In an online event, the startup-company “WeGrow”, located in Tönisvorst, Germany, will be presented by one of its founders. With innovative approaches, „WeGrow“ develops and sells fast growing Kiri tree seedlings for sustainable, environmentally friendly  large scale production of high-value wood, as an alternative to classical wood production systems. Founded in 2009 as a spin-off from the research area „Renewable Raw Materials“ at the University of Bonn, „WeGrow“ has rapidly developed into a successful and steadily growing company which connects science with practice for actively designing the future of sustainable wood production, on an international market. From the first idea to the present business success, the founder will report about his personal experiences with regard to: requirements and prerequisites for the foundation and economic growth of a startup-company, obstacles to pass, success factors, mistakes to avoid. There will also be sufficient time for questions and discussions!

Speaker: Peter Diessenbacher, WeGrow
