SSK&W has advised CofounderZone, business angels, and Ciech Ventures on their investment in coffee waste processing company Ecobean. Sole practitioner Marta Malasiewicz reportedly advised Ecobean.
According to SSK&W, “Ecobean – founded, among others, by Marcin Koziorowski and Kacper Kossowski – has developed a technology for processing coffee waste into sustainable materials – coffee oil, antioxidants, lactic acid, protein additives, and coffee lignin – which are direct alternatives to products currently widely used by various industries: food, cosmetics, processing, and pharmaceutical industries.”
CofounderZone is a platform connecting entrepreneurs with start-ups. According to SSK&W, “the fund works closely with the business angels network it has created, which provides added value through an individual approach to structuring and financing transactions on the private market and uses the substantive potential, contacts, and experience of its members.”
Ciech Ventures is a corporate VC fund wholly owned by Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed Ciech S.A.
SSK&W’s team included Partner Szymon Syp and Counsel Iga Wojtczak-Opala.
