Archeo Cammini and Innova: two Creators of Transformative Experiences talk about themselves
Watch the interview in full
Let’s start the article of the week: Archeo Cammini and Innova: two Creators of Transformative Experiences talk about themselves
The two Creators participated in a past edition of the Pilot Program and were thrilled with how things turned out, and both are curious about future interactions, outcomes, and possibilities resulting from the growth and transformation they are gradually undertaking. Barbara and Cinzia (Cinzia is not currently participating in the project), from Innova, participated in the Apical Facebook Community’s “Pilots in talk” event along with Marina from Archeo Cammini.
If you would like to know what questions, concerns, and solutions Creators like you have that offer Transformative Experiences, you can find out by clicking here and reading the double interview article and/or watching the recording of the Facebook Live!
In fact, during the Pilots in talk a few weeks ago, they met live on Apical’s FB Community to compare notes and talk about their projects, going over the stages of their journeys and identifying some commonalities about the difficulties they faced.
Both have found the Pilot Program training and support provided by Apical to be a great help, especially in the use and application of technology in the marketing and business and identity definition of their projects.
Here are the highlights of the live broadcast, captured later in the article:
Innova – The Project
Archeo Cammini – What the project is about and how it came about

In our opinion, the experiences proposed by Archeo Cammini and Innova are truly unique, transformative, and very interesting and maybe, who knows, one day they will surprise us with some collaboration!

Travel Cloud’s Go-Live
The second new feature of the week is Travel Cloud’s Go-Live: we were excited to be able to announce that starting Thursday, August 4, we will be live with Travel Cloud!
Travel Cloud is a project focused on ethical and responsible tourism issues and is focused on smaller destinations and educational experiences. The values embraced by Travel Cloud represent the reasons why Apical chose to embrace the project, from the creation of a new website, through which tailor-made trips to all destinations around the world will be communicated, to marketing support.
Travel Cloud also represents an opportunity for Creators in our Community: very interesting collaborations can be forged in the future through common visions such as sustainability, educational dimensions and transformation .

We help talents and ideas turn into successful entrepreneurial projects through 8 sprints (one every 15 days) and weekly checkpoints for the duration of 16 weeks. The creation and development of transformative and authentic experiences as a form of social innovation, which have the power to transform the lives of people and the territories they traverse by contaminating their futures, requires a professional, smart and fast working method. The Pilot Program is designed specifically to support projects (emerging or established) who need to grow and be able to make the best use of technology to develop their business idea and bring it to success in a sustainable way, through collective learning, startup methodology and all our experience in the travel world. All services and our support are yours for 6 months, at the end you can decide to continue to grow and work with us or you are free* to go back to work on your own.

In fact, we did not reach the maximum number of participants by the end of July as we had hoped, so applications to register remain open! These are the last weeks during which you can decide to participate our training program, there are the last two places left!
