Alessia Cappello winking portrait by Brian Hallet for Inside Out Project IE University

Ciao! I'm Alessia,

I’m Italian, bilingual English and fluent in Spanish. Currently based in Madrid (Spain), I’m a digital marketer by day, Mentor at IE University by night, and passionate about the intersection between technology and culture in between.

As Head of Special Projects, I'm a jack of all trades and dabble day by day with projects from ideation to management and budgeting.
As a mentor to students attending the Master in Visual and Digital Media at IE University, where I coach students on:

  • Time Management, 
  • Personal Knowledge Management, 
  • Networking Online
  • and more…

I am well known for my determination and the ability to make what seem to be complex and impossible to achieve real, you could call me a solution seeker. 

Want a sneak peek of what I am capable of? Well, as a Masters student I pitched, persuaded and managed to get support (and financed) by IE University to take part in a global artistic action that led to plastering the main building of the institution with gigantic portraits of students, alumni, faculty and staff. Below you’ll see a video of this notable accomplishment.

If you wish to know more about my professional career, LinkedIn would be the best place to do so, if you wish for me to consult you, or your business, you can contact me directly.

This site hosts all of my writing on digital marketing, entrepreneurship, networking, economics and more. You will also find my Book Notes and all the projects I have worked on.

If you are a curious mind, you should sign up to The Spark. It's a weekly email which includes everything I have found interesting.

In 2017 I was one of the chosen participants of Bocconi StartUp Day, where I had the chance to present my startup idea: Seekety, which aims to connect the art and culture world to the digital world, to potential investors, mentors and accelerators.
