Dawn Advisory was founded in February 2018 by three students from Bocconi University: Till Hoelzer, Fynn Brinkmann and Yujie Chuah. Passionate about startups and technology, they saw the potential of students in providing business insights to startup founders and thus decided to bridge the gap between university talent and early stage startups.


The Bocconi branch currently has 36 members that either work on one of our three projects supporting startup founders or are undergoing training on one of our four mock projects.
