The founder has distinguished himself already in the modern leather and fashion industries. He is a visionary in this field with his startup, futurist project developing leather innovations such as: The only leather approved for automatic machine wash with detergent, The thinnest leather in the world, Fireproof leather and the extraordinary Bulletproof leather, so far.
He is a native of Romania and based in Amsterdam, and his expertise across a wide range of business environments from event production to international business has caught the attention of industry leaders. Founded in 2018 as a provider of holographic light shows for the entertainment industry, the founder made the fortuitous decision to pivot into fashion in 2020. At this time, the founder also launched his own premiere fashion brand, personally designing a boutique line of leather streetwear for men. With his collection, he was able to partner with the Dutch luxury platform Wonders of Luxury as the exclusive sales channel.
This current startup isn’t the founder first successful foray into the world of start-ups. At the very young age of 22, began his first business based in Bucharest and in partnership with the Dutch investment company Laishoo Group. It was a high-profile event production company that organised events for top international DJs including Faithless and Sander van Doorn, as well as having an exclusive license for the Ministry of Sound in Romania for three years. With this company, he was personally responsible for the contracting and planning of all production elements including stage, sound, lighting, visual effects, security, and important media partnerships such as with the top-ranking Turkish television station Kanal D. Additionally, offstage he was directly engaged in coordinating ticketing, venue and artist bookings, bar service, first aid and, perhaps most importantly, event sponsorship. In this role, he negotiated partnerships with major sponsors including ING Bank who were the main sponsor for one event, Heineken, RedBull, Coca-Cola, Phillip Morris (Marlboro), British American Tobacco (Kent), Chio, DPD (Smirnoff, J&B), and Brown Forman (Jack Daniel’s). In 2012, Laishoo Group bought de founder out and have continued operating as a classical music event producer as the exclusive promoter of Andre Rieu and David Garrett in Romania.
The founder has a track-record of starting, operating, and scaling start-ups with great success. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the Hyperion University Bucharest, Romania with a 3 years Major in International Business, and a Bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management from the National Economic College Craiova, Romania.
