My_SmartBottle @ Unbound London

Unbound London was again superb! Not only did we meet a lot of interesting people and companies; thanks to FIT (Flanders Investment & Trade) we’ve had the amazing opportunity to pitch our story on the Future Stage of this world-renown Innovation Festival in London.

In 2018 My_SmartBottle was attending the Unbound festival for the very first time. At that time, we were still in our Proof of Concept phase. For us Unbound 2018 is where our story really ‘took off’, as we’ve got to know our CTO there, as well as our current manufacturer and we’ve planted seeds with our first potential clients and retailers!

Between Unbound 2018 and Unbound 2019, a lot of progress has been made. We’ve developed and tested prototypes, which we proudly showed during the festival last week. Since Unbound 2018 was in certain ways a major starting point for us, we’ve agreed then and there with the My_team that Unbound 2019 would become our next milestone. The objective was to commence production by the next Unbound and to have our very first retailer signed. And we’ve succeeded, no… even excelled; as we did not only sign our first clients and have other deals sign-ready, two days before Unbound 2019 we’ve agreed the manufacturing deal of the very first batch of My_SmartBottle.

So Unbound 2020, we’re coming for you!
