Code Story


Stephanie Florio's journey to tech started in the world of advertising. She always knew that she wanted to be an entrepreneur, but didn't really know what it was. Outside of tech, she has a young family. In fact, when recording the episode, she was near her due date for her second child. For fun, she loves to go out for dinner and hang out with her friends and family. Pasta and pizza are the favorites but she is open to trying new things. As mentioned, Stephanie didn't know what sort of business she wanted to start. That was until her brother got frustrated with looking for a job, and together, they figured out there must be another way. They did some research, and used their knowledge of popular dating apps, to create a simple, swipe-able platform. This is the creation story of Swob.
