Tracing a path towards growth

Some people often wonder what the future holds. We’ve chosen to write it.

It was a long and incredible journey before INNOVENGER was born. I founded the company in 2018 based on a passion and on many years of experience. Then, I summed up the courage to start this small operation that would drive innovation for large clients with a global footprint. Today, INNOVENGER becomes part of an international network, with more means for greater good. That is to say: Dreams are meant to intimidate you; If they don’t, then you’re not dreaming big enough.

INNOVENGER seeks out the creative mind, the idealist who can work, collaborate, take on challenges and deliver under strict timelines. We are driven by our desire to create and make the world a better place. Our passion fuels the relentless pursuit for innovation and adventure. At INNOVENGER , we listen first, and then we engage in deep collaboration / conversations to work towards a common goal and to generate unparalleled value based on our collective experience.


I founded INNOVENGER on the principle that skills and experience, applied within structured frameworks or methodology, will shine at their full potential when red tape has been cut out of the equation, and only passion remains as the key driver. I bring over 25 years of consulting experience, where I have led complex programs and initiatives that have taken the global stage particularly in the Retail, Fashion and Consumer Goods sectors, with a wide and varied coverage of IT, Digital, Commerce and Business Process complexities.
In parallel to this, Nembrini Consulting, a pre-eminent consulting firm headquartered in Switzerland, had started to expand abroad while growing its team to over 100 global consultants.. At its core, Nembrini Consulting offered us precisely what we had been seeking to grow INNOVENGER : a team of like-minded altruistic people from all walks of life; some bringing experience from elite consulting firms or the C-levels; others who are simply just great entrepreneurs or thought-leaders.

Nembrini Consulting has been serving Europe at large, including the Middle East, and with the recent opening of its Indian subsidiary, the company increased its scaling capacity to better serve clients and partners.


INNOVENGER and Nembrini Consulting share a common vision of the future that is grounded in the same values and driven by passion – resulting in a team that is better scaled for greater challenges.

Given all of the above, we could easily see that this partnership was a match made in heaven for greater growth from both entities:

  • INNOVENGER  takes on leadership for operations in Italy (as well as the new Martech offering and “”, the iconic Marketplace to be launched in 2023)
  • Nembrini Consulting SA further expand its international network, getting advantage of the extended coverage

What binds us, is that we are all top performers with an altruistic core. We put People first, and we go above and beyond expectations – for our clients, our partners, and our teammates.

We are PASSIONATE, we are CREATIVE, we are INNOVATIVE, we are INNOVENGER and Nembrini Consulting.
We are greater than the sum of our parts.

We are well-connected, and thus we’re also incredibly agile to fulfil demand in very short cycle times.


So back to the initial question: What exactly does the future hold? I am keeping my role as CEO for INNOVENGER , as I join the international leadership group of the network. Together we will write this next chapter, and I am proud for the role that I take in it, and pleased to be joined by this fantastic team. I look forward to the ambitious growth plan that we have in front of us…

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who actually do."


The first part of this article was written before of the “closing” that marked the change of pace for INNOVENGER with the entry of Nembrini Consulting into the shareholding structure.

Less than one year is passed by, INNOVENGER has just closed a fiscal year of great growth and yet we are about to change again, but let’s proceed in an orderly manner…

Certainly, we are on the right path, or rather on the one we want to follow, with some goals achieved and others still structurally in progress: if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough >> we are confident that we will still make many mistakes but not the one of thinking too small.

Various positive aspects, starting with the mission and above all its implementation in our engagement and business model.


In summary, the good intentions for the new year 2024 basically include 3 main directions:

  • Continue the good work we are doing in the Digital / Innovation area, both in terms of solutions and clients and partners – we like to be ARCHITECT (and we are good at).
  • Extend our credibility/presence to areas related to Cyber Security, in its broadest sense: for this, we are equipping ourselves through organic growth and not only, starting from the certification of some internal resources with “adjacent” technological skills, to a plan for targeted hiring and especially to structural agreements.
  • In both areas, we would like to expand our customer base, including the public sector as well and confirming ourselves as a qualified interlocutor at 360 degrees for Digital Transformation projects (potentially PSN-PNRR linked). 

Instrumental to these directions, and on the basis of the social responsibility that characterizes us, we would like to work on the creation of a university spin-off that allows us to further accelerate the path of growth
(there are discussions in progress with a couple of university hubs).


  • Some implications of the paths we have undertaken have suggested that INNOVENGER has returned to being a completely independent company with capital entirely owned in Italy, with the consolidation of Italian shareholders and the entry of new shareholders linked to the extension of the technological offer profile towards Cyber Security.
  • The ongoing activities and characteristics of INNOVENGER have also allowed the acquisition of the status of “PMI Innovativa” (in progress – Innovative medium size company) which well reflects our modus operandi.
  • However, not wanting to lose the internationality that has always characterized us, Nembrini Consulting (a Swiss law firm) remains the reference partner of our international network.
  • All this allows us to proactively approach the theme of university spin-offs with the social responsibility that characterizes us.
