Gender-based discrimination is still prevalent worldwide – particularly in agriculture, where women are disadvantaged concerning access to education, job opportunities and arable land. KurkuMama cooperates closely with women farmers in Costa Rica to produce a drinking powder for Curcuma Latte. In contrast to the traditional ayurvedic recipe we add roasted and ground cashews. This ensures a fast and easy preparation (even without milk!) and a creamy drinking experience. By establishing this superfood beverage in Germany, we strive to empower women in agriculture in Latin America and contribute to a healthy lifestyle in Germany.

Many car workshops are not digitalised yet. A lot of paperwork, an inflexible schedule system, and the gaps in the repair documentation (e.g., with respect to material used) are common issues car workshop have to deal with on a daily basis, as it all leads to a loss of money. The vision WorkAll is to digitise and simplify the entire process in the car workshop from the first customer contact, to the service at the car itself and finally up to invoicing introducing a car workshop specific software. By using this software, the car workshop saves time, reaches higher productivity and efficiency levels and thus can operate more sustainably.
