Description

A German startup producing solar-powered, IoT-interconnected smart waste bins is looking for investors and trade intermediaries. The waste bin technology utilizes ultrasonic fill-level smart sensors that monitor waste accumulation and deliver real-time updates through an integrated software solution. The company can thus provide its municipal and commercial clients with analytics that can be used for data-driven decision making in waste management. The interactive smart waste management solution can help optimize waste collection routes, pick-up frequencies, and vehicle load handling. The sensors utilize either A) NBT-IoT or B) LoRa WAN / Sigfox networks, whereas a Lora WAN module can always be added to option A. The use cases for the smart bins are vast, since they can be deployed wherever traditional waste bins are deployed. Among the possible end-users of the system are cities and municipalities, university campuses, sports stadiums, industrial parks, supermarkets, hospitals and gas stations – practically any organization that produces waste and intends to improve its waste management system. The company is forecasting an estimated valuation of over €350 million by the end of 2023. It currently is in the process of a capital raise in order to make meaningful gains on its delivery commitments. Thus, the company is seeking investors under a financial agreement in order to scale up its production capacity. Besides, the company is always on the lookout for strategic cooperations globally with trade intermediaries under distribution services agreements.
