Francesco Rulli is an innovative, tech enthusiast and transformative founder and CEO who leveraged a life-long interest in entrepreneurship, media, fashion, and technology. 

Francesco launched Querlo in 2015 providing a robust environment for “conversational AI” and data performance analytics. Applying proprietary software, Francesco and his team developed tools to improve interactions between customers, employees, and brands. Today, the chatbots employ algorithms that mimic the neural connections of the human brain. An example is the Michelangelo AI, designed in collaboration with the Duomo of Florence, to bring back to life the artist who died over 400 years ago.

Francesco has help several leadership roles in organisations such as the John Malkovich fashion line, and Film Annex, an online film distribution company. The company promoted independent films with revenues generated through a custom ad server and player. The site hosted 300k independent films that reached up to 40 million viewers per month.

Francesco also launched BitLanders, a social media platform with 1 million registered users. An industry leader in gamification, BitLanders has several pending patents, including the content ranking system Buzz Score, and BitMiles, a rewarding system inspired by the Medici family’s double ledger accounting system.

Francesco is a board member of the GMRF, an organization which aids children who have lost the use of limbs or eyes or have been severely burned, injured due to war, natural disaster or illness. Francesco’s philanthropic efforts extend to Afghanistan, where he sponsored the construction of 13 classrooms, providing young women with the tools and opportunities of digital citizenship. This project led to the introduction of Bitcoin payments in 2013.

In 2021, Francesco launched the Patronage NFT platform, a fundraising service and solution for museums and institutions. Patronage NFT, a 28C Partners Company, advise and guide on various fundraising options leveraging the latest technologies associated with NFTs, Immersive Reality and Metaverse. A revolutionary development that promises to unify the arts and sciences with technology, long the dream of an Italian-American born and raised in Florence.

Francesco is a proud father who loves sports and who sails with his family in his spare time.
