LattinaDesign and Thinkalize brand. LattinaDesign is an innovative start-up founded in 2014. In the same year, with the Thinkalize project, we enter Speed MI Up, the Italian accelerator of the most innovative companies, owned by University Bocconi, Chamber of Commerce and Milan’s City Hall. The Thinkalize brand is registered in the European Union. We have been also recognized among the sixty best start-ups, during the Expo 2015 Exhibition Fair. At this point, we launch the beta version of the platform!
Following further market research and new partnerships, the current Thinkalize is launched in August 2017 and receives, in February 2018, the Speed MI Up Startupper Certificate.
We’re a friendly bunch.
One team, many talents. With a culture of collaboration, a hive of talent, and enthusiasm for doing, the Thinkalize team is active in the creative community, endlessly interested in what’s next, and generally pleasant to be around. So don’t be shy, say hi.
Nicoletta Founder & CEO
Nicoletta is one part idealist and another contrarian.
Her goal in life, both through work and play, is to challenge popular belief and push the limits of what's possible.
“I always have a smile on my face and sometimes I like to live and think outside the box... let’s just call it creative chaos”, she says.
About Thinkalize? She loves the passion of the people who work there. “Thinkalize is my smile!”.
When she's not thinkalizing she's most likely biking or organizing surprise parties.
For us, Nicoletta is the enthusiast!
Stefania Marketing Director
When she's not eating ice cream, you'll find her doing yoga or trying to draw or even talking about philosophy.
Curious, persevering and methodical... she also likes serial commas. “I make everything scientifically grounded. Don't settle for a substitute!”, she states
About Thinkalize? “It is a robot of futuristic-intelligence! Thinkalize for me is... WOW!”.
Pizza connoisseur, coffee drinker, sports lover, list maker: For us, Stefania is the one who refuses to accept any standard short of perfection.
Filippo Legal Manager
Filippo disobeyed his parent's wishes by entering the judiciary system: He was a rule breaker, then became a rule maker.
“I’m just that committed that I’m thinking of making tacos for dinner”, he proclaims.
Filippo aspired to be the very best magistrate, like no one else ever before. However, he’s probably one of the nicest men you'll ever meet in Thinkalize.
About Thinkalize? “I recognize its ability to constantly keep up and welcome diversity, just as I do in my life”.
Filippo for us is the surgical precision that we need. We are a bit scared of him, maybe you’ll be too.
Francesco General Manager
While some peole are natural humorists, being funny is a set of skills that Francesco can't learn (despite his attempts). We laugh at his jokes only because he is the Boss! Francesco manages everything. Resolute and determined, he manages his life through goals “even if I could be too much of a schematic person, at times”.
However, “I have to go running, yes, but I'll start tomorrow! I have to go on a diet, yes, but I’ll start tomorrow!”, he plans.
About Thinkalize? “Thinkalize creates and realizes new opportunities: It is the heart that beats, it’s my energy”.
Ok, ok, Francesco... listen, you’re a tough guy but please stop bossing us around.
Lover of eating, drinking, dreaming, hypothetical questions, clouds and, oddly enough, even prototypes. “Also I love to live inside imaginary stories, sometimes confusing them with reality (Oops!)”. That's her personal tagline. It says a lot.
What about Francesca’s hair? Have a look! It’s great, wild, like that of a fantasy storybook character... we would like to know her secret, but no way.
Thinkalize is a magic for her: “It turns creative ideas into incredible things!”. Francesca is the one you wish you could share a drink with or end up wanting to send her back to a fantasy book.
Suki Creative Director
Don’t go with him to an art gallery! He will take silly selfies all the time. Yes, selfies! Don’t ask him how to draw! He will patronize you all the time. Don’t put him and the marketing director at the same drawing board! They will argue all the time. Besides being a movie nerd, Suki is recognized as a design freak, music snob and generally creative individual who finds inspiration through the streets of India or the suburbs of London.
“Designing for the sake of looking good is plastic and fake. Put your heart and soul into everything” (still patronizing us!). Ah, one last thing! If you visit a shop with Suki don't be embarrassed if he touches everything: He loves to feel, to put textures into his design ideas (weird, isn’t it?).
Ele Management Assistant
Don’t say to Eleonora “you are wrong!”: You will probably face a two-hour long, yet useless, full of words, philosophical discourse, with no reason, with no end, where you will be the loser, she will be the winner and …ok stop it!
Do not summon her.
To her, Thinkalize is brilliant and sociable, yet if it was her friend it would be one of those she’d never call “because Thinkalize is all about ideas, so I cannot have a Coke with it!” she confesses.
Eleonora fills her evenings and weekends with friends and dog time, movies, cooking (or getting others to cook for her) but yes, we prefer others' food. Last but not least: She is a writer of novels and we are proud of it!
Roger Projects Director
Word has it that Roger was born with a book for a hand (ouch!). “They are the expression of human ability to communicate in a long-lasting way”. He loves to collect books, but don't let that fool you. Roger is a multitasking man, a multicultural experienced manager, a strategic thinker with an entrepreneurial attitude.
He has a passion for everything (photography, art, painting, family at first... yes, the right-man!). If you can't find him, he's probably in a hammock reading some historical books. Shhhhh... don’t disturb him! Ah, yes: “Thinkalize is young and dynamic, but also ethical and fair. It’s like a reliable person”. Did you expect him to be emotional?
Alberto Web Developer
Alberto lives in Manchester but dreams in a galaxy far, far away... When not developing code - with meticulous precision - he enjoys playing guitar and singing while working in Thinkalize (poor us!).
Open-minded, optimist, minimalist; a producer, a composer, a lover of gigs and live music. The nerd at the cool table. He loves his Bluetooth speaker so much that he has installed an alarm on it... just in case! To Alberto, Thinkalize is a magic box: A hub for creative minds where everything becomes possible. You rock, Alberto!
Germano Financial Director
"Gerry, when we will arrive, we will call you!" - "What? <<When WE ARRIVE>> is the correct form! Oh, little creatures! You cannot distinguish a noun from an adjective, let alone when it comes to verbs. Knowledge is Power!"
Obstinate and kind (apart from when it comes to grammar), his best feature is his logical ability. With a rooted passion for “the fork!” – he is a food lover, a gourmand one – for Germano Thinkalize is “a great idea to believe in.
I always see smiling smiles there and I particularly admire the dialogue and sharing between different mindsets, backgrounds and cultures.” (Dialogue? Exactly! Pay attention to the grammar police, guys.)
Guys of the Thinkalize team saved me from the water bowl I lived in, then Stefania wrote a book about me. Crazy! Here is a part. Send me an email if you want the rest (firstname.lastname@example.org).
"Josh! I will end up not understanding, but on the other hand I warned you: here nothing is easy." I took Josh that day, and pulled him out of the water bowl. "Josh, go for a ride! Today nothing works". He gasped for a while, I made him a paper boat, I pushed him out with a puff of air...
"Why are you looking at me?" I asked Josh, feeling a little stupid, while he was staring at me, gasping from the little boat. With my extreme surprise, I heard him reply "Put me back in the water, it doesn’t look too good, out there".
Leonardo da Vinci Scientist
"I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do." (Leonardo da Vinci, 1452-1519).
For Thinkalize, Leonardo da Vinci has always been a source of inspiration. His genius revealed a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of their time.
We respect his infinite curiosity, feverish imagination and sublime artistic ability. We respect a lifetime spent studying art, science, optics, and every other possible field that he could apply his curiosity to. We respect his influence upon history; after so many centuries of history, one thing's for sure: he was a one of a kind.
Thanks for keeping us inspired, Leonardo da Vinci.
