Who said you need ten years work experience to create your own business or even a Computer Science PhD to have innovative ideas? Not this young Belgian team of students!
This is happening in Brussels, the heart of Europe. Eleven students with different backgrounds are challenging themselves and the entire industry by launching their #NewTech Startup.
Currently, environmental issues are at the very center of many fierce debates. Nevertheless, the lack of motivation is often an obstacle to change our habits for the better. Like Greta Thunberg said, the one thing we need more than hope is action. To be part of the action, as should everyone in fact, they decided to combine technology and gamification in order to reach the “zero waste” objective in big company buildings. Their project consists of a connected trash can that weighs rubbish to show in real-time the real ecological impact of said companies.
“By being more conscious about our daily non-ecological habits, we can easily change them without turning the world upside down.”Filip Dudycz, young entrepreneur
The potential of these young ones is undeniable. Still in construction of their business model, they managed to win the the local PechaKucha 20×20 pitch contest and a prize worth one thousand euros.
So young but yet so curious, the eleven students are the living proof that entrepreneurship is a state of mind. They are now eagerly looking for partners and experts to build this great idea!
