When we talk about the energy mix of the future, photovoltaics play an increasing role. The technology is simple, efficient and cost-effective.

But what actually happens to old or damaged solar modules? The Rinovasol group  specialises in refurbishing used solar and photovoltaic panels. This significantly extends their life cycles and also creates a sustainable supply for the increasing demand.

If modules can no longer be refurbished, Rinovasol also takes over the recycling and returns the processed materials such as aluminium, plastic, glass or silicon and the precious metals to the cycle.

With this innovative business model, Rinovasol has already become the technology leader.

No one can report on this more captivatingly and passionately than the movers and shakers behind Rinovasol. Josef Gmeiner, CEO, and Toralf Nitsch, COO, will tell us more about their motivation and the future prospects of Europe's largest solution provider for the recycling and repair of solar modules during their online company presentation. They will also be happy to answer your questions. Christin Friedrich, CEO of Innovestment, will lead the discussion.

We look forward to seeing you!

"One does not talk about money" - but why not? We put an end to this taboo and invite you to participate. On our monthly Money Wednesday we will be dealing with the topic of finance in all its facets in a relaxed atmosphere.

We look forward to your participation and are open to your questions!

Target group: People who understand economic interrelationships as a component of our society and want to help shape them.

Sustainable financial education: Why it is so important to talk about money within the family

"I'm almost 18 and I don't know anything about taxes, rent or insurance. But I can write a poetry analysis. In 4 languages." - this tweet by student Naina went viral six years ago. The main criticism was that too little was taught about finance at school.

This has not changed much to this day. In 2017, ING-DiBa published a study on financial education in Europe, in which Germany ranked second to last.

The logical consequence: Ideally, financial education begins in the parental home. Because this is where children have their first contact with money, and quite early. Pocket money is often the order of the day from the age of four. From the age of a teenager at the latest, notes instead of toys are on the wish list anyway.

However, talking is even more important than giving. Only by talking to children about money can they be sensitised to the topic and learn about its value and how to manage it.

On Money Wednesday we talk to Michael Hildebrandt and Susanne Gundel. Both are experienced in investing (also at Innovestment), both have children, albeit at completely different ages.

In the talk with Christin Friedrich, managing partner of Innovestment, they talk about how they introduced their offspring to the topic of finances, how this changed their approach to money and what they contribute to their children's financial independence. We'll also talk about what alternatives there are to classic money gifts.

We look forward to your participation and are eager to hear your questions and own experiences during the live webinar!

Toralf Nitsch

knows the challenge as an entrepreneur: growth needs capital. As COO of Rinovasol, he is currently expanding production capacities for the refurbishment and recycling of solar modules. A practical example of how a tangible investment in a company not only pays off in terms of a business idea, but also in terms of lasting values such as hardware and infrastructure.

Rainer Weitzel

has been at home in sales, marketing and partner management for many years, since 2019 for the Hamburg-based impact investor Jäderberg & Cie. What makes a tangible asset investment an impact investment for him? To put it bluntly: when investors use their capital to achieve real sustainability instead of just betting on it on the stock market.

Silke Bittmann

is an expert in sustainable and social capital investments. For the trained banker and insurance broker, it is important to invest money in a meaningful way and thus give it a positive character and actually more value. Tangible assets play a decisive role in this. Her motto: "Savings books are books you can save!"

Christin Friedrich

is the managing partner of Innovestment and an entrepreneur by conviction. She sees uncomplicated, low-cost financing options as the basis for economic growth. At the same time, she wants to inspire even more people for alternative forms of financing with diverse asset investments.  Christin will moderate the event. 

More information

With the Innovestment-Talk "Money Wednesday" we want to share knowledge, create understanding for financial topics and create new impulses and perspectives on economic and social connections.  

Innovestment stands for a new generation of financial services and for a democratization of capital. For us, this clearly involves open communication that goes beyond the boundaries of the company and opens up new horizons. Only in this way can we all form our own opinions on economic issues, question existing structures in the world of finance and create new ways of doing things that do justice to all of us.

One component of this can be to talk about what we can do with our money and what it can do for us and others. After all, in the savings account, our money is of no use to anyone - except the bank. The moment we invest it in a targeted manner, we make an active contribution to a functioning economy from which everyone benefits.

We are looking forward to your input.

In the past years, we have held over 100 lectures and occupied panels, both nationally in Germany and in Europe. Our topics include digital financing, entrepreneurship and investment. You will find a selection among the completed events. We also enjoy discussing with you and your community. Please feel free to contact us. You can find our contact details here.

Rinovasol online presentation: Drive the energy transition with an investment in Rinovasol: More sustainability through the refurbishment and recycling of solar modules

Investments in sustainable real assets are becoming increasingly popular. No wonder: they represent real values with potential for growth. Unlike monetary assets, they are not subject to the low interest rate policy and develop independently of inflation. And there are also no price fluctuations as with shares.

Classic tangible assets are real estate or gold. But the world of tangible asset investments has so much more to offer! For example, the possibility of also investing in companies - and with a thoroughly sustainable approach that has an impact on both the environment and the economy.  

This is still uncharted territory for many investors. At our Money Wednesday, we g0t to the bottom of the issue of real assets and looked at it from different angles. With us:

As an entrepreneur, Toralf Nitsch knows the challenge: growth needs capital. As COO of Rinovasol, he is currently expanding production capacities for the refurbishment and recycling of solar modules...

Rainer Weitzel has been at home in sales, marketing and partner management for many years, since 2019 for the Hamburg-based impact investor Jäderberg & Cie.

Webinar: JC Sandalwood Multitalented Sandalwood

A journey to Australia. Together with Peter Jäderberg, founder and managing director of Jäderberg & Cie. we will take you into the impressive world of sandalwood. Even though we will probably not be able to convey the scent to you at this online event, the healing effects are surprising for many of us. Allow yourself this little mental time-out with numerous impressions from the JC plantations in Australia. Perhaps you too will want to become a part of this outstanding impact investment afterwards.

Sandalwood is extraordinary. It has two basic properties that make it so desirable: its fragrance and its healing power. This is especially true for the precious essential oil. It is used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine and in many cultural and religious acts, especially in Asia. In the western world, the essential oil of sandalwood is an important ingredient in high-priced perfumes, in serious natural cosmetics and, in the future, in aromatherapy, food flavouring and the pharmaceutical industry.

Money-Mittwoch: Financial investment brokerage and digitalisation: A perfect match

"People don't talk about money" - but why not? Hans-Helmuth Föh has been doing so for a long time and with enthusiasm. He is a co-shareholder of Innovestment GmbH - and at the same time an experienced financial investment advisor who has been established in the world of traditional capital investments for years with his company Anlagenwert Hamburg.

What motivates his commitment to Innovestment as a digital investment and financing platform? Where does he see the opportunities, where the risks of digitalisation in financial investment? In conversation with Innovestment Managing Director Christin Friedrich, two generations come together - and two worlds that turn out to be a perfect match: that of traditional financial investment brokerage and that of digital platforms.
