No one can get enough of social networking. We spend hours on end connecting with people and sharing our most precious memories. Matteo Achilli is a 22-year old Italian in business studies who has created a new, LinkedIn-like, social network that's all about your career – Egomnia.
Achilli founded Egomnia in his first year of college, and the social platform is so popular in Europe that a magazine has called him the Italian Mark Zuckerberg. Egomnia matches employers to job applicants according to the job requirements and the employees' skills.
Egomnia currently has more than 250,000 users, with 700 companies using the site to find the most suitable candidates. Even though Achilli is still a student, he thinks big: the creator of Egomnia wants to make Google and Microsoft partners.
Achilli was helped by student coders to create an algorithm with money his father has helped to acquire. Achilli's school, the Bocconi University, was the first site that gave Egomnia tremendous support. On Egomnia's launch day, the site had 1,000 students and 20 companies.
An idea itself is not enough if there's no spotlight. Egomnia achieved its big success when the Italian magazine, Panorama, put Achilli on the cover, calling him the “Italian Zuckerberg.” Since then, everyone wants to know who this Italian Zuckerberg is.
“Now we are writing the history of the internet. The real experts are the young people, people who don't have white hair,” Achilli said to the BBC. On his success at this early age, he said, “It's a very real innovation that a 22-year-old is doing this. At the beginning I thought my young age was not good, now I understand that my young age is my success.”
