ABOUT THE MEETUP
In this meetup, Andrea Saltarello, CTO at Managed Designs, will talk about his adventure as a CTO in different companies in which he worked or that he founded
Among case studies, lessons learnt and anecdotes he will tell us his story, explaining why, after a lot of years, he is still strongly persuaded in doing this fascinating and challenging job.
The event will be a moment of networking in which participants will be able to draw inspiration from Andrea’s story but also to share their own experience and aspiration that make them want to become CTO.

ABOUT THE TECH LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM
The 10-week program is designed to help developers in their journey to become CTO of startups, combining strong interpersonal and influential skills along with an empathic ear.
The purpose of this initiative is to offer developers a tool to speed up the path to become CTO, but it doesn’t want to replace this path.
The program consists of 3 modules and a 2-day bootcamp and lasts 3 months, from April to June. To give the greatest possible number of experienced Italian developers the opportunity to participate, the course consists of both online training and physical meetups in Rome and Milan.
Each module will represent an opportunity to focus on specific aspects of the role of the CTO, with
- video to go through thematic insights
- online moment of Q&A
- meetup in Rome and Milan with inspirational and successful CTO
Module 1: Defining the CTO Role
