Meet Matteo Ghedini, Founder of Croqqer, the App that helps you rediscover the value of community

We catch up with Matteo Ghedini, the Founder of Croqqer, who came to BSL as a guest speaker back in June for one of our Master in International Business classes.

How was your overall experience?

Very positive and fulfilling. It’s fundamental to prepare people to become entrepreneurs and professionals, especially when they’re smart, talented and with a big potential. Sharing my experience allowed me to contribute to that, in a very pragmatic and open way, which students seemed to really appreciate.

 What kind of questions did you get from our students?

Students had two types of questions. The first was more strategic and aimed at digging deeper on topics such as how to shift from idea generation to execution, the key elements of a business plan and suggestions on how to find investors. The second type of questions was more operative and aimed at understanding in detail my business and how it works. Clearly, in both cases students had in mind their business idea and tried to “translate” best practices and mistakes into their own case.

What surprised you the most?

Most of the students were pragmatic and smart. They quickly understood my business and experience. There was a clear attitude to learn from others, replicating best practices and success stories, and understanding how to best avoid mistakes and failures. They are aware that real life is vastly different from the theory that is discussed in class. This is a key starting point to help them effectively put in practice what they learn.


About Matteo Ghedini

I believe in people and local entrepreneurship.

And I believe that business should be a driving force for good – good for people, the planet and the economy.

I founded Croqqer because it has a massive transformative purpose: re-think how everyday jobs are done.
And we want to do it improving local economy and having positive social impacts.
