Alfonso Catone

Born in 1995, my family has humble origins: e.g., I’ve been the first one to get a University degree. My journey as entrepreneur started at 21 when I fell in love with the concept of Junior Enterprises: NGOs whose mission is to foster youth entrepreneurship through projects done for companies. In 2016 I cofounded a Junior Enterprise in Florence and in 2017 I was elected as VP of Junior Enterprise Europe, representing 33.000 students. After 2 years abroad, in Italy I started my career as an intrapreneur: before in tech-consulting working on R&D projects and since 2020 in payments. In my career I’ve had two fils rouge: learning & sharing. In fact, while I became an MBA graduate in April 2021, I’ve also started my experience as Startup Mentor.
