What started as a hobby four years ago, led Clemens Pompeÿ and Christian Schweizer to jointly found prototype.club in February 2022. During his time as a founder in Silicon Valley for a blockchain startup, Clemens often wondered if today’s solutions are on track for tomorrow’s problems – even though it was not yet clear whether this problem would even exist in the future.
While working as a management consultant and later as an innovation manager in a large corporation, he could always see that the experts in specialist departments had many small ideas for today’s problems. Their solutions would not only simplify their daily work, but also save the company real money through these process optimizations. However, the purchasing department would always put them off with “next year” since the order for the improvement would have been too small.
