Business Model


There are two business models that we are validating: IPR and Commerce model. IPR: the patent can be licensed to businesses that manage large volumes of disposable packaging, as potential clients are FMCGs and packaging companies. Targeting the reusable containers market, the technology can be licensed to outdoor, sport, lifestyle or houseware companies. Commerce: we envision the development of a powerful brand that promotes a reusability behavior through a line of exceptionally functional reusable containers, targeting both B2B and B2C.

Target


Through the course of the Accelerator we aim to validate which of the outlined business models is more feasible to focus on and what the potential product market fit for our technology is. This entails conducting an in-depth research on the market, patentability and prototyping with different forms and materials. In addition, we plan to incorporate the company and develop an appealing brand identity with relevant visual communication and online presence.
