Please introduce yourself and your startup Inprosperis to our readers!
Inprosperis is an R&D company moving forward new technologies in biotech, foodtech, cleantech and lifestyle industries. In addition to consulting services, state-of-the-art R&D capacities are continuously built up with the goal to foster development and market entry of ground-breaking products and services that shake up established industries and are going to create completely new markets in twenties.
How did you get the idea of Inprosperis?
Sometimes you wonder why some products or services are missing and you can’t buy them yet. Many great products had bad timing at the market entry moment although they are ahead of their time. The time is ripe now – for clean, healthy products and services.
Why did you decide to start with Inprosperis?
We just witness an era when millennials and teenagers are striking for human rights, clean earth and healthy food, while they parents believe in fake news, buy SUVs and eat fast food. Such a big divergence in the present and future customers is a unique opportunity that has not emerged for more than 60 years and was the main reason to start Inprosperis as a company.
What is the vision behind Inprosperis?
To deliver clean and healthy products based on available know-how by means of developing missing links in technology, expertise and skills.
How difficult was the start and which challenges you had to overcome?
The biggest challenge is the usual way of thinking by investors and financial institutions looking for mainstream investment opportunities into emerging digital technologies (fintech, blockchain, AI, VR, etc.) whereas cleantech, deeptech, healthtech and foodtech are generally outside of their main interest. Recently, a new wave of impact investors emerged and can provide required financing for development of ethical products and services.
Who is your target audience?
In terms of customers, our target audience are young people looking for future products and services improving their health, environment and lives in general. Our B2B clients are start-ups, academic spin-offs as well as big companies introducing new, innovative products or services into the emerging markets. Currently, our R&D activities are covering biotech, foodtech and lifestyle industries.
What is the USP of your startup?
Meaningful research and development. What does it mean? First, we ask right questions to drive R&D towards new markets. Second, smart answers determine our strategies to fill the gaps delaying product development and market entry. Finally, our strong values and responsibility are guiding us towards actions that are best to do or what way is best to take without trading off our vision.
Can you describe your typical workday?
Get up early and do your best. However, the most important condition for a productive workday is to free the brain from overload. If I can’t concentrate because of too much information, noise or pressure, I prefer “shinrin yoku” or a day out with my family. Being trapped in a negative or useless thinking in the office means loosing valuable time and energy.
Where do you see yourself and your startup Inprosperis in five years?
I would like to visit Summer Olympics 2024 in Paris while promoting our healthy products there. In 2024, Inprosperis will be a medium-size company just completing the second round financing and poised for further growth.
What 3 tips would you give to founders?
Work together with the best only. There are dozens of business consultants, financial auditors and tax accountants understanding their own business but misunderstanding your goals. You have to find the best ones for you and for your business.
Step-by-step. Don’t try to solve all challenges at once. Adjust your strategy after every problem solved towards next step you take.
Never give up. Be patient if you can’t solve a problem immediately. There are hundreds of solutions for every problem, not only one.
