Torino Sweet Home project was born in June 2014 by two Torinesi girls, Lavinia and Loredana, both passionate about travel and tourism, who decided to make this passion something more.
Torino Sweet Home was created to offer an innovative service to the owner, allowing him to make income with his property through the sharing economy. Torino Sweet Home project begins to take shape from December 2014, when the two partners, having left their respective works, present the idea to the first owners and acquire the first two houses with the aim of testing the idea of bringing together supply and demand in this sector. So begins the entrepreneurial adventure of Torino Sweet Home that immediately fits into an excellent intermediary between the owners, eager to learn about innovative possibilities with which making their property income, and guests looking for a quality reception service in alternative to current market proposals, in which you feel at home and experience the city in a different way.
The project grows and Torino Sweet Home wins first the IoLavoroStartUp award promoted by the Human + Foundation in collaboration with the Piemonte Lavoro Agency (APL), then the competition of the Edoardo Garrone Foundation of a business laboratory on Cultural Tourism.
Thus begins a tiling path that brings Torino Sweet Home for a few years to the innovative and creative context of the Talent Garden in Turin.
In September 2015 the jury of the “Startup contest” at the Supernova Festival of the city of Turin recognizes a further special award to the project, which a few days later obtains the official validation of the Business Plan by the MIP of the Province of turin.
Thanks to word of mouth and the development of contacts in Turin, the number of managed apartments grows from the day of its birth and the project is transformed into an increasingly innovative business.
In 2016 Torino Sweet Home adds an important piece to operate in a professional manner and provide additional services to its portfolio through the acquisition of the real estate license.
New confirmations and acknowledgments of the excellent and incessant work of Torino Sweet Home arrive also in the following years: as the victory of the national contest “Reside Innovation” in Milan at the XXIT Triennale di Milano – International Exhibition on Innovation in Real Estate and home that allows the startup to begin a professionalization and coaching with the French association Reseau Entreprendre, still in progress.
Torino Sweet Home is currently in working for the closure of partnerships with prestigious local and international companies with which it intends to continue developing its business, with the aim of creating an integrated service in Italy, as from the beginning the two partners created network and synergies on the territory with associations, competitors and industry players to achieve the results obtained so far.
