The original business idea dates back to the summer of 2013 when the three founding members decide to join their experiences and intuitions to develop a common project with a high social impact. The organization starts its activity thanks to its participation to "IC Cultural Innovation" by Cariplo Foundation” and later wins many awards like Think for Social by Vodafone Foundation, Tandem Europe by MitOst Foundation, Digital Award 2017 by Regione Lombardia and Meet the Media Guru and Enterprise and Tourism Award 4.0 of Chamber of Commerce and R.
