Startup And Innovation Coach, UBS WM Innovation Lab
Alessandro began his professional career at IBM in Switzerland where he was one of the youngest project managers ever hired by the company. He was soon in charge of IT campaigns for clients including Novartis, Nestlé, ABN AMRO, and Sunrise.
At Electronic Arts Mobile in Los Angeles, Alessandro was responsible for creative asset development for gaming brands such as Tetris, Bejeweled, Monopoly, Scrabble, The Sims, and The Game of Life. At the software engineering company CodingCo, which he co-founded, he was in charge of global business development and built international development teams from the ground up.
This allowed the company to produce a variety of mobile application and video game projects for Cartoon Network (South America), the global video game distribution company Glu and Roman Coppola’s The Directors Bureau.
After teaching seminars at industry leaders such as Google and BBDO, Alessandro is currently a startup and innovation coach at the UBS WM Innovation Lab in Zurich where he has been guiding intra- and entrepreneurs to successfully complete agile projects in areas such as virtual and augmented reality, machine learning as well as CRM and web/app development.
