Want to make a difference? MtB is looking for you!

We are growing! As we are preparing for our third year of activities, we proudly look back to what we’ve been doing. Modestly speaking, we have become the most active organization able to select, promote and network the most promising Italian startups in the Silicon Valley.

- Requirements:A recognized leader in the Italian entrepreneurial scene, with sky-high ethical standards, public standing, and a hyper- developed network of relevant contacts. Willing to spend 1 week/Y in Silicon Valley. Based in Italy.

Head of fund raising:
- Activity:coordinate all the fund raising activities. Define sponsorships plan. Strategy and action plan to attract donors. Evaluate long term options (multi-year sponsorship, creation of an endowment). Potentially, build a team.
- Requirements :you know what you’re doing and you are passionate about it.

If you want to be considered for such roles or you are just willing to help change Italy, contact

Hi there. I'm not qualified for any of the position you're offering but I'm willing to help in any way I can. For instance I can meet other companies that are considering MdB and talk with them about my experience of spending 1 month in the valley.
