About Sergio

I am 100% Italian, not only "genetically". Italian is my first language (yes, I have an accent) and I am very "connected" with my culture. I was born, grew up and went to college in Sicily and came to the US for the first time in '89. I am social, very well educated and with a successful professional life.

Education is extremely important to me as I value any kind of "knowledge" very highly. A good education is indispensable for any kind of successful professional life. I hold an MBA in Management and Marketing from San Diego State University, and a PhD in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of Oregon. I am a highly energetic and self-motivated with exceptional problem-solving, interpersonal and communication skills.

I am an accomplished, dynamic business professional with entrepreneurial drive. I possess a unique combination of strong advanced technical background with business acumen developed over my 25+ years of professional experience in Life Sciences, Genomics, Drug Discovery & Development, Medical Devices, Clinical Diagnostics, etc.

I am a highly active Investor with Tech Coast Angels (TCA), one of the largest and most active networks of angel investors in the US. I am the President & Chairman of the Board of TCA San Diego as well as a Member of the TCA Board of Governors. I am also a Member of the Board (Observer) of Savara Pharmaceuticals and Anabios Corp.

I currently manage a highly-diversified investment portfolio of private companies across multiple industries, including Drug Discovery & Development, Medical Devices, Clinical Diagnostics, High-Tech, Software, Social Media, and Digital Marketing. Current INVESTMENTS: Events.com, Astute Medical, Infobionic, Savara Pharmaceuticals, Edico Genome, Mogl, Cloudbeds, Daylight Solutions, Groundmetrics, Avaxia Biologics, Gemmus Pharma, Respiratory Motion, Anabios, Virtualmetrix, Kalyra Pharma, Pediatric Bioscience, Rock My World, Enmotus, Take Lessons, Posiba. Deal Current, Yapert. EXITS: ecoATM.

I was member of the executive management team at NextBio, where I played a key role in the identification and execution of new strategic opportunities. Before NextBio, I was Marketing Group Manager at Millipore, where I lead the development and execution of eBusiness strategies, covering a portfolio of about 25,000 Life Sciences products accounting for $700 million in total revenues. I also held a number of Business Development, Marketing and R&D roles at Invitrogen and BD Biosciences Clontech. I also initiated and led a collaboration with Xeotron Corp., which resulted in the full acquisition of the company by Invitrogen in 2004.

I am a people person and enjoy sharing my knowledge. I enjoy working with kids very much as they are very honest and genuine. Feel free to reach out anytime. I am very approachable and flexible.
