Women-led growth equity fund Full In Partners has announced Maurizio de Franciscis has been made Head of Portfolio Success at the firm. Mr. de Franciscis will be responsible for Full In’s operations helping portfolio companies to scale their business and navigating growth issues.
"The addition of Maurizio to the team deepens our commitment to being true partners to entrepreneurs,” said Full In Co-Founder and Managing Director Elodie Dupuy. “When I first met Maurizio in a São Paulo-area Pizza Hut, I was immediately struck by his talent as an operator, thoughtful approach, and longtime experience impacting businesses at the growth stage.
Mr. de Franciscis is an experienced entrepreneur and growth executive, with particular experience leading growth companies. He has acted as an interim executive for several Insight Venture Partners portfolio companies, and moonlights as a coach of professional tennis players.
"I love Full In's approach of helping entrepreneurs identify and overcome the challenges on their path with the help of functional specialists," said Mr. de Franciscis. "Every company is unique, but there is a surprising concentration around the problems they tend to face at the growth stage, and we can help them scale faster and more sustainably."
