29 Apr Nick Sambrato – Mama’s Sauce
The first time I met Nick was during a pivotal moment in my design career. I was a sophomore in design school trying to figure out how to balance being a full time design student, a part time working mother of one and a full time wife. I was overwhelmed, exhausted and needed to be inspired. One day Nick Sambrato was invited by the Graphic Design Student Association at U.C.F to speak about being an entrepreneur in the print and digital design industry. I am so glad I was able to find some time in my busy schedule to attend his talk, because his story resonated in me and inspired me to pursue my dream no matter the obstacles that came my way.
Nick is a second generation Italian American who was born in New York, transplanted in Florida, and raised in a very Italian household. He is a serial entrepreneur that started his first business at the age of 13. Today, he is known best for being the founder of Mama’s Sauce; a gourmet letterpress, silkscreen, & hot foil print shop. Nick also helps inspire and educate people all over the United States through the Print Matters movement.
In this episode I’ll be talking with Nick about his Italian American upbringing and how its influenced his entrepreneurial mind. He’ll be sharing with us stories about his Italian family and the bromance that inspired the founding of his current company; Mama’s Sauce. Nick will also share with us the stories behind the many failures that lead to his current success.
