A business success story

Next14 was founded in 2014 by Marco Ferrari (Chairman and CEO), Matteo Scortegagna and Marco Franciosa, who had all previously worked together on the successful Neo Network project, a start-up founded in 2000 which generated a turnover of over €30 million before successfully being sold to the De Agostini Group in 2008.

The vision behind Next14 was the need to create an agile and highly entrepreneurial business, capable of assisting companies in the new marketing challenges posed by data, automation and cultural changes in consumers, intercepting the trends which are clearly visible today and investing in the technologies needed to understand them.
