- Project 4 - What if that innovation could shake the whole dairy industry?
Milk is one of the most consumed beverages in the world, existing in three forms: liquid, powder and concentrate. Despite a global market of nine hundred billion dollars a year, what this company invented has never been realised. The first dehydrated, solid and thermoformable milk. After extensive research, this patent-pending formula solves many problems: consumption time, cold chain, storage, offering individual dosage. This formula avoids the problem of recycling capsules and benefits from a very competitive manufacturing price. The thermoforming process makes it possible to use it as a new communication medium for major brands and institutions.
- Project 5 - Which score has your product ?
Indoor air is 8 times more polluted than outdoor air and it represents the most important impact on our health.
Here comes the international "Air Label Score" certification which guarantees the best information on the risk of toxicity of non-food products in the air. Each tested product obtains a score ranging from A+ (very low emissions) to C (high emissions).
Revenue is growing since 2019 over 220% on an annual basis and our 2021 Ebitda is at +28%. The company has more than 50 satisfied clients including SC Johnson, Henkel, Colgate-Palmolive, Intermarché, Leclerc,...It's time to accelerate, that's why they are looking for funding to develop their rapid international growth.
- Project 6 - The dietician in your pocket!
20% of the world population is suffering from food intolerances, and this number is growing 4x faster than the total population. These people are forced to cook every meal themselves, but despite all their efforts, the smallest mistake can lead to serious physical reactions. This company launched an app that helps people with dietary restrictions in their cooking experience by personalizing any recipe to their needs. The algorithm discovers the forbidden ingredients for the user, replaces them with alternatives and adapts the whole recipe so that the user can now start cooking (almost) the same recipe but completely safe for them. Their closed beta test with 150 users during two months showed very positive results, proving marketing validation and determining willingness to pay.
