The online platform Make It Good Again aims to break with the throw-away society by making electronic repairs more accessible.
The Jury says
The potential scale of this solution is very interesting and can have many positive ripple effects. It could raise the value of products that can be repaired and challenge the companies that speculate in designing products that cannot. The potential application in a larger financial ecosystem is huge. There’s a major value in this for insurance companies, and in political contexts, people are talking about the consumer’s “right to repair” from a sustainability point of view.This sort of platform is not new, but the difference here is that they focus on specialised electronics, which can be difficult to get fixed. They could create a whole new marketplace.
