Over the years c23 ventures invest All3DP GmbH in Munich, Germany has grown with the trend of 3D printers. CEO Matthias Plica has no worries about large suppliers such as Google or Amazon getting involved in the component business. “We are currently in a pleasant but global niche,” says the co-founder, “and at the same time in a market that is fortunately not so trivial. In order to maintain its lead, the start-up company has just completed a financing round. More than two million euros are being provided by existing investors.
The current funding is therefore only an intermediate step for All3DP. Next year, the start-up company wants to raise money again – with the participation of international investors. “The role of 3D printing in the production of physical goods is becoming increasingly important,” says Plica, “opening up access to a market volume of over 12 trillion euros.
Scurrying about in the shelter of forests, jumping into the treetops, taking a dust-bath in the shade and picking organic fodder: a start-up from Munich proves that animal welfare, climate and environmental protection are compatible with profitable food production. The result: The Climate Egg. And it is under this name that the company Pumperlgsund brings the organic eggs with a special ecological footprint to German supermarkets at Easter.

The study revealed: 11 out of 12 possible points. The Climate Egg had to prove itself for the Eaternity Score in four categories: animal welfare, environment, rainforest and water. And the evaluation results are impressive: The Climate Change Egg has a 27% better carbon footprint than the average organic egg (EU organic) – and is 47 % better than the free-range egg. The production of six Klima-Egg consumes only 26 litres of water. The entire value chain produces only 857 grams of CO2 – for normal organic eggs it is over 1,000 grams.
