CONTECH | Design and build platform for DIY’ers
Building platform helping with design and build for Do-it-Yourself-builders. Based on a customer’s personal design, we select the right DIY techniques and materials and deliver those as one pack to the customer’s home, including assembly instructions. The offering ranges from structural work of houses, to outdoor constructions such as garden offices or garden houses. The special sauce is a self-developed click-and-play wood construction system that filed for a patent in April 2020. We started selling the wood structure system as an MVP to the DIY builder in November 2020 to get first feedback. Thanks to the MVP, we got our first sales and aim to have a monthly revenue of €10K from the summer onwards. The response and interest from DIY’ers has confirmed our thesis and that’s why we are looking for funding to deliver on the product roadmap. 
€500K seed sought by August 2021 to build towards a milestone of €100K monthly revenue | Aiming for a series A of €2M to €3M to expand abroad by end of 2022.

Thanks to mobile charging infrastructure, electric car drivers can now park and charge anywhere they want. You just need to: ● order a charging session ● a mobile charging station comes to you ● no more hassle with cables ● in 30 minutes we will add 200km of range. It’s as easy as ordering pizza! We will accelerate EV adoption in the cities and support people to make green decisions for our planet.

MARTECH | Shopping assistant with shopping journey analytics
80% of consumers search for the best deal after making a purchasing decision, but waste a lot of time on dozens of fragmented platforms - for a sub-optimal result.

This solution consolidates the whole landscape, making the existing platforms redundant and improving the benefit program effectiveness with 500%. The value it offers consumers is a fully integrated experience. While they simply focus on googling the product they want, the startup does all the work in background to help them save €1,000/year. For brands, it can collect valuable data on the whole shopping journey, far beyond what they see on their own platforms.
Already partnering with dozens of benefit programs and acquired 25,000 user accounts while spending only €1,000 on ads | Product-market-fit found, excellent metrics and ready to scale | €300K sought (€150K already secured) - Preparing for a Series A by end 2022.

 

SaaS AI | Production Transparency driven Marketing (PTDM) and sales (PTDS)
The company helps SME manufacturers/brands of fashion and luxury items to become transparent and answer #whomademyclothes, or comply with upcoming ESG legislation. Unlike other solutions that only offer consultancy or build expensive custom made block chain solutions, the company offers an easy to onboard SaaS solution which offers tools to capture and manage data, and generate QR codes. The customer can scan these QR's to discover how, when, where and by whom each individual product was made. This increases the perceived value of the product and the buying motivation of the customer. Sharing the storytelling on social media generates free viral marketing. Finally, AI will advise SME's on how to improve their production transparency driven marketing and sales. 
Successful PoC tested with 6 pilot brands / Member of StartIt@KBC | Next step: building the MVP to go-to-market | €550K sought (€250k already secured by VLAIO).

 

TECH | No-code prototyping platform
Prototyping novel digital products and services is core to a wide range of companies: startups, digital design agencies, corporate innovation hubs, etc. Current prototyping tools enable anyone to design clickable user interfaces. However, deploying functional prototypes still requires extensive programming knowledge. The startup enables non-technical people to build functional and deployable prototypes without requiring programming experience. Existing designs are easily brought to live by linking them to the components of the company that add functionality (e.g. capturing user input, real time location tracking, etc.). The platform automatically tracks how users interact with these prototypes, enabling the prototype owners to quickly learn, iterate and improve their prototypes before going into production. 
Future spin-off from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel |Next step:  growth of the core team (consisting of two computer science PhDs) and consolidation of the product/market fit beyond its early adopter users (e.g. Université libre de Bruxelles) | €400k sought.
