Giuseppe Sacco on Superpeer
Uplifting people and economies through entrepreneurship
I'm the co-founder of italist.com, the leading platform to discover over 1,000 of the world's best luxury brands at the best price in the market. I was born in Sicily into a family of clothing merchants, and my parents have fifteen boutiques in Italy. At 19 I moved to Milan where I obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Business Administration at Universitá Bocconi, Italy’s best business university. During my studies, I worked in finance in some of the most important banks in the world (such as Lazard and Deutsche Bank) and I taught finance at Bocconi for two years following. At 25 I decided to take on the italist challenge; it was a bit like continuing the work of my parents in a modern way, from the physical store to the online store, bringing the selection of the best Italian buyers to the world at the Italian retail price. We received an investment from 500 Startups, the most important accelerator in Silicon Walley, so I moved to Los Angeles in 2018.
