In the last quarter of 2017, two friends, Ola and Tobi came to the idea of creating a marketplace for current/recent university students who had accumulated clutter of valuable items over their period of study. The idea came from the frustration of hoarding things they’ve kept since finishing their studies and leaving the property they lived in together. Keeping in mind majority of these items would be more beneficial for other students. As Innovators striving to get their idea validated by getting into the O2 Telefonica’s digital and environmental focused programme, The Environment Now – the duo got the support they needed, built their product and released it to their audience in late 2018.

They named it GYRE, a free mobile app for users to buy, sell and swap underused and unwanted items locally within their geographic community. The app provides a quick, safe and convenient way to list items and find great deals on desired items. As an advocate of the sharing ecosystem, they aim to help users reveal, access and maximise true full value of their everyday products by connecting interested people.
