Nipote in Affitto – Grandson for rent

“Nipote in affitto” (Grandson for rent) is an innovative startup from SENEX. The idea of the “Nipote in affitto” service was born during the first lockdown, a complicated period especially for those who, isolated at home, did not have the technical and digital skills to keep in touch with their loved ones. So Senex founders created this service for all people who need technical support and want to learn how to use computers and mobile phones.

How the service works: the grandson goes to an elder home in order to help him/her solve technical problems and teaches the elder how to use digital devices.

This can even become a personalized course.

Year(s): 2021
