As a Senior Advisor, Paolo supports companies and Private Equity funds both as a freelancer and in collaboration with national and international advisory firms.
Speedster Consulting is a trusted partner for SMEs, family businesses, entrepreneurs and Private Equity funds that are about to face the acquisition or disposal of companies, businesses or business units. The strategic motivations behind this type of operation are many. There may be the desire to plan a generational changeover, to explore new markets, to diversify risk or to create value for one’s own business. Whatever the specific case may be, the aim of Speedster Consulting is to work side by side with its clients and support them in every phase of the operation both from a technical and personal point of view.
