A collage of smart stories about people, innovation, and impact, this blog is my attempt to explore the intersection of digital finance, entrepreneurship and sustainability.

Hi, I am Luca. A chartered marketer (MCIM) with a global MBA from Durham University, a journey on which I wrote on the Financial Times, I am currently pursuing a PhD in Entrepreneurship focusing on the retail investor behaviour in the context of equity crowdfunding whilst teaching e-Business at the University of Worcester.

This is the first blog layout, back in 2016. It has changed over time to better the reader experience.

What’s in a name?

Oliver* is my both virtual alter-ego and online companion. Being one of the most used names in the world, it is my way to suggest that everybody can contribute to creating positive change.

In such a perspective, Oliver signals openness, inclusivity and diversity all necessary ingredients to deliver a sustainable form of society.
