Filippo Lubrano – to cut it short

A Management Engineer, a journalist and a writer: I don’t like standing still, physically but most importantly mentally. I have just one, huge addiction: learning new things. Every day. That’s also why I am a consultant, in particular on 4 main verticals:
  • Automotive

  • Furniture

  • Food

  • Cybersecurity and Blockchain

Structured by 8+ years in a corporate environment, accelerated by the experience in incubators and startup accelerators, I join the two approaches to perform at my best for the companies I work with.
I love Asia and I cherish cultural differences to understand them, preserve them and use them at their best.
