WEPA Ventures

WEPA Ventures is our corporate venturing arm through which we manage our start-up investments and collaborations.

We invest in companies and start-ups that focus their business model on sustainable hygiene solutions or offer products in the areas of alternative raw materials and sustainable packaging.

In addition, we are building our own start-ups that contribute to our mission:
To offer products and concepts that provide a safe hygiene experience and contribute to the well-being of millions of consumers across Europe - every day, everywhere.
