Luigi Congedo

I am a connector, learner, mentor, global citizen, startup builder, in love with the future and passionate about soccer.

In my previous life I worked at Samsung, AngelHack and RadiumOne contributing to the international development and new market expansions. I also launched a pharmaceutical e-commerce company in Italy,

I am responsible for BootstrapLabs’ deal-flow screening, marcom, community engagement and portfolio support, where I actively advise the founders of BootstrapLabs’ portfolio.

My favorite part of my job is… being at the forefront of the latest technology innovations and helping founders to execute on their vision.

“BootstrapLabs founders are very passionate about solving big problems and extremely concrete at realizing their dreams.”

I also lead the organization of the annual Applied AI Conference bringing together over 800 AI leaders and I am a frequent speaker and mentor at different startup programs and events. I was nominated by Forbes as one of the Top 100 Italian leaders under 30.

“The future depends on Inspiration, Motivation and Action… “

I think AI will… is here to stay, and will help us to shape a more efficient world. AI will release humans from boring, dangerous and repetitive tasks. The adaptation of AI in our society will elevate humanity, and help us to democratizing access to education, healthcare, reduce the cost of food and improve access to many others fundamental resources.

Some advice I can share with other entrepreneurs… “Be in love with your team and never get in love with you idea. 90% of the success depends on execution, and executing solo will be very hard.”
