A chartered marketer (MCIM) with an MBA, I am currently pursuing a PhD in Entrepreneurship, focusing on investor behaviour in the context of equity crowdfunding. Teaching all things digital is part of the journey. I blog about the intersection of crowdfunding and sustainability at and hold a weekly column on inclusivity on the Italian daily "La Discussione".
