Introducing the Showstoppers of 9minutes
Maurizio Zivelonghi and Marco Moschini, the co-founders of 9minutes met in a consultant firm where they discovered the passion for business and technology. Apart from the founders, Fornacestudio.com plays a major role in the development and app maintenance.
9minutes was born in a fashion store. The idea sparkled while shopping with girlfriends. “To buy or not to buy?” was always the question that baffled all the shopaholic or any buyer. They tend to look for advice by calling/texting/sending pictures to friends or family right at the store.
After the idea of 9minutes ticked in the masterminds, it passed quickly from simple thinking to real execution. However, the biggest challenges faced while the makings of 9minutes were failure through several applications for tech accelerators/incubators before being accepted by Polihub.
Working to set up your own start-up is satiable but the other side of the story is that it is indeed hard to resist to the pressure while bootstrapping, with no certainty of success whatsoever.
