Simona Graziani’s academic journey commenced with acquiring a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bocconi University. She further distinguished herself by completing her Master’s degree in Management at Bocconi and an additional Double Degree in International Management from Esade Business School in Barcelona, graduating with honours.

Her professional trajectory began at P&G Madrid, followed by a pivotal role as Marketing Manager at Amazon, culminating in the establishment of Takyon in 2022, where she assumed the position of Chief Marketing Officer. Takyon, a trailblazing travel-tech startup, has catalyzed a monumental shift by enabling individuals to convert hotel stays into digital assets that can be resold. This pioneering concept termed the “Resellable Rate,” represents a prepaid, non-refundable yet resellable rate that can be directly booked on the hotel’s website and subsequently traded on the Takyon platform. This groundbreaking initiative heralds the advent of the world’s premier travel marketplace, fundamentally transforming the management and exchange of hotel reservations. Through the Resellable Rate, Takyon also plays a pivotal role in expediting the disintermediation process for its partner hotels.
