New Trends are coming and will change everything

The pandemic has impacted all areas of our life. The way we work, travel, commute, interact and last but not least date.

Lockdowns, social distancing and self-isolation have made online dating even more frustrating than it used to be. Awkward first dates with strangers became even more awkward mobile virtual dates.

Ghosting did not seem that bad anymore or at least not as bad as catching Covid from the guy that after half an hour into the date told you that the Corona Virus was created by Bill Gates into a Lab to control humankind.

The virtual office is coming and will change everything

The term metaverse refers to a virtual shared space where people can work, interact and play together in a 3D virtual world that uses augmented reality, fast internet connection, and AI. It comes from “meta” (beyond) and “universe”. Neal Stephenson coined this word in the 1992 novel Snow Crash where he described an enhanced, paradise version of Earth that offered people an escape from the struggles of real life.

Before the pandemic, spending most of the day online was something reserved for videogames-obsessed people. However, the Covid-19 health crisis completely shifted the paradigm of online interactions forcing billions of people…


Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google market shares explained

Every day hundreds of new technology companies are founded by bright entrepreneurs and funded by optimistic Venture Capitalists.

Although there have been many success stories (and many more failures), no one has been able to take over Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google dominant positions in their respective markets.

These tech giants are worth together $4tn (£3.1tn) and each of these companies hold a large percentage of the market in their specific sectors.

Nope, it's not luck.

There are a number of structural reasons for the digital markets being highly concentrated, in industrial economics, these are defined as market failures.


Or at least why you should first do your homeworks

In the last few days, BrewDog, the proudly UK-Based beer brand has received several allegations in an open letter signed by several former employees.

In particular, the letter goes on for over three pages about the toxic and misogynistic environment in the company, the executives bypassing customs to get the beer delivered quicker and the fear and anxiety that all employees were experiencing when working for BrewDog.

This was quite of a shock for me, as I am (or at least I was) a big fan of their beer as well as of their company’s efforts in employees well-being, sustainability…


Why You Should Never Let Anyone Convince You Can’t Do Something

I recently got my first writing customer, a UK based Startup that hired me as a writer to post on their company’s websites twice a month. They approached me directly because they read some of my work and thought it was very good.

The satisfaction of being recognised as a good writer brought me back to my first job in Management Consulting in London, fresh out of a Master Degree.

A bit of context.

This was my first experience in the corporate world, English is my second language and having studied outside England, I didn’t really have any experience writing…


Why not paying your interns results in more money being spent than being saved.

This may shock you but interns also eat, live, pay bills, insurance and all the other normal stuff you can expect a normal adult to have to worry about.

How great would it be if all of this could be paid by the “once in a lifetime experience” you are offering to your unpaid workforce?

However, I am pretty sure that Prett does not allow Experience to be used for a morning Latte. Maybe one day, who knows.

Also, I am quite positive that if you ask your doctor to see you for free because he is getting the “once…


AI has the potential to become better than humans at all cognitive task and we cannot predict how it will behave

If you read the title of this article, you may think that I am a Dystopian weirdo who believes innovation and technology are evil and robots will destroy the human race.

Nope, I love everything related to Technology and Artificial Intelligence. I am passionate about Deep Tech and in my work in Venture Capital, I primarily advise and work with innovative companies.

Nevertheless, I am scared. And top technology practitioners including Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, Bill Gates are as well. Let me explain why.

Where we are today: Weak AI

We currently are in the infancy of the Artificial Intelligence revolution. …


What I learned about myself and the Leader I want to be

Thanks for reading this! If you find this helpful and you want to read more of my content please consider follow me and my publication: https://medium.com/mba-chronicles Thanks!

I recently finished a six months Leadership course. Before that, although I had worked for a number of years in the corporate world, I had spent little time developing my leadership skills.

During the first session, Leadership was defined as:

“being conscious and intentional about the impact we have on ourselves, our relationships and the social systems we are part of”.

This is often overlooked in the corporate world where people focus on…
