Alessandro Iacono (Switzerland)


Alessandro is a Switzerland-based digital campaigner. He has worked on several issue and election campaigns over the past years, mastering the craft of digital campaigning and fundraising, helping to raise more than a million Swiss francs for various causes. In 2019, he co-founded digital/organizing, a Swiss campaigning firm specialized in engaging activists, persuading voters and raising funds using digital strategies and tools. During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alessandro joined forces with two colleagues to launch hilf-jetzt.ch, a nationwide platform set up to organize mutual aid groups in Switzerland. The three were looking for contributing their digital campaigning skillset to play a role in overcoming this crisis.
