Startup Grind Milano is inviting you to an event with Marco Magnocavallo that is the Founder and CEO of one of the hottest Italian Startup: Tannico.
Tannico just received €4 Million in a Series A funding round.

At the age of twenty-three, he founded a web agency where he and his team developed projects for the Italian Postal Service, McKinsey, Daimler and other European companies. He then sold his company to a pre-IPO company and founded an online vertical publishing business (Blogo) that became, within four years, the third most visited news site in Italy with more than 12 million monthly unique users, and activities in Italy, the UK, France, Spain and Brazil. He then sold this company to the DADA/RCS Media Group.
