Alessandro De Grandi
CEO – FOUNDER
He founded his first startup at the age of 18, “Esaplanet, the cash & carry of IT services.” With Esaplanet’s 2010 exit, Alessandro finances other startup projects. A passionate technology expert, his background as a developer led him to become one of the five TIM Digital Ambassadors in Italy in 2018. High-level collaborations with corp such as Microsoft, Axa, Generali, Sky and Carrefour. In 2015 he realizes he can revolutionize the use of the web by integrating it with virtual and augmented reality systems – and that idea gave birth to The Nemesis project.
CSO – FOUNDER
A serial and visionary entrepreneur, through his work he aims at contributing to a better future and is determined to achieve this goal. Few but clear convictions led Riccardo, when he was only 20 years and the word startup did not exist yet, to found his first company, in the name of a mantra that has always accompanied him: “behind every great idea there is always a great mind, but it is only through shared work and combined skills that a great idea can turn into a great project”.
