Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
In 2009 I had been the first person selected for a Double Degree Program between my Italian University and a US Law School where I graduated with summa cum laude, being awarded 8 book awards.
In 2011, after living abroad for three years, I founded Customized Rome, an organization aimed to inform tourists and visitors about local art initiative and events. The association was quite successful and allowed me to get to know better the cultural and artistic scene of my city.
Also thanks to this adventure, in 2014 I was among the first grantees of the European fund “Torno Subito” with a project based in San Francisco and in Rome for one of the most prestigious Italian Art Institution. During the project I could study fund-raising strategies and Non Profit legislation, applying them for Equoevento's growth.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
Equoevento could count from its beginning on important and prestigious partners such as Hilton, the Olympic Stadium, the US Embassy, Bosch and the A.S. Roma football team, just to mention a few. In less than two years more than 200 realities asked us to participate at their events. On top of this, almost 80 volunteers from Rome, Milan and Turin joined the project to help us fighting food waste, contributing both with their professional skills and with their time and energy to collect food excess.
