Hi, I'mĀ Alessio!

Thoughts on technology, early-stage startups, sports, games, who knows... glhf


I'm currently a Principal at 645 Ventures, where I invest in software infrastructure (including crypto), dev tools and security. I previously led engineering at a few different startups, founded my own, played competitive Halo and Call of Duty, was involved in the Pro Evolution Soccer modding scene, and a lot more stuff. Always happy to chat with folks with similar interests! You can find me at afanelli [at] 645ventures.com, or @FanaHOVA on Twitter.
