He was already building web sites for small companies while at school and had his first entrepreneurial bug with his first company Brentstar at the age of 22. He later founded Hyperbidder, an Online Advertising Exchange Network, with thousands of Publishers from all over the world with NBC/Universal as one of its earliest clients. He also dipped his toe in the Blockchain space with JEXOS where he put his prior experience to work with his co-founder Kishor Patil to come up with a solution that can make Online Advertising more transparent and the payment processing much faster. While working for a payment solution for JEXOS, Giorgio and his Team came up with a more interesting concept that is perfect for FIAT payments. Thus, a superior system was born; PayLuft, a revolutionary payment system that requires no wallet, no phone, no cash, no credit card to make payments.
