Alessandro Cordova

Ph.D. & Entrepreneur

After his Bsc in Economics summa cum laude at Bocconi University and a Msc at the London School of Economics, he obtains his PhD in Business Administration specializing in startups. In 2014 he launches his first startup, Visitami, which is sold to a larger digital healthcare corporation years after. In 2016 he decides to share his experience with wanna-be entrepreneurs through The Startup Training, which he had the pleasure to present in a seminar at Harvard Business School. In 2017 he cofounds his third startup, Inkdome, financed by LVenture Group, the most active seed fund in Europe. Today he is the shareholder of many startups across industries and continues to cultivate the dream the largest startup pre-accelerator in the world.


After years as a startupper I have understood this is the most difficult job in the world. To win you need to have all the support you may get, relying on people who believe in you and can be of help in the moment of need all along.

From this belief, I gave birth to The Startup Training, a group of startupper who give back what they learnt to whom wants to launch his/her venture at maximum speed and get to the investors in their best shape possible.
