Report: sharing umbrellas with Dropstop

IBS-students Katharina Jantzen and Michael Bosscher turned an idea they came up with during an entrepreneurship course into a real start-up: Dropstop! Instead of buying an umbrella when it rains, they offer an umbrella rental-service. An idea that really should catch on in a rainy country like the Netherlands, right? Their umbrellas will be conveniently located in self-service boxes all throughout the city. Customers can rent an umbrella at any time for only a few euros by using their credit- or member card.
