2Hire, a Rome, Italy-based maker of a hardware device for people to manage a vehicle remotely, raised €600k in seed funding.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate production and industrialization of the product, as well as speed up software development.
Co-founded by Filippo Agostino, CEO, Andrea Verdelocco, iOS Developer, and Matteo Filippi, CTO, 2Hire develops a hardware device that allows people to manage their vehicle remotely. The device is installed in the standard OBD port, present in all cars, and allows to monitor the status of a vehicle in real time. In this way, the smartphone becomes the digital key of the vehicle.
The company completed the latest edition of LUISS ENLABS – the startup accelerator launched via a joint venture between LVenture Group and LUISS University – in May 2017.
