Manifesto

Some of us are born with an innate drive to change, to improve things around us - we know we can make it better. And so, we do. We venture into the unknown and we try and make the world a better place. So, we keep trying, and trying, and trying to make it better.
We turn the world around until we make it happen.

We Spin Ventures.
We turn the world around. We make it better. We make it happen. Our Ventures

Approach

We develop ventures to solve society’s challenges by bringing together inventors, investors and corporates. For these solutions to be effective in the short term and sustainable in the long term, they need to provide a new way to solve an old problem. In our view, it’s all about the people.

Make it better

CHALLENGE 1
Upcycling Waste Better.
CHALLENGE 2
Move Better.

Our planet is facing its biggest threat yet. By 2050 our oceans will contain more plastic than fish. The concept of “sustainability” has become a strategic imperative for corporations. Over the past 20 years we’ve seen a major corporate PR effort focus on this problem, which has resulted in an attempt to inhibit specific consumer behaviours, like plastic consumption. The concept of a circular economy presents an alternative model where goods are transformed “circularly” in a process, opposed to goods being consumed linearly. While new manufacturing technologies and the introduction of innovative materials and textiles are creating a new narrative and demand for products that promote a circular economy, it’s all just too expensive for the average person. Upcycled goods come with a premium price, and there’s little incentive for people to recycle, reuse and repurpose goods. Whether it’s designing products people want that are both sustainable and affordable, creating new materials with unseen textures, or giving people a tangible economic incentive to collect or replace toxic materials, we know there are entrepreneurs out there trying to make it happen. Meanwhile, big companies are looking for ways to save the planet and investors want to see it all come to life. Come and join us!

GOAL

Create more value from upcycling waste.

OBJECTIVE

Transform 5 M kg of Plastic Waste into value.

STRATEGIES

Incentivise & reward collection of materials, devise new collection methods, drive mass productions & demand of up-cycled goods, promote circular economy models.

#Kg of Waste - Plastic

We believe that the ability of an individual to move is key to any society’s productivity and value creation. Mobility should be free. The Global Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Market was valued at $24 BLN in 2018 and is expected to reach $230B by the end of 2025, growing with a CAGR of 32.6% over the period from 2019 to 2025. Investment in new mobility grew to $1B in 2018, but 34% of resources allocated don’t transform into value because of driver behavioural risks, lack of availability of vectors, and capital intensity required to maintain and replace vectors is prohibitive. Automotive, technology and insurance industries are connecting, and entrepreneurs have spotted the opportunity to solve this problem, by creating multi-electric vehicles (scooters, e-bikes and cars) that will provide free, optimised mobility. Business game-changers like GaiaGo are developing a sustainable vehicle platform for the neighbourhood, by using advertising revenues to subsidise cost and AI data analytics to provide a better journey. Advertisers will use purchased mobility hours to engage with and secure leads in GaiaGo buildings  – to secure growth while reducing capital intensity and the maintenance costs typically associated with mobility ventures. Come and join us!
