Describe the investment opportunity

Between 2017-18 the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) investigated the potential market size for the Innovative Toilets, a work initiated by the Gates Foundation, which is estimated at $8 Billion per year. The European market research for eco-friendly toilets starts with the following Market definition: “Eco-Friendly toilets or Eco-Toilets have emerged out as highly innovative and environment friendly alternative to the traditional toilets, because they use either less water or none at all”. It corresponds to Low Flow & Vacuum Assisted Toilets (66.5%), Faucet/Sink Integrated Toilets (20.2%), and Waterless/Bio-composting Toilets (13.3%).” The potential for eco-friendly toilets in Europe was 340.92M USD in 2018 and is predicted to reach 490.68 M€ in 2026, resulting in a growth rate of 4.7%. So what for WeCo: The French eco and portable toilet market is the largest in Europe (89.3M$ euros by 2026). Germany (73M€ by 2026) is the second largest market. Two of our shareholders are German and conducted a market analysis of German-speaking countries: the need for public toilets in these countries is high and increases, especially in the densely populated urban areas in Germany where we are starting our business development operations campaign. The eco-friendly European market report confirmed that Europe shall be our first targeted market for our so-called “ecological toilets”.Considering our French-German team of shareholders, from the beginning we focused on both countries where the potential is the highest. But we also have other projects and partners in Europe (Belgium, Switzerland) and Africa (Zambia and Senegal).

There is an increasing competition for land between food production and solar power. We are developing highly efficient and translucent photovoltaic modules for agrivoltaics, aiming to combine solar energy and agriculture without trade-offs. Our THEIA solar module enables a dynamic adjustment of light on crops, becoming an agronomic tool to maximise agricultural yield. The solar installation therefore replaces shading screens used to protect crops such as berries - a potential of 300 GWp in Europe.

After several months of production in our pilot farm, we currently master all the processes and sell all of our productions. Consequently, we are planning our scale-up and our next fundraising of 6 M€, in order to go from a pilot farm to an industrial one: our scaled-up farm, Mangrove #1, will allow us to produce 25 tons of shrimps a year, and 50 tons of vegetables, on a surface of 1,5 hectare. This farm should start being operated in 2022 and generate about 1,250 million euros a year. This next fundraising will also be crucial to: - Recruit 10 more employees, one half for the production and R&D and the other for all the support functions - Continue our R&D and improve our process and productivity - Invest in key support elements, such as marketing and IP for instance Our Serie A fundraising will be completed by loans and grants (with one part already secured among famous and recognized public financers).
