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.

Vincent Petrescu

Senior executive with wide experience in everything startup. I was part of startups that failed, a star-up that grew very fast (21 mil in Y3), and in small business in steep decline.  I am a CPA, a CGMA, and a PMI Agile Certified Practitioner.  I am also a dropout: I quit (2012) a PhD program in Management from Aston University – United Kingdom, however I did not quit soon enough so they gave me a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Research and Consultancy. Father of two.

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.

Annemarie van Gogh

I am passionate about legal developments and the way their application can empower business growth.
At Equidam, I take care of everything related to legal and administration.
In my previous experience working in the notarial field, I have developed an eye for detail and a knack for efficient problem solving. I use these traits to ensure our administration and financial operations are carried out in a smooth and organised manner. I hold a LLM degree in Health Law from Erasmus University.

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.

Lotf Belych

I love entrepreneurship, fintech and math for business. I joined Equidam as a business analyst, helping entrepreneurs and founders get their financial projections and pitch-decks on point in order to get the most accurate valuation, and, eventually, a successful fundraising round. I’m on top of analyzing entrepreneurs’ business drivers, be it product pricing, benchmarking intelligence, revenues streams and costs structuring. I’m currently in the final stage of my Master’s degree in International Finance at the university of Lorraine, France. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Finance and Accounting from the National School of Business and Administration in Casablanca, Morocco . I had the opportunity to work in a Financial transactions advisory firm serving Start-ups & SMEs in the Middle East and North Africa which gave me a full understanding of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in those regions. I work in English, French and Arabic.

Viktor Píka

I’m excited about digital innovation and how the Internet transforms our lives and business. I joined Equidam because it doesn’t copy other concepts, but creates something completely new. I’m in charge of marketing to make sure that our technology helps as many companies as possible to compute, understand and negotiate their value, which helps them grow. After living in Czech, Germany and US I moved to the Netherlands where I completed a BA degree in International Business and did video marketing at H1 Webdevelopment and BimBimBikes. This year I’m starting a Master degree in Media Innovation.
