Amazing things Tommaso's made
After my career in academia as a circular economy and recycling expert, I started my first company, Swabit. Swabit is a proximity-based app to allow international students to meet like-minded people and discover more about their surroundings. In about one year, I built (hire/ nurture/ sometimes fire) a team of four developers and two digital marketers, and launched Swabit in three different Dutch universities. Currently, Swabit is used by Rotterdam municipality to advertise the cultural agenda of the city to the expats' community.

Alberto A. Altamirano Public Involvement Specialist at Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization recommended Byewaste where Tommaso is Co-Founder

Byewaste blends current trends of digitalization and sustainability to waste collection and community engagement. I find this to be a relevant topic in terms of sustainability and urban ecosystems. I met Francisco Rivera at the Techstars x Arcadis Demo Day, where I pitched. I have not engaged much with Francisco, but his narrative is impressive, and I believe Byewaste has the potential to impact an industry that is outdated and complex. Wishing Francisco and his team success in the application!

Chris Benson recommended Byewaste where Tommaso is Co-Founder

I worked with the Byewaste team at the Technical University of Delft from 2017-2019 and they showed two traits that will greatly help them on their Founder's Journey.

1. They are incredibly persistent: While many teams I work with claim 'passion', they have continued working on the problem of electronic waste for nearly 2 years now through many ups and downs. This trait of pushing through tough times because they are determined to solve a problem will be necessary for the years ahead.

2. They love to experiment and learn: Their idea has morphed considerably through many smaller trials, with some of their ideas that I thought were crazy actually working out. They take a methodical approach to start-up development and aren't afraid of data that goes against their initial hypotheses.

Ultimately the team is fun to work with and incredibly coachable, they will make a great fit in an accelerator program.
