Matteo sold his first products online in 2004. Back then selling online was something weird, but even then he was doing Online Arbitrage: finding opportunities of products that were available for great prices in one place and could be sold somewhere else.
In 2006 Matteo was a digital nomad, traveling around the world and working from internet cafés in Europe and Asia. However he didn’t know how to turn this into a real business, so he went to work for a multinational company for many years.
In 2010 he quit his job after reading “The 4-Hour Workweek” and founded an Ecommerce business, primarily as a lifestyle business.
He scaled it quickly to 1M in revenue but then got stuck for many years with scaling it further.
Later, in 2020 when the company started hiring top talents, it quickly grew 200% a year every year. And it has been 3X in 3 years in a row now, reaching 8 figures.
