Driven by the desire to restore insurance to its original purpose of providing mutual aid for those who need it most, but can afford it least, he founded Democrance in 2015.
Prior to that, Michele worked in strategy and distribution at global insurance powerhouses AXA and MetLife in France, Egypt and the UAE.
Italian by birth, Michele holds a Master in Management / Grande Ecole from ESCP Europe in Paris and MSc in Economics from Turin University. He is also a graduate of Carlos III University in Madrid and City University in London.
Michele is a frequent speaker and contributor to microinsurance, entrepreneurship and social innovation events and publications in the Middle East and worldwide.
