Chiara is Programme Manager at PUBLIC, where she runs GovStart and oversees the startup acceleration in the UK. She joined PUBLIC in 2018 as Programme Associate.

Prior to joining PUBLIC, she worked for Hatch Enterprise, an organisation helping get social enterprises and charities off the ground, particularly in the food waste, local employment and mental health space.

Her interest in GovTech and innovation in government started at university: her master thesis was about a number of cases of innovative delivery of public services across healthcare and social care in the UK and while at university she worked in an early stage GovTech startup in the welfare space.

Chiara holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from the University of Genoa, and a Master’s in Public Policy from Universita’ Cattolica in Milan
