Projet : Made By Project

Laure Jubert | 2022-04-26

The competition for slow coffee gear innovation of tomorrow!


WHAT IS MADE BY PROJECT?  

Like "Who wants to be my partner?", we wanted to launch a call to all inventors who would like to see their coffee accessory ideas born and marketed throughout Europe.
Those who innovate in the market by inventing products that make sense, that promote craftsmanship or that improve the lives of baristas.
Those who often need a little push, a big publicity stunt or financial support to get started! 

EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS?

- A zero impact filter
- A compostable packaging
- A cup made from recycled materials
- A line of handmade, local coffee tableware
- An idea to improve the comfort of the barista's work
- An accessory that enhances a region...
 

HOW DO YOU PARTICIPATE? 

Normally, we launch an edition every two years and to participate it is not very complicated: choose your support to present your project, everything is allowed to explain it: video, written file, drawing, clay sculture, napkin... 
 
It is afterwards that it gets complicated, your presentation must include : The origin of your idea, your target, your thoughts on feasibility, your support needs, your competitive advantage, an idea of its marketing and your vision for the months/years to come.
In short, something to make us dream a little and show us how we can help you!
