Peerby and Innoboost search for untapped value

Finding paying customers for your sustainable product or service is not always easy. Brainstorming on possible underlying needs can help you to find a target group and rephrase your value proposition. But sometimes, this is easier said than done. When we set up a facebook panel for Peerby to see if our new ideas were tackling underlying needs, their community told us this is not what they are waiting for. So, now what?

It’s modular design - including connected technology to see if components are wo

Boska & Innoboost team up for positive impact

With increasing attention for the circular economy, more and more companies are aware that our way of consuming is reaching its limits. This year earth-overshoot-day already took place on August 8, meaning that on this day we used more of nature than the planet can renew in a whole year. It makes you think: What heritage am I passing on to the next generation? And what can I do to leave a positive impact on this planet? What is your legacy for the next generation? Over the past months Innoboost and the TUDelft have developed a six step methodology to get to a circular business. In this blog we share the learnings of our project with Boska Holland in which we learned a lot on the first buildi
