The goal of WeBackpack is to create a central digital home for the backpacker and digital nomad community around the world. Our all-in-one „travel & work“ social platform significantly simplifies the organizational process of travel planning by consolidating all important functions in one central location, enabling carefree travel and work. Among other things, this is realized by an AI-supported evaluation of user-generated content. WeBackpack captures value through bookings made via our partners on the platform and a subscription-based model for our users.

We are Jasmin, Vanessa, and Sophie – the founders of Boxie. With Boxie, learning about nutrition becomes a fun and exciting experience for children, as we offer different themed boxes that teach children about a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle in a child-friendly and fun way. The boxes contain various games, stories, and activities that can easily be integrated into everyday life. Our goal is that children become more self-confident and independent in regard to nutrition and to develop an awareness of a healthy lifestyle.

Our idea is to make shopping for clothes smarter and faster. Thus, our app will only show those clothes, that suit the clothing lines of our customers, based on Kibbe‘s philosophy. The Kibbe philosophy is about guiding people on how to use clothes as a tool to bring out the natural beauty of a person instead of making people look taller or thinner. The app‘s guidance makes shopping for our customers more targeted, sustainable and quicker. Our revenue will come from subscriptions and partnerships with clothing producers.

BayernConnectEd is all about the power of culture. As regional culture can have strong impact on functional areas such as marketing, distribution, and sales, we offer Bavarian courses. In our courses we share insights in the Bavarian dialect and culture, and by this help to connect people in intercultural work teams. BayernConnectEd is available online, i.e., as an app with gamification, and offline, i.e., through organized cultural events and language lessons. By this we also contribute to rising cultural awareness and passing on cultural knowledge in a positive format.

TvorchaBa‘s vision is to empower Ukrainian retirees by enabling them to augment their pensions through the sale of handmade products (mainly clothing and accessories). In order to reach a large group of potential buyers, TvrochaBa handels the sales for which it relies mainly on digital sales channels. Furthermore, TvrochaBa encourages communication between the generations by enabling direct exchange between buyers and retirees (producers).

GreenifyUp is a nutrition statistics platform that helps users make healthier food choices.

Moreover, GreenifyUp can notify its users when certain products are about to expire and thereby contribute to the sustainable use of foods.
