OUR STARTUPS

Barefoot is a startup studio that transforms B2B2C problems into new proven online businesses with a better probability of success than regular startups. We diversify entrepreneurial risks over a funnel of projects on which we apply the same methodology that we improve with the experience. We identify synergies and share learnings across projects and people. Once the potential has been demonstrated on a market with minimum an European potential, we scale as far as we can. The created value is fairly shared among all stakeholders.

As a fleet manager, you are concerned with safety and cost management? Freeedrive is an app that helps preventing the 23% of car accidents due to texting while allowing you to save up to €25k per year on a fleet of 100 vehicles, mainly on insurance costs. When the application recognizes that the phone’s bluetooth is paired with the car, it automatically blocks disturbing notifications and access to all apps except those that you allow. You manage centrally all authorizations and reported exceptions. The information is securely and privately stored on the platform to demonstrate a safer driving behavior to any corporate stakeholder (ISO norming, insurance company,…)
