Luigi has been involved in F&B full time since he graduated from Georgetown University with a double degree in Business Management and Anthropology. He started his career in the Trade Marketing division of Campari America. He left Campari to bring his Italian dairy family business to the United States and to develop new brands, sales and marketing strategies to grow the subsidiary effectively and at a fast pace in a new market. He built the team and designed operational best practices and procedures. This experience allowed Luigi to learn how to work with small dynamic and flexible teams, and develop a ‘startup’ operation into a more structured company, with all the pleasures and hurdles that come with it.
Luigi has always been passionate about new food trends and has closely followed the foodtech sector for years. He is an active Angel Investor since 2018, having invested in companies such as Bella & Bona, The Meatless Farm and Tiny Organics.
