Les Mini Mondes’ journey started from a devastating observation: the toy industry in France represents 75,000 tonnes of waste per year; these toys are predominantly made in China; and parents no longer feel connected to an offer that is way too gender based. The team focused on the subject with determination, interviewed more than 200 parents, and decided to shake things up a bit. Mission accomplished. Their iconic toys are made from recycled plastic, made in Brittany and are compostable. And, for every sale, 1% of the profit goes towards sending kids in need on vacation.

Presentation

Imagination Machine is a startup studio: they come up with big ideas, recruit talented entrepreneurs to work on them with them, and act as a cofounder for the long-term. They provide initial financing, a powerful network of partners in France and Silicon Valley, and intense hands-on help.

Imagination Machine is specifically focused on big ideas that improve our societies and planet. They see massive opportunities to innovate in enabling healthy daily life with good food, clean products, and healthy habits; in bringing people together to spend more time with friends, family and community; in doing more with less, by reusing goods in the circular economy or optimizing their use of existing infrastructure; in applying renewable energy technologies to new sectors and consumer populations; in bringing great lifelong education and smart media to a mass audience; and many more domains where their values align with big economic opportunities. Imagination Machine is run by Rob Spiro, an entrepreneur from Silicon Valley who made his way to France, and his team.

What they are looking for

Imagination Machine is looking for talented entrepreneurs to partner with them on their next ideas or join the teams that are growing rapidly. Entrepreneurs can be engineers, designers, business generalists, or anything else... as long as they have an entrepreneurial spirit (ready to take risks and/or with prior experience of entrepreneurship) and a strong ambition to improve the world. Entrepreneurs need to have at least 5 to 7 years of experience in their field, as their work cycles are very short and they need to rely on their expertise to go fast and be agile.

Good to know

They are remote first! Which means you can join them and work from wherever you want (or need) to be.

The Imagination Machine community is wide and strong: changing the world and building your own startup will not be a lonely process, for sure!
