Chiara Pennasi

General Director

Fondazione Triulza

What do you do?

I am the director of Fondazione Triulza. I oversee the economic and financial management, the internal organisation of people’s work, relations with partners and founders, and new projects. In particular, I focus on two areas of strategic action: social innovation and community engagement.

What are the goals of your commitment?

First of all, ensuring the operational running of the Fondazione, based on the quality of the working environment that must enhance the specific characteristics of the employees. Much of my time is devoted to securing the economic and financial resources necessary for the sustainability of the Fondazione. One of the most interesting parts of my job is networking with founders and partners to build new projects and activities together. It’s in the interaction between different backgrounds that genuine opportunities to innovate and build innovative models of development arise.

What role does innovation play in your job?

Innovation has always played an important role. I graduated from Bocconi with a dissertation on regional innovation systems. Fondazione is in MIND to stay at the forefront of innovation and do new things for society. Our social tech project experiments with a process of immersion in the ecosystem of MIND, dedicated to companies with social and environmental impact. This can inspire the new social economy that is developing at the European level.

A bit of creative, dynamic and generative chaos. And an organised process of development and growth

What added value have you received or would you like to receive from your presence in MIND?

Certainly, the possibility to interact and work with very different players, as well as the opportunity to imagine and experiment with new solutions and models aimed at improving the lives of people and their environment.

How do you imagine the future of MIND?

A bit of creative, dynamic and generative chaos, accompanied by an organised process of development and growth. A space that is filled with different cultures, innovations and human experiences.
