During the 4 day festival of technology and innovation, Adaptavate exhibited with our prototype products of Breathaboard and Breathaplasta, and demonstrated both how they work as a system in buildings and how they help combat against condensation and mould.

“It was brilliant to get to talk to so many younger people that were at the festival. It is amazing what kind of inquisitive questions younger kids ask – it really was brilliant to hear their thoughts on Adaptavate’s approach to materials” Tom enthused.

As a result of winning the Entrepreneur of the Year award earlier this year, Tom was asked if Adaptavate could feature as a case example for a one day ‘problem solving’ accelerator hosted by Shell Make the Future and WIRED magazine. It was designed collaboratively to address how Adaptavate may overcome the 3 main challenges facing our start up. These were: scaling up, manufacturing and building a team.

Some of the most bright and entrepreneurial minds around attended and spoke during the day including Eben Upton of Raspberry Pi, Laurence Kemball-Cook of Pavegen and Blaise Bellville of Boiler Room.

The day was really interactive and informative and it was a fantastic opportunity to have input from so many business people and to hear insights surrounding some of these challenges. It is now time to put them into action!

Tom said, “This is a really exciting time at Adaptavate – with a big project coming up and being part of the Make the Future event. It was great to bounce ideas around with other business owners and innovators about overcoming challenges that are inherent in developing and scaling change-making innovations.”

“The exposure in a magazine like WIRED is brilliant as we want to raise awareness about these issues around construction waste and healthy, energy efficient buildings in the mainstream conscience.”
