Startups of the Basel Incubator 3rd Edition 2022

It’s time to inspire confidence in the future. As a modern statement, our watches are a good reason to start conversations about positive solutions for our planet. We believe big changes start with small actions.

CAP watch provides mechanical watches with high social and environmental values by engaging the local ecosystem, communicating with transparency and embracing circular economy.

Education Architects is an educational content agency. Our competences are personal knowledge management and edupreneurship.

In our online courses “Vernetze dein Gedächtnis” (German) or “Nota a Nota” (Spanish) you will learn personal knowledge agency that improves your productivity and tells you how to process information, how to file it and where to find it when you need it. In Edupreneurship we consult educational institutions and companies on education and entrepreneurship, give courses on personal knowledge agency and new work, and manage our Meetup Community on edupreneurship.

FAHAMU AG is Swiss start-up founded in 2021 in Basel. Fahamu is Swahili and stands for understanding, meaning and being conscious. We believe that each and everybody on this planet has a purpose and needs to follow it to have a fulfilled life with great impact.

We help companies tackle sustainability by engaging their own employees. We enable employees to crowdsource and fund sustainable internal innovation to reduce carbon footprint, putting the employees in the driver seat and becoming a part of the company’s sustainability movement.

KUORI‘s goal is to develop a biodegradable, sustainable alternative material using the waste product banana peel in combination with a biopolymer, following the concept of a circular economy.

The focus lies on the development of an alternative shoe outsole without microplastic abrasion according to the cradle-to-cradle (C2C) principle.

UseUp is an app that helps waste less food at home. The user is encouraged to use the ingredients that need to be used most urgently and aims to find recipes that need little to no additional shopping. Over time, the user fills and maintains their virtual inventory, which enables the app to make more relevant recipe suggestions.

UseUp encapsulates the philosophy „buy less – waste less“. However, on top of that it offers inspiration to break free from cooking your staples over and over again. Win-win, right?
