Matteo is passionate about bending the current linear economic model into a shape as close to a circle as possible, to reduce humanity's impact on Earth's life-supporting systems. Having lived and worked in several Asian countries, Matteo has experienced first-hand the urgency to accelerate the transition to a more equal, inclusive, and sustainable economic system and strengthen such transition by supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in circularity.
In his current role as Director of Operations at SecondMuse Singapore, Matteo supports the development and implementation of The Incubator Network (TIN). TIN promotes innovation in technology, business models, regulation, and positive social impact to prevent ocean plastic pollution in South and Southeast Asia.
Matteo is an investor, advisor and board member for several startups. He is a mentor with the German Accelerator Southeast Asia and the Singapore International Foundation's Young Social Entrepreneurs program, among others.
Matteo holds a Master in Sustainability at Harvard Extension School, an MBA at Boston University, and an MS in aeronautical engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
