Origin Story

Luigi Prestinenzi and David Fastuca are two great friends who grew up in the same town. They had much in common, but their mutual passion for football (soccer) brought them closer.

As young kids, they played football together on the weekend, building a foundation of friendship that they never knew then. However, it would one day turn into building a business with the vision of impacting millions of people.

As they grew older, their love for football never dwindled, but they both found new passions in life. Luigi became a master of sales and started educating others on how to become the best sales professionals they could be.

He had a natural talent for connecting with people and closing deals, and soon he was in high demand as a sales coach.

David, on the other hand, co-founded Locomote. He poured his heart and soul into the company and, with his marketing skills, grew it to over 100 million in valuation through to acquisition by Travelport, then a listed company on the NYSE: The New York Stock Exchange.

He exited the business in 2018 and spent time investing in the startup scene and reconnecting with Luigi. But when COVID hit, everything changed.

Locomote was hit hard, and the company (Travelport) that initially bought Locomote was looking to sell it, amongst other businesses they had acquired over the last 15 years.

David repurchased Locomote during COVID and re-launched it back to its former glory. With a new strategy and a fresh outlook, David and the team grew Locomote company to its original peak and saw it through its recent capital raise.

Luigi coached the sales team within Locomote, which grew their pipeline to over 1.5 billion in deals through his teaching. Throughout all this, Luigi and David remained close friends. During this time, they often talked about their respective careers and how they could use their skills to help others.

They both knew that they wanted to create something unique, something that would make a real difference in people's lives. And then it hit them – they could combine their passions for sales and marketing to create the ultimate education community.

They could teach people the skills they need to succeed in business while helping them achieve their personal goals. David and Luigi started working on their dream project, putting all their knowledge and experience into creating the perfect platform.

They spent countless hours brainstorming, planning, and designing, and eventually, their hard work paid off. In 2023 Growth Forum was born. Their new community has been a hit.
