Early-Stage Start-Ups

We do not act as typical investor, but if you are still pre-seed and offer a solution within our innovation focus and want to profit from the REHAU network (Market Access, Technology, Know-How feel free to contact us. Do also not hesitate in case you are currently investigating a problem within our innovation focus without having a concrete solution & business model already.

Our innovation focus.

Our innovation focus lies on fields where we see substantial unmet needs in the market and can bring in our strengths and assets as part of the REHAU group to build a solution. Currently we focus on the following so-called “opportunity areas”:

Circularity and urban mining

Cirularity & Urban Mining: Building needs to become more sustainable and we need to focus on our existing building stock. Making use of the materials used in existing buildings has enormous potential, either for even reusing directly or via recycling and bringing them back to material cycle. This saves Co2 and contributes positively to our environment.

“The construction sector is accountable for 37% of global emissions and is by far the largest emitter of greenhouse gases” (UN Environment Programme)

“With rising material and land costs as well as more attention driven towards green building standards, we have to think differently about how we build, the materials we use and where we build.” (Wanona Satcher – Urban designer)

We regard especially the following challenges as attractive:

  • (Digital) assessment of the building: Required enabler for reuse and recycling and thus a driver for more sustainability
  • Enable & optimize recycling processes to enhance circularity
  • Capture material streams 
     

Pitch your perspectives and ideas

 

>70% of building material is not recycled today

Energetic renovation & energy efficiency

The energetic consumption of a building is determined by a) the energetic standard of the building (façthe, windows, insulation, heating system) and b) the actual energy consumption based on e.g. heating and cooling behaviour.

We regard especially the following challenges as attractive:

  • (Digital) assessment of the building as basis the energetic status quo and for improvements, investments and managing operating data
  • Streamline processes for renovation projects: Making renovation easy for customers by bringing in transparency, consulting, standardised execution  
  • Façade and window related renovation: The shell of a building has substantial influence on the energetic performance of a building
  • Operating data and optimizing building operation: An average performance gap between planned energy consumption and actual required energy of 30% indicates that we intelligent systems we can save massive amounts of energy and costs even with the existing systems
     

Pitch your perspectives and ideas

 

Average performance gap between actual and planned operating costs 30% 

Actual renovation quota: 0.7%

Renovation quote required to meet climate goals: 2%

Housing densification & valuation

Living & housing space, especially in urban areas is scarce. Using existing sealed space more effectively is crucial. Valuation of real estate in time of increasing renovation pressure and fluctuating housing prices a  relevant challenge for real estate decision makers.

We regard especially the following challenges as attractive:

  • Transformation of existing (outdated) office space: Existing office space in Mid-Europe is widely outdated and 
  • (Re-)densification: Intensifying usage of existing buildings, e.g. via adding storeys to buildings, Manage/ utilize vacant buildings, transform office space into residential space 
  • Identification of urban development areas and pricing forecast: In times of increasing regulation pressure of existing buildings and dynamic price developments making investment decisions and valuations in the real estate environment became very challenging
     

Pitch your perspectives and ideas

 

75% of decision makers claim that current real estate valuation do not fit with actual value

Alone in Germany by adding storeys we could leverage a potential of 100.000+ flats
