Daniel Faloppa

I believe in the transformational power that innovation can have on society. At Equidam, I try to bring as much value as possible to the companies that use it, so they can make the right choices, and bring even more innovation to the world.
I am a regular speaker at the Rotterdam School of Management as well as a published author of “The Fintech Book”. I am also a coder since a young age and a passionate designer.
I completed my MSc in Finance from the Rotterdam School of Management cum Laude and took part in the Honours Programme.

Giulia Girardi

I believe in challenging the status quo in order to have a positive and meaningful impact on our society. 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. After living in Canada, Germany, India and Italy – where I co-founded a startup that failed, I moved to the Netherlands and joined BimBimBikes as COO, right in time to kickoff its growth. I hold a cum laude MSc degree in Marketing Management from Bocconi University.

Francesco Contin

I believe in the power of data and in the difference it can make in our everyday lives when properly analysed and explained. I joined Equidam to bring clarity to the private market as a way to fight its inefficiencies caused by lack of information. Previously, I was responsible for data extraction and quality at Porsche Financial Services and worked in All You Need Is Data bringing data science solutions to startups. I hold a MSc degree in Statistics and Mathematics, obtained cum Laude, from the University of Padua, KU Leuven, and RU Groningen.

Moritz Pill

I believe in change and our ability to influence it in ourselves as well as in others for a greater good. At Equidam I combine my passion for entrepreneurship with my experience in finance to help startups determine their value. My career in finance started at a big four accounting firm, from which I moved on to the credit management department of a multinational corporation before finally transferring into the startup world. I hold an MSc degree in Strategic Entrepreneurship, obtained cum laude, from The Rotterdam School of Management and a BSc degree in Finance and Business from The George Washington University and University of Sussex.

Luca Trevisan

I believe in knowledge as the best and most durable way to empower people. I joined Equidam to share my experience with entrepreneurs and innovators, raising their financial awareness and enabling them to master the numbers underpinning their stories. My background includes co-founding and being the CFO of a startup that raised multiple rounds, a master’s degree in finance at the University of Padua, and a diploma in Humanities at the Galilean School of
Higher Education.

Fabian Apel

I believe that young companies in particular hold the potential for the greatest positive impact in tomorrow’s futures. Here at Equidam, I am able to help facilitate start-ups in achieving their potential through dismantling the complexities and high costs required in preparation for seeking capital. I had an internship with Daimler in software development after high-school and during my later studies was in involved in projects such as the Sustainable Business Plan Case with Rabobank. I hold a Master in Finance and Investments as well as a Bachelor in International Business Administration from the Rotterdam School of Management.
