We happily surpassed 10K downloads! 🤩

Also, we recently simplified some steps in the app in order to make the UX experience even better. If you haven’t done so yet, download the volvero app right away!


As anticipated in our last newsletter, this past month has been full of events! We kicked things off with the hackathon organised by the Bologna Business School, where students focused on volvero as a case study and we must say, they did an amazing job. 👨‍🏫

The Clean Cities ClimAccelerator demo-day took place in Madrid, and volvero was represented by Jose Luis Castedo (in the photo): thank you Jose! 💙

Podcasts enthusiasts, you don’t want to miss this one! Our CEO Marco Filippi has been interviewed in a famous podcast sponsored by a big corporate that supports tech projects. He and the host discussed past, present, and future of volvero… want to find out more? Stay tuned! 👂

South By Southwest was eventful to say the least! We were one of the 12 Italian innovators chosen to be in the central pavilion, and we went full on. We networked, we pitched and promoted volvero, and finally ended up interviewed by the most important radio channel in Italy, RAI Radio 2. 🚀

Speaking of good results, we want to thank Emily Jatczac, Flavia Spera and Mansur Karimi from Ironhack for their excellent UX and UI activities over the period they spent focussing on volvero.

Other bright students at SMU Cox, a Texan Business School, are currently working with us on developing scale-up ideas for volvero’s next stops. 👏

The last week of March has been rich of events. We were thrilled to have won the ioMobility Awards and to be hosted at the Bold Awards. The latter promote socially and environmentally impactful initiatives that we always fully support. 🙌
