Riccardo Galli

Co-founder @Meritocracy

I am deeply passionate of big challenges and I'm convinced that the best way we have in our hands to face them is technology. I earned an MSc in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University spending part of my college time at Cornell University (Ithaca, New York) and NHH (Bergen, Norway). Yes, I do love cold cities. During my studies my passion drove me in joining the most active students' association within Bocconi University and organize more than 15 conferences. I discussed a thesis demonstrating how freedom of press makes people less willing to rely on Government for redistributive purposes. I started my career working at Citibank, I then co-founded Meritocracy with the ultimate aim of nullifying the waste of talent. At Meritocracy we develop a technology that highlights the right job-seekers to companies, matching their preferences and philosophy. To do that we base on recruiters' recurring behavior and relevant success cases. We don't believe there exist better or worse people, we believe there are better opportunity to grow and contribute for certain people, in certain contexts, at a certain point in time. We deeply invest in image and employer branding for the companies we work with because work is a relevant part of life and life must be beautiful.
