Blue Tulip Awards in the category Climate and Energy
On May 27, we met the 19 other startups of the
third generation of Blue Tulip Awards
in the category of climate and energy to Walk the Talk.
What is the Walk the Talk?
The Walk the Talk consisted of three ten-minute speed dating rounds. In these ten minutes, it was required to briefly introduce our product to the jury members again, to elaborate on the evaluation categories and to survive the rounds of questions.
The evaluation criteria were, in addition to
impact and business model, scalability and innovativeness
With our non-profit business model, we often appear a little exotic at first glance. For us, the first step is to reduce the complexities of the problems we face and explain our solutions step by step - why we do what we do and how exactly.
With detect | remove | reuse, we not only present a comprehensive solution to the global challenges surrounding the issue of water pollution with microplastics and micropollutants. Also, we show that it is already possible to close cycles in an economically and ecologically beneficial way for all parties involved in the water sector - despite increasing pollution and advancing climate change, and to make valuable contributions to achieving the sustainability goals in a wide range of areas.
If you would like to take a look at our pitch video, you find it here.
Where do we go from here?
We march towards the finals with the other top 5 innovations - Run the Show is on June 17.
During Run the Show, we will join the other finalists in a talk show to present our innovations for waters without microplastics and micropollutants and face a final round of questions from the jury.
At the end of this day, the long-awaited winners will also be announced.
You can also tune into the finals and register here. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
