Has participated in the foundation and the strategic direction of several companies, including Tinext, founded together with other partners in 2001.

"When I founded Tinext along with some esteemed colleagues and friends I knew I didn't want a simple Internet company, but a technological reality able to renew itself constantly: flexibility, innovation, responsiveness at the European and international context" – says Bruno Giussani. “Today that the company has grown up and I am far from operations, I keep on bringing these values in regular meetings with the board as Vice-Chairman".

Recently, Bruno Giussani was named by Wired UK among the 100 most influential people in Europe.

"For me it is a privilege and a pleasure to benefit from the dabate with Bruno and from his contribution to Tinext board as an advisor" - says Stefano Zoia, Tinext CEO since 2013. “His global vision and his cross-cutting, multidisciplinary ideas focused on innovation help us to keep the focus on the main objective of our work: allow our clients to answer effectively to individual needs of digital consumers, simplifying and enriching the experience of companies at every stage of the relationship with their customers”.
