Second prize for NO!W, at Impact2 World Award 2016

On November 22, NO!W No Waste was selected by So In So Good among ten other social and green startups to participate to Impact World Award. A few months after the idea was born, this was the first time NO!W No Waste was revealed to the public!

What is Impact² World Award?

Every year, Le Comptoir de l’Innovation organizes at Paris City Hall the Impact² World Forum, also known as the Davos of the New Economy. This event gathers for 3 days more than 1500 participants from 50 countries around the world.

On this occasion, the Impact² World Award for Green and Social Startups rewards outstanding initiatives that tackle today’s most pressing social challenges in 20 countries worldwide.

So In So Good co-organises with W Hub the pre-selection in Hong Kong to select the social start-up that will participate in the final in Paris in March 2017.

One week to prepare to convince the jury!

This was a great opportunity to tie together a sound business plan. So we worked on the financial projections, the market estimations etc.

This was an amazing chance to:

  • Get feedback from the public and the jury. We were delighted to see the interest from people for Zero Waste movement. Everyone was very curious about the reusable and compostable products we presented. We also received very instructive feedback from a very diversified jury (experts both in startups and in social/green missions). We were notably advised to produce our own Zero Waste products. More to come on this next year!
  • Get our first followers. This was also an ultimate test for the demand for these kinds of products. Among the 100 participants to the event, a lot became our first followers and we are very grateful. We are especially pleased as we won the public prize.
  • Win a free coworking space for 6 months. We are particularly thankful to Campfire which sponsored this prize! Thanks to them, we can keep working even harder on NO!W!
