It’s been five days since our CFG grand finale at Fashion For Good in Amsterdam, but I’m still energised by the experience, the inspiring people I’ve met and the ideas we came up with. We’ve spent our second bootcamp in Amsterdam, both at fashion for good and the impact hub, to finalise and substantiate our ideas for the challenging companies. During the finale, we’ve pitched them to representatives of those companies and a jury. For us participants, this was also the first time to hear about what the other teams had been working on for the past two bootcamp. It was great to see what everyone came up with: The winning team, for example, created the idea of an online service platform for the German outdoor-gear maker Vaude. On the platform, Vaude can rent hiking packages to travellers and thereby enter the service market. My team worked on a solution for clothing collector Sympany and the municipality of Amsterdam, who together want to find a circular solution for the 3 million kg of clothes that are collected in the region per year. Instead of selling them abroad, we came up with the idea of an online B2B platform that connects Sympany with various textile recycling companies and offers recycled materials to local businesses in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region.
