Gian Luca Petrelli shares the inspiration behind his crowdsourced data startup

The newest episode of Startup Notes interviewed Gian Luca Petrelli, the co-founder of Italian startup BeMyEye, and it is worth a listen.

Petrelli dives into "how he came up with the idea to build Europe's biggest crowd community of real-world data gathers."

In May 2016, the startup raised a €6.5 million (6.8 million USD) Series B round, according to crunchbase.

“We were lucky enough to raise money with just paper in our hands.”
