Marinanow is an online portal that allows sailors to search for places to moor their boats in marinas, compare prices between varyious marinas and book online. The current systems for booking places for private boats in marinas both in the mediterranean and worldwide is outdated and complicated.
There is no one unified system for managing bookings so owners of boats currently have to search for phone numbers of directors of the marina, overcome language and time difference and ring them up to check for and reserve places. If that marina is full, or the director is difficult to reach, the boat owners have to search again for nearby ports.
Marinanow solves this problem by using proven business models from the hotel and home rental industry. It offers the ability to book online, automatically from any port in the world using one site (a similar concept to sites like hotels.com).
It also allows the “subleasing” of berths that have long term bookings (a similar concept to airbnb). The team is made up of four partners who have a vast experience in the marina industry as well as programming, internet companies and Startups.
They have been accepted into an incubator and raised money from an accelerator programme and are now looking for angels to coinvest with United Ventures, an Italian VC firm. The site and mobile apps are online and fully functional and last summer, the team invested a small amount in marketing to test the product.

Eyes of Rome
Back in 2005, three friends Emiliano, Denis and Francesco shared a deep passion for the city of Rome and the Vatican city. This small group of friends expanded to include a number of young and enthusiastic local art lovers.
From our meetings, a simple idea emerged: art is a lot of fun, and we wanted to share it with the world. The Eyes of Rome Association was started as a “Frienpany” (a company of friends) as we like to call it.
There was no boss but instead, authority and duties were shared in turns. Eyes of Rome started giving 3 classic tours: The Vatican Museums tour, The Colosseum tour and the City Walking tour, but the associates – we prefer to call ourselves story-tellers – were eager to study and put together more off-the beaten path itineraries and unconventional ways of touring.
