“It all started with a Phd dropout”
BigProfiles was born in 2016 when our CEO, Lorenzo Luce, was pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at Roma Tre University, in Rome. Lorenzo aimed at developing an algorithm to trace publicly available information about a person from several sources guaranteeing total reliability of each associated piece of information. The business idea was born at the end of 2016 when Roberto Visceglia, a Finance graduate student at LUISS University in Rome and long-lasting friend of Lorenzo, got involved in the project. Together, Lorenzo and Roberto, undertook a first significant investment and founded BigProfiles.
