With +10 years of international experience across academia, corporate innovation and startups, I have learned what attracts young talent and compels them to stay in a company. That’s why in 2020 I founded The Rebel Company, the Employer Branding agency helping startups attract young graduates thanks to outstanding job descriptions. I also mentor startups and offer career advice for students at the University of Trento. During the week you will easily find me at Pilates training or co-working at Impact Hub Zurich. Married to a Googler, I’ve been in this extraordinary Zurich life since 2018.
