Fundraising: Bootstrapping

Stevan Stojkov and Marco Benfenati discover a poorly digitized second-hand market that struggles to see the transition from a niche market to a mass market.

They decide to bring online only selected sellers who transform used into pre-loved and vintage both in terms of the quality of the items and the shopping experience.

The adventure begins. The project starts from scratch, the entrepreneurial experience of the founders too.

In the following two years the pilot project is developed in Bologna and the founders are trained to take the project and the team to the next level.
