It has been said that there are as many types of curry as there are people who make them. And now a startup in northern Germany is tapping this variety to inject a bit of spice into social entrepreneurship.
College Curries aims to help economically disadvantaged families in India pay the required university fees for their children by giving Indian housewives the opportunity to market their personal curry mixture in Europe.
The curry mixtures are produced as powder in Germany by an external partner in organic quality and packaged in a workshop for people with disabilities. In addition to bringing authentic curries into German kitchens and supporting education in India, the company connects different worlds.
For its idea, the startup has been awarded the title “Excellent Place 2018” for Schleswig-Holstein by “Germany – Land of Ideas,” an initiative of Germany’s federal government and the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
