The Barcelona Music Lab Foundation, Cruïlla Festival, and Damm announce the seven finalists of the Sustainable Challenge II startups

The selected companies have participated in the Startup Week, where workshops and mentoring sessions have been held to develop the projects that will be presented in the final on November 6th.

Barcelona, October 24, 2023 – The Barcelona Music Lab Foundation (BMLab) has successfully celebrated a new edition of the Startup Week of the Sustainable Challenge II, an event that represents a significant advancement in waste management at music events. This initiative, carried out in collaboration with the Cruïlla Festival, Damm, the Waste Agency of Catalonia, and the Ship2B Foundation, has brought together seven startups with a shared commitment to sustainability to address key challenges.

A Week of Exchange and Collaboration: The Startup Week

The Startup Week of the Sustainable Challenge II was a week of intense activity focused on co-creation and mutual learning. The participating startups, Vytal, Again, Yeasty, And-less, Bin-e, Retornadoo, and Abono KM0, took part in workshops and mentoring sessions designed to co-create collaboration projects with the sponsors of the Barcelona Music Lab and experts provided by Cruïlla, Damm, or the Waste Agency of Catalonia. During these days, proposals and solutions emerged that promise to improve waste management and sustainability at music festivals.

Next Steps toward a More Sustainable Future

After this successful Startup Week, the next key event will be on November 6th when the startups will present their collaboration proposals to Damm and Cruïlla. These proposals represent the result of the work carried out during the Startup Week and mark an important step towards the implementation of innovative solutions. With the enthusiasm and commitment demonstrated during this event, we are eager to see the practical results that these collaborations could offer.

A Collaboration with Positive Impact: The Sustainable Challenge II

The Sustainable Challenge II has shown that collaboration between innovative startups, music festivals, and companies like Damm can have a significant impact on the sustainability of music events. This initiative not only seeks solutions to current challenges but also aspires to promote a more sustainable future for everyone.

With the Startup Week as an example of the participants’ enthusiasm and the spirit of collaboration among contributors, the Sustainable Challenge II is a testament to how innovation and sustainability can work together to create a better world.
