Santo Joseph Leo was born in Cooper City, Florida and raised in Lake Worth, Florida.
At the age of 7 years old, in 1996, he began using a PC given to him by his Grandfather, and eventually the Internet. He has more than 15-years of technology, coding, web development, digital and interactive marketing, and management experience. He began his career in 2002 at an email marketing agency while still in middle school and, over the next six years, he was involved with multiple digital marketing firms and working on various projects, which took advantage of technologies such as blogging (TreasureBlogging.com), web hosting (Clearogic Hosting), verified dating websites (LoveDiner.com) that were still in their infancy at the time. Illustrating his entrepreneurship, in 2008, at age 18 he raised nearly 1 million dollars in venture capital to found UniversityLyfe, a collegiate social network intended to promote student collaboration on campus.
After UniversityLyfe, he worked at BMI Elite (now SiteImpact). During his 5-year tenure, he worked on several M&A transactions, including the acquisition of the Accelerize New Media’s (OTC:ACLZ, the creator of Cake marketing software) Affiliate Program which focused on subprime affiliate marketing offers. He expanded this program to include categories such as Health Insurance Services, Durable Medical Equipment, and Pharmaceuticals. During his tenure, under his direction as Director of Business Development, these verticals were ultimately spun off into their own divisions or subsidiaries of BMI Ventures, BMI Elite’s then-parent company. The Accelerize Affiliate Program was rebranded under his direction as Crush Ads, and later sold by BMI Ventures to Tracsion, a division of bluTonic, Inc.
In 2016, after becoming tired of building his client’s companies and wanting to build a meaningful product that could benefit society, he left BMI Elite to start MailMyPresriptions.com (now referred to simply as “mailmyprescriptions.com”). He raised $1.6mm in order to begin construction on a 25,000-sq. ft. state-of-the-art pharmacy, capable of safely dispensing millions of prescriptions annually. The facility replaced the old Gallery Center in Boca Raton, which is strategically located in the same business park as the United States Postal Service Woodland Station distribution hub. This allowed for MailMyPrescriptions.com to get their shipments into the mail stream one day faster than average. The facility received LegitScript Certification, Pharmacy Certification and its pharmacy license from the Florida Board of Pharmacy by the end of the year.
