philoro did start out as a small start-up. Rudolf Brenner and René Brückler rented a small office in Vienna and opened the first online shop for precious metals in Austria. Both men had spent the first part of their careers in the investment sector of the banking industry. It was here, that they first identified an open spot, in the millennia old precious metals industry. Little did they know that this would be the start of what is now becoming a global precious metals brand.
