Meet Your.MD’s Leadership Team

21 July 2020 in Company

Trust means you rely on someone else to do the right thing. When you use Your.MD, you’re relying on our team to have put together the safest and best quality product they can achieve.

But you can’t trust someone you don’t know.

Here is a brief introduction to the leadership team building the world’s most personal, safe and reliable health information service for 1 billion people around the globe.

Matteo Berlucchi

First up is Matteo Berlucchi, our co-founder and serial entrepreneur, who has developed a knack of being first to deliver digital innovation in new consumer sectors. Prior to co-founding Your.MD he was the founder and CEO of aNobii, the world’s first ‘social ebook’ platform sold to Sainsbury’s.

Matteo launched the first internet property website in the world, pioneered live streaming on mobile phones with Livestation and partnered with Microsoft to redefine push notifications globally with Skinkers. As a theoretical physicist, he brings scientific rigour to our work and Italian flair.
