The pressing need for innovation, sustainability and social change within the music industry is undeniable. Is there are more fitting way to accelerate the transition than to use festival infrastructure as testing grounds?
This program showcases the five most promising Innofest startups of 2023. They address critical issues such as carbon footprint reduction, waste management, and accessibility – ultimately benefiting both festival-goers and the planet. This year’s innovations include:
- A calculator that maps the CO2 footprint of festival food by Blockchain diner
- A natural fertilizer made from human urine collected at events by Toopi
- A flexible and renewable energy supply through interchangeable batteries by Renset
- A mobile washing facility to clean reusable plates and cutlery on-site by Ozarka
All start-ups have a test record to prove their impact. Join the showcase to meet the entrepreneurs, learn more about testing opportunities, or find out how your event can make an impact through innovation. And stay seated for a special award ceremony after this program!
