At October 15, 2014 the CleanLaunchpad national final of Italy took place. The Jury announced the three finalists for the CleanLaunchpad Grand EU Final 2014 in Valencia. One of them is RiUp.
What is RiUp about?
RiUp is a new platform to deal with the actual environmental issue making affordable serial and functional objects of green design to everyone. In this way, people will have the opportunity to assemble the objects at home by themselves.
We like the idea of growing with the community to give a second life to industrial scraps.
What did the national Jury think of your idea?
RIUp was evaluated as a valuable idea able to compete in the EU final. We received interesting feedbacks about possible new market opportunities and competitive advantages to focus on.
What are your expectations of the Innovation Festival?
We would like to take advantage of this big occasion to do networking and to meet investors.
We dream to make green design furniture affordable to the most and to weaken the environmental impact of the multi-materials scraps.
