Rumundu was formed by Stefano Cucca in 2013. He graduated from the University of Sassari with an Economics and Business degree; studied at the Business School of San Francisco and then spent most of his professional life growing companies. In 2012 his world changed. He took to his bike and cycled around the world. His mission was two fold: to explore how local people through local initiatives are driving social, economic and environmental change through social innovation and entrepreneurial endeavor in other parts of the world. His second mission was to bring back the best ideas of sustainable lifestyles and valuable connections with other people to help reverse the social and economic decline of his beloved island, Sardinia. After thirty-two thousand kilometers in three hundred and sixty-five cycling days across Europe, America, Asia, Oceania and Africa he returned, wrote a book (about to be published), launched a social network of like-minded people and started the first Social Innovation Summer School in Italy. Inspired by his ninety year old Grandmother’s question - "why are you are always in giru pà ru mundu?" (which translates to "why are you are always travelling around the world?"), he called his new venture, Rumundu.
