Career & Entrepreneurship
Edward Tomasso’s career in Business Management started to take shape before he even received his high school diploma. Along with teammates from his school’s cross country team, the high schooler managed a small apparel line called Run CT. Though short-lived, the project offered Edward Tomasso vital lessons on how to turn an idea into a business.
Under the guidance of his business class, Edward Tomasso introduced innovation to morning routine with his company Compresso. The company’s product catered to on-the-go coffee drinkers, relying on the technology of a collapsible coffee mug. Eager to give back to the community, all of Compresso’s profits were donated to the Boys & Girls Club. By the company’s 10th week, Compresso achieved a profit margin reaching 103% return on the original investment. From an imagined idea to tangible product, Edward Tomasso took his invention through every step of development. The success of the project motivated him to persist in his entrepreneurial endeavors.
The Compresso project offered Edward Tomasso a tantalizing taste at web-based marketing. In 2014, he carried those promotion tactics into the professional world by working with Dive Advisor. He took on the role of Social Media Manager for the Dubai-based scuba diving company, overseeing marketing ventures during the application’s beta testing period.
Today, Edward Tomasso seeks to pump productivity into the world of one of his life’s passions: golf. Having worked at his family’s golf course for years, the sport remains close to the entrepreneur’s heart. That’s why he is currently developing a software company for the golf industry. The project is currently in its infancy, but the young business professional eagerly anticipates the journey of crafting his idea into something real and palpable.
