Peekaboo was born from the meeting of startuppers, entrepreneurs and innovators to respond to a very simple need: help people who have an idea turn it into reality, quickly, effectively and practically.

We were first startuppers and this is why we know how hard and complex the path of transforming an idea into a product or business really is.

We looked at the market and ecosystem and realized that all we wanted was a place where founders, mentors, investors and innovation enthusiasts could pool their experience, know-how and best methodologies, to become an powerful engine for Italian innovation, just like in Silicon Valley.

And we made it happen.

Paolo Napolitano

CEO

My goal is to help future entrepreneurs to realize their ideas and turn them into successful ones
Graduated in Management Engineering, after 4 years in a strategic consulting firm specializing in the management of innovation projects, I left my job to devote myself full time to my startups.
Since then I have founded several startups: two of them failed.But from the failures I learned the best lessons. And like a phoenix rising from the ashes, it was from these failures that Peekaboo was born. With the mission to support the birth and growth of new innovative and sustainable business models. And the vision to make live the “founder experience” to anyone who wants to contribute to the construction of a better world.
That’s why in 2015 Peekaboo was born, of which I am the CEO.

Federico Belli

COO

Sono un imprenditore digitale che lavora nella scena tecnologica da quando aveva 18 anni. Durante gli studi ho co-fondato un servizio di advertsing per la ristorazione e una web agency, e dopo la laurea ho avviato Peekaboo con l’obiettivo di aiutare startup e corporate a portare sul mercato progetti sperimentali. Negli ultimi 6 anni grazie a Peekaboo ho fatto esperienze meravigliose sia nel campo del venture business che della corporate entrepreneurship. Da 2 anni sono account manager presso Enel, a supporto del team di Open Innovation.

Federico Rosati

CTO

I'm a multi-disciplinary designer working as a UI/UX Specialist, Interaction Designer and Front-End Developer, all acronyms and strange names that simply stand for that I design and develop digital products. I like to make things that seem seem difficult easy. If you need to validate an idea of yours in record time, I'm probably the right person!

Mirko Carnevale

CMO

10+ years of experience in marketing, corporate communication and business strategies.
I've held managerial roles in the sales and marketing departments of some of the largest Italian advertising companies, dealing with innovation and product management (especially SaaS solutions for SME's digital marketing), execution of marketing campaigns for key customers and training and development of the sales force.
However, I am still a passionate startupper and serial entrepreneur, constantly looking for new interesting projects. This is my way of pursuing the dream of being able to contribute in the creation of exceptional products that can truly improve people's lives

Eleonora Sette

Innovation Project Manager

After completing my Bachelor Degree and Master abroad and having collected invaluable experiences in England and France, in 2018 I decided to move back to Italy and give my contribution to the growth of the Italian entrepreneurship. The experience I gained working at Plug and Play Italy, one of the largest open innovation platform in the world, led me to developing a greater interest in startups and determined my decisione to join the Peekaboo and help shape the entrepreneurial mindset from zero to one!
I am a resourceful and reliable person, determined and analytical, able to evaluate and manage every situation through established problem-solving skills. I apply all my skills and abilities in the development and management of our Programs and our Black Pearl Platform.

Federica Ferrari

Innovation Project Manager

Laurea in Economia, da sempre con la passione per la scoperta del mondo, continuo la mia carriera accademica con un Master in International Management che mi porta a studiare all’estero, prima in Francia e poi in Brasile. È proprio in Brasile che entro in contatto con l’ecosistema delle startup e dell’innovazione, rimanendone affascinata. Tornata in Italia, inizio la mia carriera in un’azienda che offre programmi di accelerazione per startup per poi, un anno fa, fare la conoscenza di Peekaboo ed entrare ufficialmente nel team.
Ad Oggi, lavoro come consulente dell’innovazione presso Enel, offrendo le mie conoscenze e professionalità al team di Open Innovation.

Brand & Graphic designer. Comunico visivamente l'identità di Peekaboo, la rendo tangibile attraverso la grafica.

per comunicare un messaggio o un'idea. Creatività, precisione e sintesi sono i miei tool preferiti!
