Cofounder and Digital Strategist, digital/organizing

Alessandro is a Switzerland-based digital campaigner. He has worked on a number of issue and election campaigns over the years, mastering the craft of digital campaigning and fundraising and helping to raise more than a million Swiss francs for various causes. In 2019, he cofounded digital/organizing, a Swiss campaigning firm specialised in engaging activists, persuading voters, and raising funds using digital strategies and tools. During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, wanting to contribute to overcoming the crisis using his digital campaigning skillset, Alessandro joined forces with two colleagues to launch hilf-jetzt.ch, a nationwide platform set up to organise mutual aid groups in Switzerland.
