Gian Luca Petrelli shares the inspiration behind his crowdsourced data startup Written by Christine G. Coester on 2. January 2017

The newest episode of Startup Notes interviewed Gian Luca Petrelli, the co-founder of Italian startup BeMyEye, and it is worth a listen.
Petrelli dives into “how he came up with the idea to build Europe’s biggest crowd community of real-world data gathers.”
In May 2016, the startup raised a €6.5 million (6.8 million USD) Series B round, according to crunchbase.

“We were lucky enough to raise money with just paper in our hands.”

In this episode:

  • How he went from olive oil producer to founder of Europe’s biggest crowd community of real-world data gathers
  • Why having a personal need is the best starting point for a successful business
  • How Facebook helped BeMyEye build their community, even in small Italian villages
  • His most exciting and most devastating moments as an entrepreneur
  • What he would do differently and what he would do exactly the same next time
