Buongiorno

“Buongiorno, a DOCOMO Company, is known in the
worldwide mobile commerce ecosystem for
developing and managing paid apps and services
that help consumers get greater enjoyment from
mobile devices. Buongiorno is now a global leader at

Buongiorno
Buongiorno is an Italian company that provides
content (such as games, music, and information) for
mobile phones.

Buongiorno started out in 1995 when current
chairman Mauro Del Rio started sending humorous
e-mail messages with the subject "Buongiorno" to 11
friends. The business expanded quickly—by 1998 he
was sending e-mail newsletters to 25,000 people.


                                     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buongiorno
Buongiorno
Del Rio launched Buongiorno SpA to provided
services for the telecommunications market,
beginning a policy of growth through international
acquisitions, the first of which was of the Spanish
company MyAlert in 2001. Buongiorno merged with
Vitaminic in July 2003 to form Buongiorno Vitaminic
SpA. The company continued with its policy of
acquisitions, the most significant of which were the
Italian company Gsmbox in 2004, and the French
company Freever in 2005.

Volagratis
The website was created in 2004, spawning from the success of low-cost
flight companies.
Low-costs were usually not considered in the traditional channels of
distribution (booking sites and travel agencies): an hassle for the
customer willing to book a flight, who had to check all the companies'
sites one by one.
This intuition pushed the founders to “ride the wave”, gaining instant
success. Later, they broadened the range of services offered, including
hotels and full holiday packages, therefore improving the perceived value
of the service.

Jobrapido


“Jobrapido is one of the largest job search engines in the world, delivering
660m visits per year in more than 50 countries. It helps job seekers search
millions of jobs globally, and provides employers with access to one of the
world's largest candidate audiences.”




                                                            http://www.evenbase.com/
Jobrapido


“Looking for a job on the web is annoying”. From this thought of Vito
Lomele (an engineer from Conversano, who lived in UK and Germany) was
born the idea to limit to the minumum this unavoidable phase: “I was
looking for a hob, and I realized how it was difficult and complicated. So I
said myself: there are no search engines for job offers? I'll make one”

Started in 2004, in 2006 became a company.




                                                        http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobrapido
Jobrapido

With the project growing, more people and money were needed: 200k €
were raised from some friends, including the former boss, and 150k € were
invested by an european entrepreneur, Oliver Samwer.

2011's turnover was 24 million Euro, with 3 of net profit; 660 million users,
80 employees from all over the world.

In 2012 Evenbase, from the publishing group DMGT (Daily Mail and
General Trust) bought out 49% of the company (it is said, for 30 millions),
leaving Lomele at the helm with 51%.



                                                          http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobrapido

                                   http://www.crunchbase.com/company/glancee
Glancee

Founded in 2010 by Andrea Vaccari, Alberto Tretti

Facebook.

It was bought before having earned any money, and
without having received any funding.
Glancee

“We are therefore very excited to announce that
Facebook has acquired Glancee and that we have
joined the team in Menlo Park to build great products
for over 900 million Facebook users. We've had such
a blast connecting people through Glancee, and we
truly thank our users for being a part of the Glancee
community.”

  • 18. Volagratis The website was created in 2004, spawning from the success of low-cost flight companies. Low-costs were usually not considered in the traditional channels of distribution (booking sites and travel agencies): an hassle for the customer willing to book a flight, who had to check all the companies' sites one by one. This intuition pushed the founders to “ride the wave”, gaining instant success. Later, they broadened the range of services offered, including hotels and full holiday packages, therefore improving the perceived value of the service. http://www.ict4executive.it/executive/interviste/volagratiscom-sul-web-un-successo-made-in-italy---intervista-a-marco-corradino- fondatore_4367215330.htm

  • 22. Jobrapido “Looking for a job on the web is annoying”. From this thought of Vito Lomele (an engineer from Conversano, who lived in UK and Germany) was born the idea to limit to the minumum this unavoidable phase: “I was looking for a hob, and I realized how it was difficult and complicated. So I said myself: there are no search engines for job offers? I'll make one” Started in 2004, in 2006 became a company. http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobrapido
