    Personal profile


    I am a Lecturer in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship within the International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship at Coventry University. My main research interest revolves around the intersection of start-up financing and entrepreneurial marketing.

    A Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM), over a decade I have helped start-ups, charities, SMEs, and Fortune 500 companies across different sectors including FMCG, financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, e-commerce, and fashion.

    Holding an MBA from Durham University (Entrepreneurship route), a journey on which I blogged on the Financial Times, I completed my PhD in Entrepreneurship by focusing on the retail investor behaviour in equity crowdfunding.

    I write weekly columns on an Italian daily on business and society.
