From Yachts to Meatless Burgers – Introducing Entrepreneur Tommaso Chiabra
If you were born in Italy among the seas it does not guarantee you a sunshine or a yacht business but entrepreneur Tommaso Chiabra had surely achieved exactly that.
But how does a young entrepreneur from Italy become so successful that even despite having a business in luxury he goes bigger?
For him the ultimate answer is the persistence in all he did starting with the yacht group business he started.
“My partner and I founded Royal Yacht Brokers in 2011. I am from Genoa, so I grew up by the sea and it became my passion. What else was there to do apart from joining into the business of yachting? Once I started to approach the yachting industry, first with a supplies company, it fast developed into brokerage. We already had a network of clientele and we moved into many locations such as Monaco, London, Turkey, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Los Angeles and we are soon going to be in Hong Kong hopefully during the third quarter of 2019. We want the Chinese market to be our next hub as much as America is.”
Given such vivid experiences and lessons on his way up it is not wonder he didn’t stop there. No one the contrary he invested into what turned out to be so much bigger. A booming international business in a sensational plant based meat niche called BeyondBurger.
“Replacing animal proteins with plant protein sources is a revolution that will work wonders for human health, for the environment, for the conservation of natural resources and for the animals” […] “Replacing animal proteins with plant protein sources is a revolution that will work wonders for human health, for the environment, for the conservation of natural resources and for the animals,” says Tommaso Chiabra. “The meat industry has a strong environmental impact. Investing in ethical and environmental causes is one of my commitments as a businessman who looks to the future as an activist. For me not only the business, but also making more changes in the world is important”
