Peter Szanto is a creative individual, speaker, photographer who founded Szanto&Company, a full stack digital craftsmanship agency, where he is the CEO.

Peter specialized in dealing with creative tasks in both private and business life. He can be found on the streets of Budapest, Los Angeles or Italy.
He is failed founder of TouchCo, a start-up that innovated great apps through customers? pain research and distributes them via networks. The key was not in reinventing the wheel but focusing on synchronizing yet incompatible elements. Even tough the team raised Angel money and – thanks to customer development -, established great partnerships with organizations like WWF, they never got to launch. Running out of money meant only one thing: fail forward.
Peter was the President of Student Government at Corvinus University, where he got his Master in marketing communication cum laude and did a one year post grad program at The Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the USC Marshall School of Business.
