Everyone knows it: Frying pans that stick. Thats why every year we throw away about 1,000,000 frying pans in Switzerland alone! RePan recoats your frying pans. This way we save at least 80% of resources, produce regionally and in a consciously better standard. Quality, fair and even cheaper. For the realization of our company foundation, we need you! Buy a new coated pan or have yours recoated. Let nothing burn!
Startschuss! Mit ca. 200 Pfannen kommt eine überschaubare Anzahl für eine Nachbeschichtungscharge zusammen. Zusätzlich können wir externe Labortests finanzieren.
600 Pfannen! Hier können wir Juristen und den Prozess der Unternehmensgründung finanzieren, um unser Anliegen, unsere Kooperationen und Wachstumspläne zu unterstützen. Zusätzlich können wir eine kleine Aufwertung der Webseite vornehmen.
Unser anfängliches und rundes Ziel von 1000 neu beschichteten Pfannen in einem Rutsch ist erreicht! Weitere Testreihen für verschiedene Beschichtungen, Webentwickler und ein bisschen Marketing-Reichweite können finanziert werden, um die Idee weiter voranzutreiben.
RePan is a young, impact-oriented project that promotes the recoating of frying pans.
Behind the young start up is the doer and environmental engineer Dominic Müller, as a spin-off of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland with the support of, for example, the Federal Office for Innovation Promotion Innosuisse. Together with the passionate, growing and currently volunteer team, public interest and awards could be won for the concept in addition to convincing test series.
RePan was honored with 1st place twice in January. The Circular economy incubator as well as in the Global Student Entrepreneurs Awards. We were also interviewed by the WWF's subsidiary OnePlanetLab.
RePan was visionary built as a project within the association Gemeinsam Nachhaltig, which aims to promote the implementation of sustainable circular economy. The vision is not "just" pans, but to make everything from batteries and furniture to entire houses recyclable.
All in all: We are on fire for quality and sustainability - and do our best!
As a passionate Rösti cook and young entrepreneur, good pans are needed. Dominic learned to look at resources in large systems and so also the pan in everyone's kitchen. With RePan, what he learned is now being put into action: "The principle of circular economy can be applied to so many things, for the quality of the product, in life and for the environment".
As a passionate climber and skier, environmental sustainability is an important part of my life. As an electrical engineer by training working in the software industry, my systems-based thinking motivates my contributions to RePan. Circular products like RePan are fundamental to transforming our consumption-based system to one that focuses more on regional and sustainable products.
RePan is supported by many volunteers: Currently a team of about 14 people ranging from nurses to military engineers to cooks. Three generations work together to make it happen. Without the experience, hands or skills of the team, we would not be where we are. The motivation is there: a more sustainable world.
