Chiara Rota

Founder, My Cooking Box

Chiara holds a degree in Industrial Engineering obtained with honors at the University of Bergamo, but she has always had a big passion for Italian cuisine with its thousand secrets and traditions. Thanks to the experience achieved working in the supply chain management for national and international companies like Parmalat spa and Radici USA Inc., in 2015 Chiara decided to start a new adventure that would have allowed her to bring her original passion to the top. In that year she founded the startup “My Cooking Box”, developing its activity in the innovative environment of the Bocconi University of Milan. From the beginning the company mission has always been the spread of the best gourmet Italian recipes all over the world providing to customers all the ingredients needed, perfectly-portioned and of first quality.


For the innovative idea of My Cooking Box, Chiara has awarded different prizes such as QVC Next Lab and the Italian Chamber of Commerce innovation award. Furthermore she has been one of the finalists of the Italian Gamma Donna prize and she’s been selected by StartupItalia! as one of the 150 most outstanding women leading a startup.
