Jassim BenchenaaCrans Montana Ski Rental (Ski at Home)

> Founded 2015


1. What is your company’s product/service?
It's a ski rental store in Crans-Montana. We rent and sell skis and ski touring gear. We do home delivery with pre-booking online.

2. Where was it founded and where do you now have offices?
The shop started out as Ski at Home last year (2015) and during the year I partnered with Angel's Sports, an existing shop in Crans-Montana.

3. Number of employees at peak (and now)?
We are in total three employees in the company without counting all the friends and family who help out and support us.

4. What was the hardest thing about building the company?
The hardest part of starting a company is coming up with the idea and pitching it out to your friends.  

5. Where do you see your company in three years?
Well I hope we'll be in the same four walls as now. That we'll expand our clientèle, keep our place in the ski resort, and manage to draw more clients to our shop. I would like to expand the Ski at Home concept to other resorts.  

6. Do any other Ecolint alumni work with you?
Yes I kind of as two of my sisters who attended LGB have helped me out a lot.

7. In what ways (if any!) did your Ecolint education help you in founding a company?

I can't really say Ecolint helped out much as I left when I was 10 to go to boarding school in the UK!
