HappyWays - Carpooling for events

HappyWays will soon be an online platform, together with a web app for mobile devices, which not only provides you with an extensive calendar of events updated and personalized, but will also provide an alternative, more engaging, economical and eco-friendly way to reach them. Encouraging the practice of carpooling, it allows to share the spare places in cars, reduce costs, traffic and pollution. It will also allow to overcome the limitations of public transport, often very poor at night. Internet and social networking has allowed first to be able to overcome the narrow confines of their circles of friends and acquaintances, and secondly, due to the mandatory registration of their personal data and to a system based on user feedback, to limit most of the problems related to safety of traveling with strangers. The innovation of carpooling developed by our assumptions is most likely to find a solution that meets the needs of users by aggregating the offers and requests of rides that happen for particular events: these common destinations also foreshadow an affinity of interests which helps to overcome the lack of trust that restrict the use of carpooling.

The organizers are our most important partners during the launch of the platform; thanks to the catchment area of the events we should be able to reach an initial number people (early adopters), which will allow us to get in a short time a good number of active users, who will lean our portal to reach their niche. The portal will become a tool in the hands of the organizers to make targeted promotion towards a public profiled both by interests and geography.



How funds will be used

The company was founded in July 2015 andthis t ime has been dedicated to the development of the beta version of the website. The funds raised through the Eppela call will help us to improve the usability of the site and the web app and begin to invest in the promotion of our services. Our supporters will become an integral part of the community that we are trying to train and will be encouraged to test the beta version to notify us of all possible improvements.




Andrea and Paolo had a dream...

...BE ABE TO REACH EVEN EVENTS FARTERHOME WITHOUT SPENDING A CAPITAL AND MAYBE MAKE NEW FRIEND WITH INTERESTS IN COMMON

The first idea for the project came about a year ago from a need felt by both members of the group. Indeed, we have varied interests and participate in different types of events for which we need to make journeys that impact significantly on the costs of participation. We have a great passion for new technologies related to the web and social media and we believe in the importance and effectiveness of new models of shared economy especially as a way to find a pursue a development that also has the characteristic of being eco sustainable.

We are open and very favorable to the opportunities that these new services offer in terms of relationships and potential connections with new people with common interests; between the various aspects that internet is helping to emerge, one of the most interesting is the one related to the sharing economy with sites that specialize in the different sectors (CouchSurfing, AirBnB etc.).
