    Giulia Girardi

    contributor

    I believe in challenging the status quo in order to have a positive and meaningful impact on our society. After living in Canada, Germany, India and Italy – where I co-founded a startup that failed, I moved to the Netherlands and worked in BimBimBikes as COO, right in time to kickoff its growth. I joined Equidam because it doesn’t passively adopt the rules of the private valuation market, but saw inefficiency and developed a technology to improve them. By working on marketing and growth, I ensure that we continuously go above and beyond to create value for all companies that deal with valuation.
