THE WINNERS OF THE STARTUP WEEKEND

First public presentation of the Guide Me Right project at the Startup Weekend organized by Tiscali. Luca decided to take part in the event to test his romantic idea of business. Just one-minute speech to gain the panel's favor and win the competition. But it was fun and winning from the beginning. A makeshift team and three days of non-stop work ended with a success. It was the opportunity we were waiting for and we grabbed this chance!

INCORPORATION & STARTUP VOUCHER GRANT/ASSIGNMENT

Well, the main ingredients for a start-up are passion and enthusiasm, but financial assistance is always welcome! In just three months after the foundation of the company, we received the first good news: we were selected for the Startup Voucher program by Sardegna Ricerche, which financed our project for € 50,000. Thanks to the Startup Voucher, we were able to speed up the development of the marketplace and the community and to employ the first member of the Guide Me Right Staff.

THE WINNERS of "URBAN LIFE & MOBILITY" AWARD IN LONDON

In London, on the thirtieth floor of a building in King's Cross, we presented the Guide Me Right project along with the 10 finalists of the "Urban Life & Mobility" award. It was promoted by the EIT ICT Labs, a European organization which supports emergent startups around Europe. "There is not a smart city without smart cityzens" was our successful approach and “the winner is Guide Me Right!”. This was our first achievement outside of Italy, we were awarded € 40,000 and we came back home with many contacts to help us with the development of the project. It was a great moment.

FIWARE ACCELERATION PROGRAM BY FI-C3

We had recently obtained financial support abroad by winning the prize of EIT ICT Labs. A few weeks later, we came back to the Tiscali Open Campus (our coworking space) where we realized that we had to work harder than before, as we succeed to grab a new opportunity. We were selected for the FIWARE acceleration program by FI-C3: we received a contribution of € 130,000 to develop our project by using the Enablers Fiware, developed to facilitate the use of OPEN data and technology across Europe.

FACING NEW CHALLENGES

Tourism is our passion, but is also a competitive market. Suddenly the largest operators begin to offer tours and experiences. To meet tourists is becoming hard. We had to renew products and team members and surprisingly we find out that we were not the only ones. We decided to join another startup, 1000 Italy, which shares our vision of promoting bottom-up Italian tourism and cultural heritage. This fusion gives rise to EDGAR SRL with the aim of developing a "must-have" product for all tourist accommodations.

EDGAR SMART CONCIERGE IS LIVE

Immediately, many tourist accommodations get in touch with us to offer their guests our experiences, better assist them and increase their profit. Indeed, with EDGAR Smart Concierge each accommodation has a customized App of Digital Concierge to manage guests before, during and after their stay. Each accommodation introduces and sells its internal and external services via the App! Thanks to EDGAR, not only does Guide Me Right sell local experiences, but becomes a new powerful tool for all service providers willing to network to earn more and to promote their own land.
