Origin Story

In the heart of Victoria, Australia, David Fastuca and Luigi Prestinenzi, found a bond on the soccer fields that was about to shape the future in ways they couldn't have imagined.

This story isn't just about business; it's about a journey from loss, hardship, and a dream that refused to die.

It's the story of Growth Forum.

David's life was a battle from the start.

Losing his father at just two years old, he faced the world with a mix of vulnerability and determination.

Each challenge, from starting a business at 14 to navigating the complexities of family life, was met with a resilience that became the hallmark of his journey.

Soccer wasn't just a game to David; it was a lifeline, a place where he could lose himself and find peace amid chaos.

Luigi, on the other hand, had a gift for connecting with people, turning every conversation into an opportunity.

His journey was one of mastering the art of sales, transforming his innate skills into a career that touched the lives of many.

Their paths, rich with individual triumphs and setbacks, converged into a shared vision during the pandemic—a time when the world was reeling, businesses were struggling, and the future was uncertain.

It was then that Growth Forum was born.

But it wasn't just about creating a successful business.

It was about igniting hope, fostering growth, and building a community where everyone could find their place and purpose.

Growth Forum became more than a platform for learning sales; it was a beacon of inspiration, a testament to the power of resilience, friendship, and unwavering belief in one's dreams.

David and Luigi, with their shared history and complementary skills, crafted a space where challenges were met with courage, and growth was a collective journey.

As they look ahead, their story resonates far beyond the realms of business.

It's a reminder that our most profound struggles can lead to our greatest achievements.

It's about two friends from Victoria who dared to dream, to fight, and to create something that would not only change their lives but also inspire others to believe in the possibility of transformation and success against all odds.

Growth Forum is not just their legacy; it's a call to all of us to pursue our passions, to rise above our circumstances, and to build something meaningful—together.
