Kassi.eu used to be a research project which turned into a lovely Bottom-up Social Sharing Startup.
As a research project, it tried to answer this question: “What kind of services students could use to ask for help from each other?” Then the question became : what kind of things do we need from each others ? The answer turns out to be that Stuff and rides were the main needs.
A first platform was built for the Aalto University in Helsinky, and students started to use the service. People’s reactions were very positive because the service was locally and community-based, which in turn helped to spread the necessary trust to the exchanges.
Juho & his co-founders decided to set up a Social Entreprise as it fits really well the sharing and collaborative consumption movement.
The idea of the Hold-Up is to help Juho with his challenges related to scaling his service out of Finland (Kassi communities have been launched in Russia and Ireland already and Kassi was selected in the presitigious Chilean accelerator program for startups). Juho created a Parisian community for the #collcons scene and he’s really interested in launching his service in France too.
Join Kassi, MakeSense and the French collaborative consumption community for a HoldUp on Kassi’s challenges!
