Nicolas was born and raised in Milan, Italy, where he grew up in a mixed Jewish and non-Jewish education, albeit with Galateo dining rules. After finishing high school, Nicolas studied finance at Bocconi University, including an exchange semester at George Washington University during which he focused on finance and real estate. A tech nerd from the early age of ten when he received his first iMac, Nicolas started his first company Styligion, at age 21. Styligion is an e-commerce company focused on emerging fashion designers that collaborated with the most famous fashion bloggers around, such as Chiara Ferragni. Less than two years later, he started his second company, which provides services to players of online games and which is currently his primary occupation. Its revolutionary business model allows thousands of online game players to transform their passion into a job, employing professional players from all over the world. Nicolas was also head of web marketing for Ecodyger, a revolutionary machine that transforms organic waste into fertilizer. He is currently spending most of his time managing the development and marketing teams of his companies. Oh, and he is also the chief technical support for all the devices used by his mom and friends.
