Hi, I'm Francesco,

Thank you for reading this page.


A computer scientist navigating the investment world on a mission to bring seed capital to Deep Tech founders.

Longer version:

I founded Silicon Roundabout Ventures to scale-up my Deep Tech angel investing and bring other investors and asset allocators along the journey.

My way into venture investing was through building Silicon Roundabout into the largest tech meetup community in Europe: where 15,000 engineers, founders and startup operators can connect, learn from one another, and showcase frontier technologies: https://siliconroundabout.tech

If you’d like to pitch me a pre-seed/seed European startup or if you’d like to enquire about future chances to join the fund as an investor, please head over to: https://siliconroundabout.ventures

I run a blog on technology development, deep tech startups and VC: https://theengineervc.com


Before Silicon Roundabout Ventures, I have worked in Computer Science as a CTO, tech lead and software engineer.

I also founded the boutique property investment company AGAPE Properties (1st UK property manager to accept crypto payments).

I love sharing my learnings and beliefs about Deep Tech and Venture Capital through my writing or talk: So far, I held guest lectures, panels and keynotes at London Fintech Week, Frontier Deep Tech, Founder Institute, London Tech Week, The London Institute of Banking and Finance, ASP (Politecnico di Milano), Birmingham Tech Week and the European GNSS Agency amongst others.

I’m a physics, history and business geek and speak English, Italian and Spanish and love anything entrepreneurial or techie.
