These startups were funded by IFB in August 2022

In August, IFB Innovationsstarter GmbH again included several Hamburg startups in its funding programs. We introduce: Ruuky, Brygge, 3D Spark, CarbonStack and 3Dock.

Ruuky offers a giro account for young adults

Ruuky qualified for the InnoFinTech program. The name is derived from the term "rookie," which refers to up-and-coming sports talents. At the heart of the offering is a giro account tailored specifically to the needs of young people. There are two account models, one of which also gives parents access if the child is under 18.

Brygge makes it easier for older people to get started with online banking

Also part of InnoFinTech, Brygge addresses a completely different target group than Ruuky, namely the older generation. Some of them are not as online-savvy or internet-seasoned, but would still like to take advantage of online banking. Here, Brygge provides assistance with tips on existing financial services. The startup does not offer its own account, however.

3D Spark knows how 3D printing works

3D printing can speed up production processes and avoid delivery bottlenecks in many cases, but it is not easy for companies to figure out when it is worthwhile and which processes are most suitable. The startup 3D Spark has developed software that helps answer just such questions. It is now receiving InnoRampUp funding for this, with grants of up to 150,000 euro.

CarbonStack helps with CO2 compensation

CarbonStack is also receiving this. The startup is thus continuing its winning streak, having just recently received seed funding of 500,000 euros. CarbonStack enables companies to offset unavoidable CO2 emissions with regional reforestation projects. This involves monitoring forests with high-resolution satellite imagery and documenting compensation amounts on a blockchain.

3Dock uses 3D printing for the shipping industry

As the company name suggests, 3Dock is once again all about 3D printing. This startup has specialized in an industry that is particularly relevant for Hamburg, namely shipping. It promises to minimize delivery times through the decentralized production of spare parts. For this, 3Dock receives funding from the InnoFounder program, which targets startups at the very beginning of their development.
