Today on the Social Scene with JZ we get inspired by the talented Founder and CEO of Biaggi Luggage, Stephen Hersh. You also might have seen Stephen on Shark Tank Season 6!
On the podcast we learn all about Stephen's first handbag ever created to how Biaggi was launched in June of 2011. Originally from Brooklyn, Stephen grew up with a father in the consumer merchandise industry.
Stephen and his father's company Rosetti helped create the first handbag to fit your huge "nokia" cellphone back in the day when cellphones were just an "accessory."
With a background in consumer merchandise, this allowed Stephen to get involved in the industry since a young age.
In addition, Biaggi has allowed Stephen to set out to solve the storage issues that luggage presents, and ultimately Biaggi invented the world’s first four-wheeled luggage that folds for easy storage.
"In 2013, Biaggi launched the Zipsak; a lightweight four-wheeled suitcase that folds into a tiny pouch. With Biaggi struggling to educate consumers about their products, Stephen Hersh applied to appear on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank. In June 2014 Hersh appeared on the show, securing a partnership with celebrity entrepreneur Lori Greiner. Since appearing on Shark Tank, Biaggi has sold over $3 Million worth of foldable luggage through various retail channels. In January of 2016, Stephen and Biaggi will be appearing on the season premier of ABC’s Beyond the Tank."
