Sharewood published by financial newspaper “Il Sole 24 Ore”

The startup Sharewood has won the newspaper headlines in today’s edition of the leading Italian financial newspaper. And for good reason: it has reached another significant milestone.

For the first time in Italy, a startup has been able to convince more than 100 investors simultaneously, to invest their money in a single equity crowdfunding campaign. The fundraising is still in progress on the crowdfunding platform CrowdFundME.

Sharewood is the leading European peer-to-peer social marketplace and network that enables people to list or rent outdoor equipment for snow sport, water sport and biking.

The acceleration programme in Vertical has now been completed.

The startup has won the first edition of Startup Italian Open at #BTO2016 Buy Tourism Online. And this has certainly been instrumental in gaining even more attention of the investors. In May 2017 the timimg should be right as the prize the team has won, participating at the PhocusWright Europe conference in Amsterdam, will be a great chance to get noticed internationally.

Phocuswright is the travel industry research authority on how travelers, suppliers and intermediaries connect.

Creative Thinking Ventures is founding investor in Sharewood, and has invested, pre-seed, at the birth of the company.
