About

Has it ever happened that you had an idea but weren't even able to attempt developing a solution for it? We are presenting a solution that will help people turn their ideas and dreams into reality.

Fifthub is a social networking platform that allows you to publish your ideas and find the right people who can help you realize your visions. Additionally, you can find and adhere to interesting projects matching your skills, talent, and expertise.

Fifthub was born from a real and personal necessity to create many small virtual hubs in order to find professionals who are willing and capable of experimenting. The goal is to develop unique ideas and projects.

For our next step, we began brainstorming to structure all the needed features to guarantee ideal user experience, and preserving user ideas and contributions/tasks within a project.

Intellectual Property Protection - Your ideas and/or your contribution to the project of your choice are safe with us. Every 15 days, all team members must log in and confirm their project contribution(s). Otherwise, they are excluded from the project. All sensitive and personal data, such as name, surname, photo, etc., are only visible for project members. This allows website usage with the highest level of privacy.

You can always download the contract in the relevant section. At anytime of your choosing, you can protect your idea and contribution to the project you develop.

We take care of your work and skills. For better protection, we have a system of mandatory project validation and the option of pre-defining equities within the project. Moreover, you define the life of the intellectual property agreement with other fifthubbers working on the project. Our standard period is one year, and it could be modified t (delete) up to five years, pending your partner(s) agreement.

Automatic Intelligent Matching System - Our software will do the job for you by finding projects and users matching your needs. You also have the chance to add filters and/or save endless manual searches. You will not waste your precious time with us. Just wait for the perfect fifthubs or fifthubbers (projects or users).

All your profits, if it were to turn into a business, are divided amongst all participants, regardless of who launched the project. Otherwise, you could define and/or accept different percentages by setting equities. The equities can be changed at any time upon pending all team members’ agreement.

Every 15 days, all team members are obligated to login and confirm their project contribution(s). 

You will be excluded from the project and lose all your rights (while obligated to respect the intellectual property contract) in case of: 

  • failure to validate every 15 days. (Reminders are sent via email.)
  • a majority (51%) of fifthubbers within a project will declare that you are not contributing to the project. 

Before joining or creating a project, your identity will need to be verified. We use a well-known and trusted third-party service. We advise you, anyway, to create virtual relationships and real ones also outside of our platform with the people you intend to collaborate with. Have a video-chat, send them an email, have a coffee or a beer together if possible.

We take care of your security. We secure your ideas and your projects. Our Blockchange technology is a complex server-side script that continuously changes the webpages' URLs in different blocks.

Once we have the platform up and running, and populated with many users creating and developing projects, we will seek crowdfunding measures to provide new features aimed at boosting your ideas.

 The next step will be to create a section dedicated to a direct link with us and other startuppers in order to be able to provide you all the necessary advice enabling the transformation of your fifthub into a real business 

Subsequently, we will integrate a crowdfunding support mechanism to accelerate the fifthubs. In this section, various hubs will insert their projects and start a fundraising campaign according to the best-known and most reliable services. 

We will provide physical spaces where you can cultivate your relations and contact others more solidly and productively, offering solutions cohabiting with preexisting spaces.

You can sign-up for FREE and read about all fifthubs and fifthubbers. For 30€/year, you will be able to: 

  • develop your idea 
  • collaborate with another individual’s project 
  • use Intellectual Property Protection

* If preferred, we will add your picture and social links on our wall/thanks page.

The platform will go live in October and become unlocked upon reaching 5,000 users (free and/or paying).

You will nonetheless participate in a fantastic experience and mostly interact with many people, establishing useful contacts for your current profession. 

Fifthub is also a means of giving value to your personal brand as many people will be able to see and appreciate your professionalism and competence.   

We are establishing partnerships with various companies from different sectors. Your fifthub can enable you to present your project to a company, and evolve your dream and vision into a stable job full of satisfaction.

Fifthub is a start-up born in 2019 by three co-owner: Giacomo, Matteo, and Matteo.

  • Giacomo is our CEO. A coding enthusiast. He spent several years working as a project manager on racing-cars (including Indy and Formula 1). 
  • Matteo is a lawyer dealing with contract law. He loves technology, studying different cultures, and travelling with his motorcycle.
  • The other Matteo is an accountant who is involved in corporate and tax consultancy. He is an all-round athlete, that needs to recover energy from his "boring" job.
  • Some good freelancers (graphics, video and coding) from across the globe.

Risks and challenges

Very excited about our project, we believe it can be a great tool for everyone. We worked hard in terms of contracts, security and providing the best user experience.
The rest depends on how many users we can reach, as success will be given by the amount of active profiles populating the platform. This is why we will allocate 50% of this crowdfunding on marketing.
No worries if you do not want to bid on this project and wish to see if we are successful or not. Although you can enormously boost our by subscribing to our mailing list and/or sharing our project.
Thank you in advance!
