Sixteen young companies from six countries with new ideas and concepts
For the first time, Kind + Jugend is offering young, international, up-and-coming companies the opportunity to present themselves in the context of a Start-up Area. The Start-up Area is already fully booked with 16 providers. No wonder, because the opportunity to exhibit at the world’s leading trade fair for the baby and toddler outfitting industry at favourable conditions can be an important building block for success, especially for a young company. In total, over 1,200 companies from around 50 countries will be exhibiting at Kind + Jugend from 19 to 22 September 2019.
The 16 start-ups come from six countries, from Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Japan and the Netherlands.
The prerequisites for participation in the Start-up Area are that a company may not have existed for more than ten years and not yet have participated in Kind + Jugend as an exhibitor. Of course, it must be possible to assign the products shown to the exhibition segments of the trade fair. A look at the diverse assortment of the 16 participants in the Start-up Area shows: these offerings are exceptionally well-suited to the theme worlds of Kind + Jugend.

Overview of the products:
• A provider from the Netherlands is showing imaginative mobiles for children’s rooms (Baby Bello, Netherlands).
• A German-Dutch company has tackled the wish to reduce diaper trash. The result is a diaper system that combines a soft, washable outer diaper and a just as reusable insert made of bamboo. Bamboo is known to be especially absorbent and is also a quick growing raw material (bada&bou, Germany).
• Dirty laundry, not least cloth diapers, often need to be soaked before washing, not always an appetising task. An Australian company has thought up a clever two-bucket solution for this problem. The preparation for washing is thus easier and hygienic (Buderum Bucket Company, Australia).

• Biological care products for babies and toddlers are presented by a company from Parma in Italy (Harmonianat srl, Italy).
• A company from Germany is presenting clever “stacking blocks”. They encourage kids to balance and play, thus promoting exercise and a sense of balance (jaboo GmbH, Germany).
• A company from Paris has developed a special attachment for baby bottles. It simplifies the preparation of baby food on the go and while travelling (Kiddo / Ava Inc., France).
• A French company has specialised in objects and toys made of environmentally-friendly and renewable raw materials and combined them with chargeable solar cells (Litogami SAS, France).
• A company from La Celle St. Cloud, France is bringing a completely compatible auxiliary wheel with an electric motor for prams with it to Kind + Jugend. The auxiliary wheel can be mounted in a minute and can provide pushing assistance for up to 30 kilometres (MOBINOV sarl, France).
• Premium carrying bags in an exclusive design, highly suited for everyday use and sustainably produced in Berlin (Rookie Berlin GmbH, Germany).
• A company from Australia presents a bottle adapted to all baby needs. Among other features, the bottle offers a high level of drinking and breathing comfort for the child (Savvybaby Pty Ltd, Australia).
