** PITCH 3 -> – Scoop **
Scoop allows businesses to track the waste, recyclable and re-usable materials they produce with the tap of a phone.
Scoop has teamed up with Neil Garner & Thyngs, with all their expertise working with tagging technology to bring this to life.
Using NFC/QR code stickers unique to their business and material types, every business can have transparency of what they produce.
The data and insights that Scoop provides allows businesses to make better and more sustainable decisions in their everyday waste management.
By connecting those producing the materials and those who can use and process it, we aim to turn waste producers into material providers.
Speaker David Kingfisher is CEO of Scoop, has competed in all the Sync the City events, including winning two and previously worked at Rainbird.ai.
