Introducing Giusy Cannone

Americans find her name impossible to pronounce.
The ones that kind of get it, are too embarrassed to say it ("juicy, really??")

It's kind of true. Giusy is part of the new juice @ Mind the Bridge!
Since January, she's been working tirelessly to make sure everything is running smoothly at the Gym, where she's the coordinator.
Giusy's professional experience spans from programs and activities to foster entrepreneurship, research on innovation policies and financing, intellectual property rights and technology management.

Born in Puglia, Giusy is currently doing a Ph.D at Polytechnic University of Turin on Economics and Management of Innovation. Among Giusy's prior professional experience, she spent six months at the Kauffman Foundation working with Kauffman's VP Lesa Mitchell on innovation policies research and on the organizations of programs to advance entrepreneurship in Europe.
In fact, I met her the first time in Kansas City, while visiting The Kauffman Foundation...

Giusy holds a master in Industrial Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Turin, a master in Management Engineering from Polytechnic University of Milan and a diploma from the school of excellence Alta Scuola Politecnica.

Since she moved to California, after a couple of days of assessment she had to make the hardest decision. No more high heals, just flip-flops.
In that cove of hackers as Pier38 is, what else was she supposed to do??

Giusy, welcome to the MTB family!
