Droppe – One-stop shop for all your wholesale

Connecting local businesses to Europe's top equipment manufacturers via an online wholesale marketplace. ——— Founded in 2020 in Finland, Droppe is building an online marketplace that brings European industrial equipment manufacturers and industrial buyers together. Currently, the top concern for industrial buyers is finding and stocking operating supplies that are painless to buy in bulk, low in cost and responsibly sourced. Industrial buyers can now bulk order products for food manufacturing and industrial manufacturing ranging from hairnets to aprons and protective gloves through Droppe’s online platform. Ultimately Droppe makes the European wholesale industry more connected by creating shorter and more responsible supply chains, as companies can look for local wholesale marketplaces from Europe instead of other continents. The company's easy-to-use online marketplace is already used by some of the biggest industrial key players and publicly listed companies in Europe. “As industrial wholesale moves online, more and more industrial buyers will be looking for new ways to bulk order products via the internet. Droppe is the first in the market to build a European industrial wholesale marketplace, a mission that we are excited to continue building and expanding with new resources,” Johannes Salmisaari, the CEO and Co-founder of Droppe, explains. “Our vision is to create a trustworthy community of European buyers and manufacturers and through that, build a stronger European wholesale market.” In just under two years, Droppe has reached a GMV of over €4M and over 500 customers from SMEs to publicly listed companies, bootstrapped. In early 2022, Droppe raised a venture round backed by Lifeline Ventures, Ilkka Paananen (CEO & Co-founder of Supercell) and Miki Kuusi (CEO & Co-founder of Wolt). “Droppe’s online marketplace streamlines the buying process and makes it easier for industrial buyers. Buyers are now able to order directly from multiple manufacturers across Europe at the same time, all on one invoice–something that the industry hasn't seen before,” tells Henrik Helenius, Co-founder of Droppe. “According to Gartner by 2025, 80% of B2B sales interactions between suppliers and buyers will occur in digital channels, such as online marketplaces. Droppe is tapping into this worldwide shift to industrial online marketplaces with their online platform, showing an exceptional promise to do so with their strong growth numbers. As an investor, it is quite rare to see such a well-oiled machine at this stage,” Timo Ahopelto, the Founding Partner at Lifeline Ventures, tells.

LifeBonder

Current social media does not connect us in any meaningful ways. The more connected we get online, the more lonely and isolated we become. Millennials is the first generation to have grown up with social media, and we now know that social media addiction leads to lower quality of life. The problem is that social media is primarily built around the needs of advertisers and not that of users. The business model of current social media growth engines is designed around addiction as a profit-maximizing mechanism. The LifeBonder mission is to create a social media platform that lives up to the promise of what social media can be: A tool to facilitate human connections rather than replacing them. We want to make the world a better place by filling a growing need - connecting people in friendships that are human, profound and meaningful. By leveraging AI and ML, we will intelligently match people on profile parameters listed by the user. In a commitment to privacy, we do not track search or platform behavior. Instead, advanced AI algorithms will discover new patterns through ML that link everything from demographic data, lifestyle, interests, likes and dislikes, places and whatever else users might enter into their match profiles. Using machine learning we will train different AI models to learn which combination of parameters best predict a good match using feedback from our users. We will build a social network focused on building in-person social bonds – or Life Bonds - in close one-on-one connections or as part of a wider LifeBonder community of user-initiated groups. We will lead a social media revolution to bring user needs into the core business - and keep advertiser needs at the periphery where they belong. We are spearheading the next generation of social media, which will be: • A genuine human connection tool • Subscription-based • Committed to privacy protection through blockchain • Well-moderated • Chronological to keep posts in order NextGen will be more than sharing content with existing friends and friends of friends. NextGen will be all about new meaningful social relations where people are matched in friendships aimed specifically at exactly what each user is looking for, whether: • Establishing a new network of friends as a city newcomer • A running partner • Travel companions • Someone with whom to share a passion • A friend to join you volunteering • And much, much more Anything is possible. LifeBonder is a place for anyone and everyone to find the friendships they most need in life. NextGen social media must take on the challenges existing platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many others face: • Privacy concerns of users and regulatory agencies • A growing disconnect between social media and real life • Increasing aversion to intrusive advertising and "fake news" • Rising social isolation • A growing lack of meaningful social relations

EcoTree

EcoTree is a green-tech company specializing in sustainability. Our goal is to promote environmental awareness and engage individuals and businesses in eco-friendly behaviour by offering simple, concrete, and financially viable solutions to becoming a tree or even forest owner. Every single day 3.4 billion tons of CO2 is released into the atmosphere worldwide. In Europe, we are among the worst polluters in the world. While we can do a lot to reduce our emissions, it is impossible to stay completely CO2 neutral. You can, in turn, offset your carbon footprint by planting trees. As a matter of fact, the forest is one of our best means to fight global warming, as trees absorb CO2 through the process of photosynthesis. EcoTree has democratized and digitalized forestry. With EcoTree, it is easy and accessible both for individuals and businesses to contribute to the reforestation and preservation of our common green heritage. EcoTree enables everybody to become a tree owner. EcoTree has a team of forest experts that take care of planting and maintaining the forests in which your trees are located. You, being the owner of the trees, are entitled to receive 100% of the revenue generated from the wood sale when your trees have reached maturity, cut, and the forest is renewed. EcoTree implements a “close to nature” forestry management plan in which the preservation of the biodiversity in the forest is kept at the heart of our activities, and for every tree that is cut, EcoTree plants three new ones. The idea behind EcoTree came up when a group of French childhood friends went to Copenhagen on a trip in 2014. There were many things that the group of friends adored about the Scandinavian lifestyle, but one thing that especially struck them was the well-functioning bottle deposit system. On each can, glass, or plastic bottle you purchase in Denmark you pay a small premium as a deposit that you get back when returning the empty bottles and cans to the supermarket. Consequently, the cities are clean and society more sustainable. This simple idea of rewarding sustainability led to the foundation of EcoTree. Approximately 600,000 newly planted trees later, the idea that was born in Scandinavia returns to its place of origin, as EcoTree has opened its new international office in Copenhagen in September 2019.
