BigProfiles: Our history
“Everything started from a PHD”
BigProfiles was founded in 2017 when Lorenzo Luce, CEO of BigProfiles, was undertaking a PHD of Computer Engineering at the University of Roma tre.
Lorenzo’s goal during his scientific research was to develop an artificial intelligence algorithm that could automatically process publicly available heterogeneous information about people and companies.
Only with the involvement of his dear friend Roberto Visceglia, former COO of the company, the idea became a business.
Together they’ve founded BigProfiles, bringing to the market a software platform which has received significant funding from major Italian venture capital funds.
