Responsible innovation: principles that lead startups to success & sustainability

#masterclass

Speaker: Audronė Alijošiutė-Paulauskienė, Expert of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development Policy at Baltic Environmental Forum Lithuania.

Topic: Innovation should not be just a new product or service; it should respond to the grand challenges of our time and take care of the future. Today’s sustainability challenges – like climate change – are complex, multilayer, uncertain‚ divisible into sub-problems. In other words, they are ‘wicked’. What are the principles of responsible innovation, what questions should be answered before novel products, processes, business models are in the market – let’s explore this topic together.

The secrets to getting your green business funded

#fireside_chat

Speakers: Florent Héroguel, Co-founder & COO of Bloom Biorenewables; Simon Bushell, Founder & CEO of Sympower; Jesse Khanh Tran, Co-founder & CEO of Rens Original.

Topic: Making a startup successful is a challenge in itself, but scaling a green business is an even harder journey. However, ClimateLaunchpad's alumni are here to prove that this journey is worth taking! The founders of three successful startup companies are -virtually- sitting together to have a chat about their green journeys, and discuss the lessons learned while raising funds.

This year, Bloom Biorenewables has raised €3.9 million with the support of Bill Gates, Sympower has raised €5.2 million in a Series B round, while RENS Original is successfully running their second crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter (their first Kickstarter launch raised more than half a million dollars and became the most successful fashion Kickstarter campaign in the Nordics). The founders of these companies definitely have a lot to share!
