Hi, I’m Marco!
I’ve spent my time at university creating opportunities – figuring it out, adapting and multitasking – and I loved the challenge.
In my final year, I was simultaneously reading Physics, relaunching a departmental society and establishing relationships with major banks for an Investment Banking training provider.
Sales, Branding & more – essentially CEO intern
Interested by Investment Banking (IB) last summer, I started cooperating with a group of industry professionals.
Helping them develop their IB interactive-training prototype for both the student market and major banks.
I organised events at unis (e.g. LSE), created a virtual alternative product in response to Covid, hired & onboarded an intern and covered the business development to large banks alongside the CEO. We delivered training to the interns of our first client, a major bank, last month.
Industry team projects
At hackathons I would form a team with people I’d met on the weekend, and tackle challenges in unfamiliar industries (O&G, Finance, Travel, etc) – winning 3 prizes. I’d often be presenting our team’s final product to SVPs and industry experts (from GS, BCG, Accenture, Airbus, etc).
By exploring policy and IR in my own time, I’ve been invited to the largest Mediterranean geopolitics conference and won a foreign policy scholarship to the IMF, World Bank and other top institutions.
Relaunching University Society
Studying at a non-target university means we don’t receive as many Investment Banking (IB) opportunities.
So, this November, I organised an IB workshop. From this, two economics students and I relaunched the then defunct Econ. & Finance Society.
In a matter of months, the society reached the semifinals of a UK uni. competition, organised talks with speakers from GS, VC and PE and hosted a 160 person dinner to rebuild the community.
Working with senior figures
I was the spokesperson for controversial position at University wide referendum and worked closely with the University CFO and Head of Strategy.
