The team.

Simon, Max, and Tom are the Co-Founders of Skosh

This is us. We, Simon (left), Max (middle), and Tom (right) met during our master's programme at Lund University in the South of Sweden. Together, we're joking Skosh with the goal to make cleaning sustainable. Simon and Tom from Germany and Max is from the Netherlands. During our time in Sweden, we became close friends and I'm learning about Swedish culture. As time passed we More and more that we all share the same interest in self in, being self-use and also share the same goal to found a company that has a positive impact on our planet. It was gonna be snatch a no-brainer to found a company together not only because we knew each other as friends and shared the same vision but also due to our various differences. Simon has a background with Marketing, MEDIA, and Sales while Max is an expert in product design. Tom is taking over the accounting part due to his background in finance.

The early stages.

It all started in November 2019 when we signed up to Lund's biggest innovation Challenge with the goal to find an idea to reduce the global Over the course of the challenge, we know that the cleaning industry is one of the biggest contributions to global textile waste. This is mainly due to the one-time-use, which are more like the ones away from once they are empty. We thought that there should a better solution and that's how we came up with Skosh (Soaplett but we're looking after the challenge). Like you can see in the picture on the left, we actually put up winning the competition. The prize was a place in the local incubator of the university which provided us with office space as well as our great business developer Tillie (Shoutout! :D). The next months were dominated by balancing the workload of the master program with the tasks of our entrepreneurial project Skosh. Even though it was a lot of work we managed to reach important milestones, iterated the new, established, established partnerships, the 'a company webpage', and social media profiles. We also have the pitch of pitch-decks, business-plan, and I have to a lot of customers. The first months of this project were just dominated by a lot of pitching and trying to! different partners to support us. Potally, we managed to establish partnerships with different innovation centres that supported us with the development of our tablets. Now that we ... from University, we are finally able to work on this project full-time which is really reliving. It was always itching in our Fingers when writing on our master thesis or other student assignments because working on this idea was always way more. So now we are proud to say that we are drunk-time-y.

The next steps.

We want to make the product as good as it can be but we can only owe this with your help. So if you are interested in receiving our first prototype starter-kit for free then let us know!
