We kick off our Partners in Mission series with, tataaa, Saatgutkonfetti (translated: seed confetti). With it, we direct our gaze to the beautiful moments in life. Even if there are many things that may make you pensive, sad and mournful. The good moments with lovable fellow human beings should be appreciated and celebrated! Next time maybe with colorful seed confetti...and popcorn?
Popcorn meets confetti or Let's get this party started
We first met Saatgutkonfetti (in the form of co-founder Katja) at the startup competition 'Get in the Ring - Impact'. In the local competition round in Berlin (virtual at that time) Katrin Schuhen pitched vision, business model and technology of Wasser 3.0 - we won the voting of the jury as well as the audience. An amazing success for us in our first founding year and the ticket to the European final, which took place in November in The Hague - another historic moment in the life of Wasser 3.0 and also a truly unique experience for Katrin.
First virtually and then in real life, we thus got to know Katja, who was part of the jury as an experienced and successful impact founder. We immediately swam on the same wavelength. On the one hand, our microplastic agglomerates, which we often describe as popcorn-like when we don't have any pictures at hand. On the other, sustainable confetti. Together, we're all about biodiversity conservation and entrepreneurship for people and nature.
For biodiversity - with fun
A really good party needs a handful of confetti! That's probably what Philip, Chris and Katja thought when they founded the start-up Saatgutkonfetti in 2018. Their goal is to run a sustainable, agile, social and innovative company.
The focus of their work is nature. They want to work with it and educate about the importance of biodiversity - doing it in a fun and sustainable confetti way. Our planet offers a huge biodiversity and it is important to preserve and protect it. Because this diversity of plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms contributes to the life of our planet and therefore also of us humans.
Celebrate, throw confetti and where does nature come into play here? Simple. Seed confetti is not ordinary confetti. Because that is sometimes even made of aluminum and pollutes the environment a lot. Seed confetti is compostable confetti with the seeds of up to 23 native wild plant species. A contribution to biodiversity, bees and, above all, lots of fun. When celebrating with seed confetti, people celebrate themselves first and nature second. There is no waste, but plant growth!
If you want to make your next celebration colorful and sustainable, you now know a good address. Celebrate life and let flowers sprout!
Fun with an educational mission or educational mission with fun?
Even if you are a company looking for a colorful and sustainable giveaway, you might now have a good option for your next event - and will soon be just as happy as we are about our cooperation with Saatgutkonfetti!
Those who visited us at our booth and in the Innovation Forum Stop Microplastics Pollution! at this year's Filtech may have already spotted them. Little bags of - seed confetti. For us, a great giveaway that reflects our own values for biodiversity conservation in a colorful and fun way! We will certainly have it with us at our next events, where we will be on tour with our digital-real education space WASoMI. We are already looking forward to seeing the joy in people's eyes as they first marvel at our 'popcorn agglomerates' and then at seed confetti!
Due to their motto "Make Friends with Plants", Saatgutkonfetti have definitely won us as friends! We say thank you and look forward to our next meeting!
