We are delighted to announce the winners of our Reinvent The Habitat Challenge.
Last months, the five finalists have pitched their concepts to our investors. All very inspiring pitches. Of course, we also had an in depth look into the concepts. And after very thoughtful consideration, we have selected two concepts as the winners of our challenge.
And the winners are…
A smart, modular concept with great possibilities to reduce the costs of housing in the future and to improve home happiness. The system is well thought out and (almost) market ready. It has already been built before (in South Africa), so we expect to develop and scale up quickly.
Qupz has an appealing vision and great earning potential. It includes an industry transcending platform approach. Partner parties can design their own living spaces and residents can choose a plug and play house of their favourite lifestyle brands.
Keep following us!
Now it is time to take the next steps. We are working on the right configuration for the RAW Module concept for the Dutch market. We are going to build and test this configuration on The Green Village in Delft before end of 2018.
The Qupz concept needs some more detailed engineering and digital development before we start building and testing. So that’s what we are going to do first for Qupz.
Again, a big thank you to all parties that participated in the Reinvent The Habitat Challenge! Hats off for your effort.
We will keep you post-it. And hey, never stop rethinking the way things are.
