Swapsee, the community marketplace for talent, and Claro Partners, business innovation and service design firm, in collaboration with EatWith and Le18 will host a unique Service Jam focused on the issue of food waste. Currently, over 262.000 tons of food is being wasted every year in Catalonia. This is a huge problem but also an opportunity with great potential.
During three consecutive evenings, 3 groups of 5 people with a background in entrepreneurship, business, technology, engineering, marketing and design will be invited to flex their mind muscles and come up with a solution to this problem rooted in the Internet and/or mobile technology. Facilitators from Swapsee and Claro Partners will guide the participants and help them structure their ideas and develop a product concept and a business plan around it.
A jury formed by experts in the field will review their proposals. Confirmed judges: Abdi Shayeste of Ousul Ventures, Rosa Monge of Imagine Creative Center, Victor Fortunado of Cookbooth, Franck Poirier of Le18, Aldo de Jong of Claro Partners, and Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit of Startup Grind BCN.
The winning team will be announced at the Fest-UP Awards on the night of May 9th and will receive a grand prize, which consists of an 1h30 session of mentoring from the Claro Partners team to further develop the concept and/or resolve questions. If the team continues and founds a startup Claro Partners is open to discuss further support.
