Matthias Schweger

Martin Kirchlechner

What is the journey like when you study landscape architecture and wildlife ecology, and then, at the age of 24, transition into a career as a hotelier without any formal training? One thing’s for sure: the absence of prior knowledge allows room for experimentation.

Anshu Ahuja & Renée Williams

Anshu and Renée were frustrated with food waste and poor quality in food delivery. In response, they launched their business, specializing in plant-based Indian food served in reusable metal tins and distributed by bicycle.

Lok Chung

When Lok inherited his father’s funeral business, he knew he wanted to modernize it. Working against the poor reputation and neglect surrounding the process of death, he aspires to be a comforting presence for those mourning a loss.
