Entrepreneur

Returning from an Executive Education program at Stanford Graduate School of Business in the Californian summer of 2015, Emilio threw in his six figure pay packet and senior executive role to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time entrepreneur.

Having already co-founded Adelaide Gardening Group the year before, in 2015 Emilio started his second business De Stefano & Co, a boutique management consultancy firm which has since allowed him to share his knowledge and learnings with businesses, industry associations and government organisations around the globe.

Outside of these businesses, Emilio continues to mentor local start-ups and entrepreneurs.
