About Me:
I am one of the founders of BAIA. I work with entrepreneurs and startups and am a strong believer in the value that open networks create as platforms to exchange knowledge and information and do business transparently and ethically. I am originally from Genoa, Italy, where I grew up. I have studied in London and Los Angeles and have been living in San Francisco since 2001. Today I am a corporate attorney in an international law firm (see below for my professional profile). I am married and I have 3 children.

Corriere today on Italy, China and the U.S.: it explains it all

Posted on February 24, 2012 at 11:33am 0 Comments

A mio avviso, la questione della fuga dei cervelli si pone se inquadrata in un'ottica strettamente geografica. Allora si' che e' innegabile affermare che assistiamo ad una migrazione di talento, di imprenditori, ricercatori e studenti verso mete estere che offrono maggiori opportunita'.

I got an email from an Italian lawyer looking to get experience in intellectual property asan intern in the US. I told her to contact BAIA but don't know if she did. Let me know if you are interested and I'll have her contact you directly.
