Month: October 2023

Through a series of 4 articles published on Continuous Reconstruction, Rob Spiro introduced startup ideas to eat less meat. You can call them “almost” ideas” or hunches to explore.Here’s a list of 6 prompts for ideas to reduce meat consumption:

  • Develop exciting products or services for aspiring vegetarians and vegans.
  • Help introduce more meat-free or meat-reduced options to restaurant menus
  • Do more with beans
  • Renew the tempeh category
  • Build a brand around a label of environmentally-friendly livestock farms
  • Create more alternatives to dairy products

Do you see opportunities for projects where business and impact meet? Do you operate in one of the above areas? We’d love to hear from you! And if you have other ideas to share, feel free to join the conversation – we’re actively looking for co-founders and answers to the complex subject of “eating less meat” at Imagination Machine.

Clean air conditioning

Call for applications

Month: October 2023

Air-conditioning intensifies global warming, and the phenomenon is getting worse: the amount of equipment used to lower the temperature in our homes is increasing. Today’s energy-hungry air-conditioning systems already account for 4% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. The refrigerant gas used to cool the air is highly polluting.
Cooling, ventilating, dehumidifying, purifying. What if we were to create intelligent solutions – more efficient, less energy-consuming, and healthier – to improve indoor air quality? Which low-tech and high-tech solutions should be prioritized? How can we judiciously combine hard and software solutions to bring comfort and well-being to our future users?

We want to co-create the start-up that maximizes air quality in the home. Do you have a project already up and running, or some ideas and the desire to crack this “hot” topic with us? We’re looking for co-founding entrepreneurs, so get in touch!


Grey water

Call for applications

Month: October 2023

“Grey water” is wastewater from domestic sources like water from sinks, showers, baths, washing machines and dishwashers, or rainwater. It can be recycled or used for tasks that can be done with not-entirely-clean (non-potable) water.

What if we develop a grey water recovery and treatment system for private or professional use? Or monitoring and analysis solutions to track grey water consumption? Or create intelligent irrigation systems? Or more efficient, automated water management for homes? Intelligent water management is a major and urgent global challenge. New solutions need to emerge!

The “grey water” project is an opportunity to contribute to the sustaining existence of water, perhaps our most important resource,, while offering innovative and profitable solutions to users to reduce their environmental footprint and save on their water bills. We are actively seeking partners to launch an exploration in this field.

The challenge is to create and develop a business opportunity that incentivizes regenerative agriculture. Co-founders wanted! We’re ready to start exploring.
