NORTHEAST WISCONSIN – NEW Compost LLC, an eco-friendly startup run by entrepreneur Connor Freimuth, won the NEW Launch Alliance Pitch Event held at TitletownTech late last month.

Freimuth said NEW Compost LLC is guided by the principle that soil health is public health.

“Sixty percent of organic waste materials go to Wisconsin landfills, and our food is becoming less nutritious,” he said. “The startup offers both products and services to help stem these issues.”

Partnering with a plant cultivator, Freimuth said NEW Compost LLC utilizes sustainable eco-friendly organic products and methodologies to reduce the need for century-old, conventional cultivation practices. 

As the winner, Freimuth was awarded $2,000.

Preempt Physical Therapy LLC (presented by Dr. Sara Ziegele of Oshkosh) and Kids in Combat Boots (presented by Deanne Herber of Sheboygan) took second and third place, respectively. 

The three winning entries emerged from a group of 12 entrepreneurial pitches that had advanced from local pitch competitions held across Northeast Wisconsin.

Along with receiving prize money, the three winners will be invited to give an update to a wider investor and business audience during the New North Summit June 6 at Lambeau Field.

“It was impressive to see the high number of great business ideas brought forward by our New North entrepreneurial community,” Barb LaMue, president/CEO of New North Inc., said. “We look forward to watching all of the participating startups grow in the coming months and years.”
