When you do household and kitchen chores, do you constantly feel something is missing to help you with these activities? Do you need quick and efficient solutions?
We are so happy to invite you to innovate with FRANCIS project and be the creator of your own space with the help of our team of mentors: industry coaches, buddies and facilitators.
FRANCIS Frugal Innovation challenge is for everyone, who needs simple, sustainable and affordable solutions at home, for example for food preparation, cooking, preserving leftovers, cleaning the dishes or washing your clothes. At the end of the challenge, we provide support for bringing the best ideas to life. If we love your idea, you can sell it to the industry coach, go the next steps together or start a business by yourself – you decide.
This challenge specifically welcomes participants from India, Germany and Turkey but is open to everyone, who is at least 18 years old and speaks English, German or Turkish. We aim at attracting citizens that value simplicity – families with restricted budget and space, people with a minimalist mindset and senior citizen managing their own household. We are also looking forward to your application if you are an entrepreneur with new ideas that could change the market.
