A new breed of technology for people and the planet.
Good Tech is the best potential solution for a real need, avoiding harm to humans as well as planet earth. It is built from sustainable materials, designed to be repaired, to last long, and to be fully recycable.
The Good Tech Alliance innovates, accelerates and scales these solutions so that they become ready-to-order and a true alternative for everyone.
The Good Tech Alliance fosters a community of makers, designers, engineers and scientists who innovate, develop and prototype good tech. In the long term the aim is to substitute
consumer and household goods with good tech alternatives. Currently the main focus lies on basic needs for off-grid environments.
Enjoy long, hot showers while saving water and energy with this open source, hot water recycling system for super efficient personal hygiene. The shower adapter captures the hot water from the drain, purifies it with an antibacterial filter, and pumps it directly back to the showerhead.
The recycled water is of high quality, exceeds USA and EU standards for drinking water and consumes 10 times less energy and water compared to a normal shower.
Prototypes are being implemented in realistic use case scenarios to test their functionality from a user perspective and gain insights for further iterations. To establish a permanent
testing ground the good tech alliance collaboratively acquired a 180.000sqm large project space between Hamburg and Berlin: The former Zukunftszentrum Nieklitz.
The project community is currently doing the groundwork - setting up basic infrastructure and reviving the area. Are you looking for a beautiful and still a bit improvised environment ? Or would you like to visit and give us a hand? Please contact Jannis (email@example.com)
We are currently structuring a first of its kind accelerator program focussing on transparent, modular, long-lasting, sustainable products. A tailor-made six-months acceleration process,
experienced mentors, and a dedicated community of 300+ tinkerers, coders, and nerds will be at your disposal with only one mission: bringing sustainable tech into mainstream.
We will accept applications for the first GT 2017 batch right here from January to February 2017. We´ll inform you about the launch if you submit your email.
Obviously better technology will only make a difference if it´s actually used by many people. Therefore scaling new products is a key aspect of what we do.
For years we saw way too much real potential of open technology living in the shadows of some nerdy niche…
Depending from the specifics together with our partners we offer barter deals, sponsorings, investment with and without equity or revenue shares, or any other setup it takes to reach our goals together.
We consider the following four aspects to be key to truly innovative, sustainable business around good tech and therefore will research them and their potential effects in-depth in 2017.
The networked world of today offers huge potential for business model innovations: models based on renting, sharing, co-owning, lending, temporary ownership as well as financial incentive models for more sustainable (and even less) consumption.
Science tells us that we have roughly 20 years left to fundamentally turn around our economy. Designing a product not just for vertical scaling, but from day one with replicability and adaptability in mind, holds the potential to spread a good tech solution wider, faster.
There´s a vicious circle of defining social status by having the latest stuff, abundant advertising that promotes happiness via passive throw-away consumption. Fundamentally more sustainable lifestyles need to become the new cool, and we aim to write a part of this story.
Information technologies increasingly enable local economies of scope with a multitude of niche producers to serve local markets with custom-tailored goods and tools better than centralized systems of mass production. We anticipate a fundamental shift in the modes of production within a decade, with huge potential for transiting towards more sustainability.
