Dutch start-up Seenons has raised €10 million in a recent investment round allowing it to make technological improvements and grow the platform internationally. Some of the investors involved include Invest-NL, CapitalT, Tablomonto, Swiss Post and Shamrock Ventures.
“With this funding we want to enable higher steps on the R-ladder: Reduce / Reuse / Recycle, in multiple countries across Europe. We will invest heavily in our leading European circular platform, an independent platform that serves as a waste orchestrator to transform the economy from linear to circular," says Martin Kayser, co-founder and CTO of Seenons.
The platform provides a solution for waste collectors and waste processors to actively reduce, reuse and recycle materials. Organisations separate their waste and register it in one click. The platform then connects each waste stream with the most efficient logistics partner to collect it – and with processors and producers who can turn it into valuable materials again. During the process, the platform collects data about the waste processed.
“As Invest-NL we see the urgency to transform from a linear to a circular economy. Seenons' platform is a key digital enabler for the circular economy connecting organisations with waste, logistic providers and processors to turn waste into valuable materials and products. As such, Seenons perfectly fits our investment strategy to support companies that accelerate the transition towards a circular economy,'' says Elwin van Rooijen, investment manager at Invest-NL.
"We would like to sincerely thank CapitalT, Tablomonto, Shamrock Ventures, Swiss Post Ventures and Invest-NL for their support and belief in our mission,” says Joost Kamermans, co-founder and CEO of Seenons.
