WeCo participated in the Climate KIC live-pitch session
On Wednesday July 15, WeCo participated in the Climate KIC live-pitch session, which offered an insight into start-ups dealing with water innovations among others. Deal Stream (Episode 3) presents some of the sharpest minds and teams with the latest cleantech investment opportunities from across Climate-KIC’s pan-European community of entrepreneurs.
The Climate KIC investor marketplace is the most comprehensive overview of investment opportunities into early stages startups. It represents more than 2000 climate-positive companies incubated and 278 partners. In this way, this platform provides a link between investors and start-ups in a wide range of sectors.
Cécile Dekeuwer, WeCo’s CEO, had the opportunity to present its toilets technology, solutions and growth perspective. Indeed, WeCo is an innovative alternative to chemical and dry toilets: they combine water and costs savings, user comfort, flexibility and hygiene. Waste water is recycled on site thanks to an electrolysis system which enables infinite water reuse. To develop its sales in Europe and abroad, WeCo counts on the market opportunities (innovative toilets market will represent 6 billions USD by 2030 according to the BCG) and on its 2 million euros fundraising in 2020. The latter will aim at developing WeCo’s sales force, sales in emerging countries as well as providing rental services. In addition, WeCo is about to develop its unique technology for train toilets, a highly promising market.
