Deko Eko is online upcycling marketplace connecting businesses, designers, small manufacturers and consumers aiming to create more circular market by bringing back waste materials to the loop. Deko Eko creates and facilitates a professional ‘waste-to-product’ market which focuses on finding the most valuable solutions for hard-to-recycle waste materials by boosting creativity and collaboration among designers, consumers and global companies.
In their own words:
“At our B2B2C marketplace, the newest upcycling ideas are matched via our ‘smart-matching solutions’ with global corporations that are generating waste and seeking for new, more profitable solutions,” explains Agata Frankiewicz, CEO, Deko Eko.
“Our international chain of upcycling manufacturers gives the highest value jump from zero to a ready-to-sell products which are 100% made from carefully chosen waste materials from global companies. Among them are all sorts of every-day-use products like bags, jewellery, fashion and interior products, corporate gifts, brand loyalty giveaways made from outdated marketing materials, old collection of products, packagings of products, textiles, etc.”
The growth potential of the upcycling market lies in following trends and forecasts:
– Corporate Gifts market worth more than EUR 1 billion in Western Europe
– EUR 5 billion of spendings CSR in EU
– 50% faster growth of sustainable brands
– EU regulations – “Circular Economy Package”
– Circular economy can provide up to EUR 600 billion of savings yearly
– 100 million LOHAS worldwide, 50 million in EU are looking for sustainable products and circular solutions
How does Deko Eko plan to become the 1st global circular marketplace in Europe?
This will happen by developing two main lines of growth:
1. Smart matching tools linking up directly corporate clients with designers’ upcycling products
2. The e-commerce platform for upcycling designers to sell their products directly to aware consumers
“The current round will help Deko Eko to roll-out international expansion with a starting point in the Netherlands. Thanks to the investment we can grow at a fast pace including dynamic sales growth (from EUR 75,000 in 2018 to EUR 1.3 million in 2021), increasing the number of upcycling companies registering their accounts and multinationals clients cooperating with our ecosystem via our marketplace. Today we have over 50 and plan to have 250 users on by the end of 2020.
“We plan to build strong operations in the Netherlands as a circular hot spot to scale up our solution to other European countries (UK, France, Scandinavia, Germany, Italy) and US market,” says Frankiewicz.
