Founded as a side project by ex Googler Marco Marinucci, MTB initially focused on developing Italy’s (Marco’s home country) startup ecosystem, building bridges with Silicon Valley.
Marco brings on board a top notch Board of Directors and Alberto Onetti, an Italian university professor with an in-depth startup experience and knowledge of the Silicon Valley ecosystem, as its Chairman.
In five years MTB supports hundreds of startups, runs an incubator in San Francisco and a startup school that produces 50+ entrepreneur graduates per year, and organizes several of events attended by thousands.
Marco quits Google to work full time on MTB and raises a seed investment fund (Mind the Seed).
MTB adds an Angel Investor School and an Intra-preneurship executive program to its program suite.
Mind the Bridge is selected by the European Commission to lead Startup Europe Partnership.
MTB lands the first startup on the Moon.
