Kollectbox.com is the Fancy.com of stamp, coin and banknote collectors. It is a marketplace that enables collectors to manage, share, exchange and buy collections and allows dealers to sell their catalogs.
Nowadays, there are several websites were you can buy collections and webapps and softwares where you can manage collections. Kollectbox.com matches theses two products in one place, providing collectors with a seamless tool with which to manage, share, exchange and buy collections. Dealers will gain access to a huge marketplace. Instead of just owning a webpage or a blog and wait for the collectors to come to them, they will know where collectors are and what items are they looking for.
Whereas the competitors either are focused on developing tools to manage collections or developing online markets to sell, Kollectbox.com offers an innovative marketplace for collectors through which they will be able to connect and get in touch with dealers.
Based on a business model divided into three customer segments (the private collector, the social collector and the dealers), Kollectbox.com has two revenue streams. One from the dealers, a brokerage fee revenue system, in which 10% on every sale made in kollectbox.com will be charged, and another one from the collectors, a fremium model in which basic features, such as create and manage collections will be free but, to be able to exchange items (for example) the user will need to activate a premium account.
With an experienced and multidisciplinary team behind the product, Kollectbox.com is seeking for a capital investment of 250k €, amount which will be used to carry out an internationalization campaign to expand the product in the United Kingdom.

Métrica6 has developed Ness, a solution to one common problem, the wastage of cold water produced every time a person demands hot water. Ness is CE marked and applied for national patent in May 2014. Ness can save up to 40% of drinkable water, more than 800 liters/person/month.
Ness is composed of three different modules that communicate wirelessly: a pump module (A), a bypass (B) and a capacitive switch (C), and only one module of each kind are needed to enjoy the benefits in the whole living.
When hot water wants to be used, instead of opening the tap, the capacitive switch should be activated. This way, hot water will begin to run from our individual water heater towards the desired tap. Once the correct temperature has been reached, the user is warned through a light in the switch. Now hot water is available without having wasted a drop.
Our main goal now is to launch the product and expand our distribution from local to national and lately international. For that aim, we need to focus on improving the commercial areas of the company and the project: hire new staff (at least 1 commercial agent) (€15.000), develop a computer environment to get Ness into software databases (€18.000), scale the manufacturing process (€40.000) and execute a commercial strategy and negotiation agenda, with visits to national events of the sector and meetings with potential clients, distributors and other partners (€23.000). Thus, a total amount of €96.000 is requested.

This solution is armed with an intelligent social network for mobile apps and the web that collects, processes, and uses the information that users unintentionally generate every day on the platform and its relations to other users or content (also to generate their own content).

Therefore, we can elect businesses with more competitive prices in any place and negotiate group buying rates.
With these tools we can effectively mediate between supply and demand. This is a market with much potential but without intermediaries, and without reliable market research given its “taboo” trajectory in recent years. We have a specialized strength in LGBT tourism en events and activities, but we also offer professional, specialized ecommerce, professional services, utilities for trips, guides, tools, group chats, etc. It is a meeting point in the cloud of reality where personal relationships, shopping, leisure, information, and professional services for the LGBT community come into play.
We are the only gay app on the market that is totally free and unlimited for the final user. While we are the most complete, we want to break the rules of competition by implementing a new, more efficient model while we generate a greater volume of valuable information. In very little time we have attracted over 20,000 users and we have the honor of being the official app of World Pride 2017, an international event in Madrid for which more than 3 million people are expected.
