Oscar Pierre On Itnig Podcast & Startups News

At Itnig, we know it’s hard to keep up with all the news and updates flying around. This month, we had the opportunity to have a talk with Oscar Pierre, from Badi.

Oscar Pierre (Badi) Itnig Podcast

In this week’s podcast, we talk about Badi, the startup considered by some as the Tinder of the flatmates. Carlos Pierre tells us how he plans to become the all-in-one room renting solution.

The company has raised around €40M so far and it yet does not have a clear monetisation strategy as its main goal is to become the leading company in a sector traditionally led by agencies.

That’s not it, we have three other podcasts for you to listen!

Startup Inside Stories Podcast

#113: Eloi Gómez, from Jeff

In this week’s podcast, we interview Eloi Gómez, from Jeff (formerly Mr Jeff). The company started as an online laundry and after a few tweaks and fine-tuning managed to open close to 2000 shops in just two years.

Last week the company announced the purchase of the personal training startup Entrenarme and the partnership with the hairdresser company Oh My Cut! Eloi takes the chance to explain how he plans to turn Jeff into the service superapp.

#114 : Alejandro Fresneda, from Mr.Noow

In this week’s podcast, we take a look at restaurant preorders targetting lunches, an untapped business by the big delivery players. Alejandro Fresneda, founder of Mr. Noow, comes to our studio to explain to us how this works and how they acquire customers with coupons.

We took this chance to discuss how to balance customer-base growth versus revenue maximisation per user in the long run.

#115 : Juan Castillo, from Guruwalk

In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the Free Tours. We invited Juan Castillo, founder and CEO at Guruwalk to explain to us how his company monetizes tours based on tips.

Juan believes his market is monopolistic so there can only be one player and he thinks Guruwalk has the recipe for it.
