees.

If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to change the world.
