Create the future 2016 – Wir stellen uns dem Wettbewerb

Als gemeinwohlorientierte Organisation auch wirtschaftlich überlebensfähig zu sein, das ist eine unserer Grundideen bei Uwezo Engineering. Darum scheuen wir auch nicht den Vergleich mit anderen – und einen “Innovations-Wettbewerb” können wir uns schon gleich gar nicht entgehen lassen.
Create The Future ist ein solcher Wettbewerb, der von NASA Tech Brief seit 2002 ausgerichet wird und mit mehr als 10.000 Teilnehmern jedes Jahr zu einer echten Größe in der Szene geworden ist. Da wollen wir natürlich nicht fehlen und haben in diesem Jahr unser erstes Patent, die mobile Mini-Müllverbrennungsanlage µW2E, ins Rennen geschickt.
Und Achtung, jetzt kommt der Aufruf zur Mithilfe: Wenn Ihr das Konzept der µW2E gut findet, dann stimmt hier für uns ab und erzählt es weiter!
Denn “Wer die Welt verbessern will, braucht die Menschen” und wir brauchen Euch 🙂






Das erste Patent ist angemeldet

When Loyal and his wife, my dear friend Astrid, came back from their 1 year road trip all across Africa, he told me “I got a business idea”.

Muell

In so many places they both were shocked by the huge amount of garbage, municipal waste lying around all over the place, eaten by animals, polluting the water. So the “problem to solve” was obvious: how to get rid of that waste, as sustainable and fair as possible.

He came up with the fancy sounding idea of a high efficient mini mobile waste combustor, fitting on a euro-pallet, feedable with nearly everything except metal, producing electricity and a cement ingredient.

I thought “Wow that would be fucking awesome! It would make people WANT to dispose the waste, not only for getting rid of it and it’s damage, but also for getting  electricity! Electricity where no or no reliable infrastructure is available. Could be used in developing countries as well as in conflict areas (like this).”

mW2E

Now getting back to the headline of this post (and not telling the whole company story…):

The patent is registered, accepted and approved by the patent office! Yesterday we became the notification that it is now officially published.

I would say, let’s have a really good lunch together to celebrate, and if YOU are production industry, interested in solving problems like thisthis and this: lets have a chat.

Our First ‘Official’ Letter

The installation of the company name label on Loyal’s letter-box now proves successful: our first mail!

FirstLetter

And how could it be otherwise, a bill… from our notary.

Talking about him: Dear Dr. R., let’s have a phone call on Monday. My first name is spelled with a ‘c’. Especially in accredited documents.

Besuch bei der IHK Gründerberatung

Getting up before 6. Temperature below 3•C. 1.5h Autobahn to Karlsruhe. Not my preferred morning scenario, but thanks to two green teas at the Laib&Leben at Parckoffice and the nice&competent Ms. Schmid at IHK it turned out quite well. If you are founding a company in the area, check this out! So far Karlsruhe seams to be a good choice as registered seat. Btw: [urgent action] put company name lable on Loyal’s letterbox.
