Location: Clarion Hotel & Congress, Trondheim, Norway
Join EIT Climate-KIC for breakfast and pitches by some of the most exciting Nordic greentech start-ups.
Hear about these companies’ groundbreaking and scalable solutions to global problems while networking with like-minded peers.
This event is part of the Technoport – Deep Tech conference. We have room for 15 non-conference attendees on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you would like to purchase tickets for Technoport – Deep Tech, please do that here.
The greentech start-ups you will see pitch include:
- Modvion (SE) develops modular designs in renewable Engineered Wood Products to simplify and improve construction logistics. Currently focusing on the production of wind towers, Modvion’s patented module technology enables significantly decreased cost, efficient transportation and streamlined installation of towers exceeding 120 m. Ultimately, this results in increased cost efficiency in the harvesting of wind resources. Modvion entered the EIT Climate-KIC start-up accelerator programme in 2016 and is currently building prototypes together with industrial giant Moelven Töreboda. By 2020, the first full-scale wind turbine tower will be ready.
- Gascow (FI) turns bio-waste into usable gas and fertilizers. By adopting a holistic, circular economy approach, they look at waste as feed for a closed loop system. Gascow uses small-scale smart bio-gas units that solve waste and energy problems locally through a unique service. Beyond the circular design the team also brings a unique sense of wit with their cow-looking units, also known as the ‘gascows’. All the customer needs to do is to feed the gascow with organic waste, which in turn provides them with biogas and a cleaner environment. Gascow won the Finnish semifinals of EIT Climate-KIC’s greentech competition Climate Launchpad in 2016 and participated in the international finals in Tallinn.
- Meshcrafts (NO) develops software for e-mobility targeting the Smart City with its smart grids and smart transportation. Their vision is to provide energy with “Zero Emission, No Hassle”. They aim to realize this through SmartCharge, an open marketplace for charging electric vehicles. The team’s objective is seamless interaction between station owners and electric vehicle drivers. All this is realized through an app, which facilitates payment and localisation of charging points. In addition, Meshcraft offers real time control, automatic optimization of energy consumption, continuous analyses of user traffic and multiple payment options. Meshcrafts has been part of the EIT Climate-KIC start-up accelerator since 2015.
- Epishine (SE) is the next generation of light harvesting. Epishine’s vision is to enable the most scalable resource efficient and affordable solar module in the world, step by step. The start-up works with novel organic thin film solar cells that have multiple advantages such as scalability and indoor efficiency. The team consists of successful entrepreneurs and recognized scientists. Epishine entered the EIT Climate-KIC start-up accelerator in 2017 and has since experienced multiple successes, such as reaching the finals of both DI’s Start-up Tour and the Serendipity Challenge at Almedalen, and winning Swedbank’s Rivstart award for entrepreneurs.
- Qrrnt (NO) reduces ship operators’ fuel costs by recovering energy. The start-up’s name was inspired by the word ‘current’, and their innovative technology lies in making use of otherwise lost kinetic energy. Qrrnt is now in the phase of testing its first prototype and is expected to start trading commercially in the first quarter of 2018. The start-up puts an emphasis on the importance of local production and quality control, which is the reason for their aim to design and manufacture locally in Norway. Qrrnt originates at the EIT Climate-KIC partner university NTNU and has been part of NTNU Accel.
