Transactional, vertical and mobile marketplaces
500 Markets is a startup that creates and manages vertical mobile marketplaces focused on monetization of 2nd hand articles, providing users a safety, trust and convenience environment.
Unlike other classified ads apps operators (Wallapop, Milanuncios, Vibbo,…), it integrates the value chain within the app in a closed platform allowing the posting of listings, a controlled communication channel via chat between offer and demand, ‘escrow’ payments, professional logistic service and return guarantee for buyer protection in case the purchased item does not meet the advertised condition.
Interested in sectors with the following specifications:
• Large volume of potential users, both sellers and buyers.
• Real chance to acquire and convert at low costs.
• Abundance of high average value products and/or potential to generate transactions recurrency.
• Specific community character of users keen on a concrete theme.
Currently (June’17) managing BKIE, leader marketplace in Spain for cycling lovers and MOOMS, kids and baby articles.

What is Graphene?
It is defined as a lattice of carbon atoms united by links that are an atom space apart: ¨each time you write with a pencil on a sheet of paper, you can think of it as producing graphene.¨ The structure of graphite is composed of weak-linked layers, that when are separated create lattices of graphene. The name provides the interchange – in the term graphite – of suffixes: “ite” to “ene”: each of the carbons with double bonds.
Presentation of the Company
Antecedent: The idea came from the interest in commercializing and industrializing research carried out during almost 10 years on graphene by the research group lead by Prof. Rosa Menendez of the Instituto del Carbon de Asturias (INCAR) of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC).
The company project deals with the fabrication of graphene at an industrial scale with proprietary technology (licensed by INCAR-CSIC), at competitive prices and used for different applications and sectors.
The name GRAPHENASTUR is related to the product like it´s implementation, registering this brand of product.
Location: Social Headquarters
There are many reasons for locating the company in the Principado de Asturias: its tradtion with the elemental base of graphene, carbon; the presence of suppliers of raw materials like tar and coke; it´s capacity for reindustrializing mineral bowls; the necessity of implanting high-tech companies; the multidisciplinary formation of its techniques; the strong investment in the last years in its R+D at an elevated level; and of course, the decision of the INCAR researchers. The registered office address of the company is located in Oviedo, Calle Santa Susana Nº1 Entresuelo.
GRAPHENASTUR expects to situate itself in the midterm as a referent in the production of graphene materials, of high quality, propelling commercial services, closely working with clients, and betting on an agreement with the environment.
The critical factor is the introduction of graphene materials in the marketplace.
Product quality is important and its cost (obtained by volumes of production that reduce cost of the process); not all graphene is equal.
The supply of raw materials is no problem due to the abundance of local suppliers.
GRAPHENASTUR´s strategy will rely on the agreements with INCAR-CSIC as much as for the transfer as well as for continued development of new products and the training of workers.
LOVE AND CHILD
Love and Child is a company focused on infants. In actuality, we commercialize infant fashion, schoolchildren materials, and gifts; however, we are developing new product lines related to infant literature and the audiovisual world. Our mission is to create products capable of generating an emotional link between adults and children, that attract customers by their fresh and fun designs, always in line with this driving thread that represents the main representatives of the brand, Lua and Marcos.
Technology – Product/Service Soulutions
Our products don´t require the use of intensive technology. Our ¨solutions¨ or our differentiation radiates from the designs and messages that we try to transmit with all our products.
Distribution and Marketing
Distribution – all of our merchandise is managed through one of our warehouses located in Guadalajara (neutral partner), that offers us a very competitive national flat rate shipping, and good prices passed to the majority. In both cases we have a logistical cost clearly inferior to the cost of the market that companies, like SEUR, TNT, or Envialia, offer.
Marketing – our priority, in order to become public, is to locate our product in stores (online as well as offline) of franchises like El Corte Ingles, FNAC, Carlin, etc. Thanks to our effort and commercial abilities, we are being able to reach brand diffusion although it isn´t obvious yet as a new company. Online, we are making ads for reputable blogs, we are adding content to our social networks, and are working in depth the SEO. Some of our production is assigned to some of the main stores in our network, like Amazon, Privalia, Mamuki, etc. We haven´t gotten an inversion in SEM, to this day, considering that we consider the brand not sufficiently visible for it and that there exists a lot of competition in the areas in which you search for our clothing. Confronting successfully the bidding system of Google would require a large investment, that at the present time, we prefer to go towards commercial action in sales points.
Every day in every city around the world there are thousands of professionals working outside a “regular” office. Most of them end up in cafeterias trying to connect to their wifi. At the same time, in the same cities, there are hundreds on unoccupied spaces in hotels, not included in any inventory and generating NO REVENUE.
Worktel is the first online platform allowing people to work in more places and spaces near them, in a flexible way, in a nice professional environment, by the hour and at a fraction of the cost of a regular office.
At the same time Worktel creates an opportunity for the hotel industry to increase revenues and engagement with a new customer
