After a long career with General Electric and Honeywell in the IT sector, he was CEO of Telettra, Central Director of Fiat and General Manager of Olivetti. As an entrepreneur, he created Projecta to operate in innovative sectors; in 2015, he published Oltre le occasioni perdute. Dal transistor allo smartphone. 60 anni di storia in presa diretta (Beyond lost opportunities. From the transistor to the smartphone. 60 years of live history) for EGEA in which, as a protagonist and pioneer of Italian IT, he recounted its evolution.

Simone was one of the founders of Kaleyra (formerly Ubiquity), today one of the world’s major players in the CPaaS sector and the only Italian company listed on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange).

The two “Simone Fubini” scholarships will support students in economic need participating in one of Bocconi’s Master of Sciences with a focus on data science, innovation, management.
