Matteo, born in Rome and is currently in his senior year at the American Overseas School of Rome, is 17 years old. He may still be a teenager and still in school, but he has business talents that would wow even the most seasoned executives. So it’s no surprise that as the owner of two six-figure enterprises, Matteo has a large following and has become a role model for other young people who wish to follow in his footsteps.
Matteo’s first business began with Oblique Jewels at age 14. He decided to launch his first business, always being passionate about accessories and seeing the iced-out jewelry trend. Offering beautiful jewelry at reasonable prices, the site has made more than 10,000 sales and achieved over 1,000 reviews.
He is also the proud owner and CEO of Top Music Marketing Agency®, a company founded in 2019 that supports young emerging artists with a large, organic following. Matteo grew up listening to hip-hop, including artists like Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd. The 17-year-old also represents the country of his parents, as he is a keen admirer of Chinese music.
When asked what drives him, he answered: “As I am a first-generation student, my parents did not attend college and still managed to succeed in life. What drives me is hard work, a skill my parents have taught me since I was young.”
