terrabiom selected as finalists for the Swiss Circular Economy Incubator

Terrabiom is taking yet another step towards becoming a sustainable business 4.0 :

We’re very proud to announce that we’ve been selected as a finalist for Switzerland’s first ever Circular Economy Incubator. This is a special team-milestone for us, since this was the first programme we’ve officially pitched for as a team with Eric & Christa, and our complementary visions have convinced the tough panel of judges from various fields (Keyword > Teamwork makes the dream work)

This programme is a pioneer initiative which aims to accelerate the transition of Switzerland to a Circular Economy and takes place in 4 swiss cities in parallel (Bern, Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich). It was put together by the swiss Impact Hubs, sanu durabilitas, and the Mava Foundation; and it acts as a catalyst to 26 selected projects which passed the jury’s tough judgement of contribution to a CE-transition of the country of cheese and chocolate from January - April 2019.

Besides giving us a lot of hands-on input on how to advance with terrabiom, we’re also receiving some serious media attention: Check out this article to meet all the 26 wonderful projects and learn more about the incubator, and we’ve also been featured on the iconic Swiss Startup Ticker.

The Incubator kicked off on 17.01. with an intro-session for all the Lausanne projects, and this week, we’ve started full-on with a whole day bringing together the Swiss Romande classes over market research and product design.

We’ve already been able to tweak some approaches quite fundamentally, and we’re super excited for the next 3 months with this crew. Stay tuned !
