Why subscribe?

In this newsletter, I will tell you about my experience between Italy and San Francisco as an observer of technology trends, startups, and venture capital. I began traveling to Silicon Valley in 2008; it was love at first sight. Over the years, I understood much more about the highs and lows of this area, but I’m still confident that it’s the best place in the world to start your high-tech company.
