Marco Palombi

I am intrigued by stuff that does not have a codified description, yet. As a corollary, my field is not definable, otherwise I would not be interested.

In general, I explore bio-inspired models and computational neuroscience to imagine a new kind of Internet.

Me around the Web:

A short bio:

  • Studied computer science at Harvard University for a semester and received an engineering degree, cum laude, from the University of Naples in Italy.
  • Worked for Procter&Gamble in France, McKinsey in Italy and The Fiat Group in Brazil/Argentina.
  • Let'sTV, my first company, was not a big success, but I learnt a lot from that experience. Let'sTV was acquired by a medium sized company.
  • Tipic Inc., the second company I created, was acquired by the Rizzoli Corriere della Sera Group, one of the largest media companies in Italy. Splinder, the blogging platform that Tipic had developed, was the largest community site in Italy at the time. Tipic was born out of the ideas that I described in this post: The Lonely Net.
  • I was Member of the Board of the Jabber Software Foundation.
  • Along with other Italian entrepreneurs, I created 1generation, a not for profit network with the objective of fostering entrepreneurship in Italy. The network was highly successful at spawning several other projects in the entrepreneurship space. 1generation has since fulfilled its mission.

  • I speak Italian, English, French and Portuguese. I read sci-fi, science, philosophy and economics.

  • I live in London.
