Kramade, a project that supports young product designers
08 / 03 / 2018
Koldobika Goikoetxea, engineer and industrial designer with an entrepreneurial spirit, cofounded his first start-up company, The Social Coin, in 2013 and since then has not stopped getting involved in high added-value projects, both with young entrepreneurs and companies. He is the founder of Kramade, a project that was started at the beginning of 2016, driven by a group of product design students that tried to make their own projects come true from the university. They failed when they experienced the difficulties involved in the entire process, from manufacturing to distribution.
Kramade’s short-term goal is to promote projects with a high added value, with the collaboration of experts, companies, and investors. A platform with a double functionality has been created: to allow the matching of projects and (companies’) interests and to offer a virtual environment where designers can follow an efficient methodology and which also supports them in the different stages to successfully launch their project.
Koldobika was the winner of the 2013 Spanish edition of the One Day Design Challenge. His project The Water Circle, developed along with Eloi Bellart and Iván Pajares, received the award of the jury for its didactic approach to the natural cycle of water, whose aim was to teach children the values of sustainability while showing them as well the importance of personal hygiene.
