Dripl founders

The Source has just completed its second investment of 2023. Having already taken a stake in Qallo last April, Spadel’s venture capital fund has today announced its investment in another promising Belgian start-up: Dripl, founded in 2020 by Colin Deblonde and Lucas Moreau. The impact start-up offers companies a healthier, more sustainable alternative to traditional sodas, thanks to a machine that produces natural, low-calorie, low-sugar sodas on site, without disposable packaging.
