Assia Grazioli-Venier is a media executive, angel investor and advisor to high-growth tech startups, entertainment companies and venture capital firms. Things don't always end up the way you want them to. A continuing battle with dyslexia, a serious accident and loves lost are just a few of the hardships that taught Assia that it is possible to turn obstacles in opportunities by being yourself and doing what you truly love. She has learned not to resist disruption, but to embrace the unexpected. And, of course, to never take no for an answer.
