He continued his graduate studies (Master in Sanitary Engineering) at Florida International University in Miami, and later on he took several marketing and managerial courses through American Management Association.
Associated since 1978 with engineering firms and the private industry, Mr. Frizone got progressively more responsible technical, administrative and marketing roles encompassing all aspects. Engineering activities included design, construction, planning, cost analysis, and overseeing contractors in real estate development projects. After two years of working in Marna S.A., an engineering firm, Mr. Frizone showed his entrepreneurial spirit by starting his own consulting firm: Craft S.A.. At the end of 1981 Mr. Frizone moved to the United States and worked for the first few months as a consultant for Ecosystem Engineering, a Miami based company.
After becoming a Registered Engineer in the State of Florida, in 1982 Mr. Frizone founded Environmental Technology Exchange, Inc. (ETx), a consulting engineering and trading company. Through ETx, he exported a variety of equipment for engineering projects into South America. ETx, operates today, mainly as a consulting firm and is working on projects in South Florida.
During 1982, Mr. Frizone was contracted by S.F.S. (a Swedish company based in Miami) to develop a new wastewater treatment process and implement it's application in plants around the world. The process was successfully developed and in 1984 Mr. Frizone moved to the Fort Myers area, when Munters Corporation (another Swedish company based in Fort Myers) bought the rights to market these products.

The two transactions closed on the same day, thus requiring only $5,000 of deposit money as investment to realize the deal.
