Coordinator of the Master course in “Innovation Design”
Guido earned his Master’s Degree at the London School of Economics thanks to a scholarship from the Italian Government, and was a Visiting Scholar at the Stanford University in 1999, at the peak of the Internet hype. He founded two tech companies before turning twenty-eight, and three in total, based in Italy, Ireland, and the USA. The largest of these companies became an international e-commerce enabler with offices in four countries and a team of 50 people from 15 different nationalities. Guido lived in Silicon Valley for 4 years and closed funding rounds with investors from Italy, Switzerland and the USA. As a recognized pioneer in his field, he introduced concepts to the European market that became tech standards, including the idea of end-to-end e-commerce outsourcing. In addition to his passion for technology, Guido has been a successful athlete: he raced with the Italian National Ski Team and represented his country over two seasons at the Europa Cup.
