About Alvaro

Founder of Aztro Marketplace, an online platform dedicated to connecting design-driven brands from around the world with Retailers, Interior Designers, and Collectors. Our goal is to create a one-stop-shop for design products where quality and user experience thrives above all.

I am an Industrial Designer by practice, who worked for over ten years with luxury and high-end brands, creating home accessories and decor. I lead two award-winning studios and, last year I started a new company focused on facilitating trade between brands, retailers, interior designers, and collectors. We launched in August, with over 1,000 high-end products.

My expertise is in the industry of design. I am looking for members who have an affinity for this industry, but have experience in Sales, Luxury Marketing, B2B, or Web Marketplaces Development.
