Resourcify is a technology company providing a cloud-platform for digital waste management, with a focus on simplicity, neutrality and sustainability.
Supported by EIT RawMaterials
The concept for the business was born when CEO and co-founder, Gary Lewis, worked on cruise ships and saw first-hand how important it was to process as much waste as possible. This then germinated in the frantic environs of a Startup Weekend event in Hamburg, where Lewis teamed up with several other participants to rapidly prototype the concept for what would become Resourcify.
The company was founded in Hamburg in 2015 to help businesses easily manage their waste, and recyclers to seamlessly connect with their customers online. Resourcify aspires to help the world transition to a sustainable and circular economy, with the digitisation of recycling.
The cloud-based platform aims to overcome the often-siloed nature of the waste value chain and allow stakeholders to work more effectively together.
EIT Community support
Resourcify originally partnered with the EIT via EIT Climate-KIC, who helped them to take the basic concept formed during the Startup Weekend and turn it into a viable business case. The company then partnered with EIT RawMaterials to bring the solution to market.
Whenever start-ups from any sector go into a space with a large incumbent, it’s really important that you’re taken seriously. Being able to put the EIT RawMaterials logo on our pitch gave us the credibility to get our foot in the door.
