THE WINNERS OF THE STARTUP WEEKEND

First public presentation of the Guide Me Right project at the Startup Weekends organized by Tiscali. Luca decided to take part in the event with Pietro, his friend and colleague, in order to test his romantic idea of business. Just one-minute speech to convince the panel to be selected for the competition but it was fun, it was crazy, it was a success from the beginning. A makeshift team (where we met Andrea, a developer with an entrepreneurial soul) and three days of non-stop work concluded with an exciting victory. It was the opportunity we were waiting for and we grabbed this chance!

BIRTH OF THE GUIDE ME RIGHT SRL

In January 2014, after a few weeks of working together, Luca, Pietro and Andrea officially started their start-up adventure and founded the Guide Me Right SRL: one of the first innovative Italian start-ups that aims to create the first ‘made in Italy’ marketplace of P2P local experiences, but with international ambition. Some experts discouraged us to develop a sharing economy marketplace in Italy, but we were full of enthusiasm. This was the formal beginning of this adventure!

THE WINNERS OF THE STARTUP VOUCHER PROGRAM

Well, the main ingredients for a start-up are bread and enthusiasm, but a financial support is never refuse! Three months after the birth of the company, we received the first good news: we were selected for the Startup Voucher program by Sardegna Ricerche. This was our second victory, but the first that put an economic resource at our disposal to invest in the project (50,000 €). Thanks to the Startup Voucher, we were able to speed up with the development of the marketplace and community and to employ Mirko, the first member of the Guide Me Right Staff, and Federica our first non-sardinian collaborator.
