Lucca and Gianni Santolamazza
“We’re brothers by chance and business partners by choice,” say Lucca and Gianni Santolamazza. The 12 and 13-year-old brothers have wanted to own a company for as long as they can remember. They even took a seven month class for kid entrepreneurs that taught them how to brainstorm, write a business strategy, and successfully market products. In June 2018, they had their concept ready to go: a journal for dog lovers to track their adventures in puppy parenthood. Today, the brothers are figuring out how to balance their small business with school and doing regular kid stuff like hanging with friends.
