The 3 Ps become 4 Ps

Persist, our fourth P. Keep going. It’s exactly what the founders know all about. They went and are still looking for sustainable developments for a better world, through trial and error. And if you fall seven times, get up eight.

People

People, the people. The basis of our society. Taking care of each other, that's what it's all about. U2P invests in its own employees as well as in people outside the organization. With its search for sustainable solutions, U2P strives for a beautiful, clean world. That is how we take care of the people, because that is our duty.

Profit

The second P represents the economic value of a company. Not unimportant, because thanks to this P we can improve the other dimensions. More return means investing more in green solutions.

Planet

Our world today has many troubling problems. U2Pgroup takes its responsibility and goes for a sustainable invasion.
Towards a better world.

Persist

Persist, our fourth P. Keep going. Let that be exactly what the founders know all about. They went and are still looking for sustainable developments for a better world, through trial and error. And if you fall seven times, get up eight times.

Problems as an engine for positive solutions

The founders once worked on mopeds and cars, but soon their interest in technology expanded to environmentally friendly challenges. As students they were selected for the World Solar Challenge project. An international competition in which students drive a self-built solar-powered car from the north to the south of Australia, a distance of 3021 km. During the project, the team members did not only acquire technical knowledge. They got to know themselves and came into contact with a qualitative network. With that knowledge and experience, the partners started Futech (Future Technology), a fast-growing company in solar panels. Soon, iLumen was also founded, a company that monitors the optimal functioning of solar panel installations and extends their lifespan. fterwards, the innovative and patented products follow each other in quick succession. The companies, products and ideas are successful in Belgium and abroad. Their secret? Daring to believe in a story that does not seem obvious.

Today the U2Pgroup is a holding company that already coordinates a total of six companies. Six companies that each strive for an ideal world in their own way.

Futech, a first big step

Everyone talks about green energy, but nobody does anything. That line of thought laid the foundation for Futech. The founders, who have known each other since the story with the solar car, decided to do something. This is how Futech FutureTechnology) was born, a company specialized in solar panels. Futech is growing very fast because the company has a lot of in-house knowledge.

The solar panel parks for industrial projects that Futech first focused on were quickly supplemented by the private market. Futech opted for a service model, in which electricity is sold instead of the panels themselves. This way, private individuals should not invest in solar panels and the threshold to green energy is lowered so that Joe Average also has easy access to the energy of the future.

iLumen

Futech was quickly successful in Belgium and abroad. But the founders kept striving for better. They like challenges. Together with their employees, the founders searched for a solution to the problems that owners of solar panels were facing. For this reason, iLumen was created. A company that monitors the optimal functioning of solar panel installations and extends their lifespan. Here too, with the slogan: problems as an engine for positive solutions. iLumen has already developed six patented, innovative products that contribute to a green future.

IntuEdrive

The fact that U2P has co-invested has great value, of course, but the
sounding board is priceless.

“We got to know one of the founders of U2P as a mentor when we were selected as a start-up by Start-it @ KBC. We could not have imagined a better sounding board for our company. Ellio is working on the very first speed E-bike with two-wheel drive. A project that requires capital, but also business and technical insight. The founders of U2P followed a similar journey with innovative technology and therefore ask the right questions at the righttime. The fact that U2P also invested has great value, of course, but the sounding board is priceless. ” Jorrit Heidbuchel, Ellio, intuedrive.com

Secury 360

They first make sure the new product proves itself before making it known to the world.

“When looking for suitable partners for Secury 360, we had set ourselves a number of important conditions: the same vision, dream big but always with our feet on the ground, experience in product development and in international distribution. With U2P we found a partner that meets all these conditions. Moreover, we knew one of the founders as someone you can always turn to for the right advice. I am also impressed by the good mentality that prevails at U2P. They first have a new product prove itself before making it known to the world. We would also like to apply this strategy in our start-up. Our ambition is to conquer the market by developing a working concept and delivering on what we promise. Through strategic exercises with the people of U2P we always maintain a healthy and realistic view of the future. ” Frederick Jacobs, Secury 360, secury-360.com/

Trenara encourages its users to exercise and is the perfect coach in achieving their goals.

“When Trenara was not an app but an Excel file, we immediately sought advice from the U2P Group because they are very adept at gaining insights in start-ups. We soon got an answer to the question: ‘is our dream viable?’ Yes, indeed! As business managers, we are mainly concerned with the micromanagement of the start-up, while U2P Group keeps an overview from a helicopter view and explores further horizons. Thanks to this collaboration, we can effectively realize our ambition to grow the app at home and abroad. An additional advantage to our partnership is that one of the founders of U2P himself is an avid endurance athlete and can accurately assess our product. His insights help us to expand the app and his enthusiasm naturally stimulates ours. ” Christophe Roosen and Gert Moermans, Trenara, trenara.com
