About the founder

Stefano Cutello – CEO
Former technical leader and scrum master at eBay Italy and entrepreneur since the age of 18, he came up with the idea of creating PastBook when browsing through a family photo album with his father. Having realized that he would not be able to recollect his own memories saved all over the Internet so easily, he decided to provide a platform for that.

In order to fully commit to the idea, he quit his job at eBay, relocated to Amsterdam, while having put all of his property in Italy for sale: his car, his motorbike and his house too.

Agile by definition, passionate about everything that has to do with technology, lateral thinker and an innate product developer. His motto: "hard work is the way to success".
