Piffl - For a healthy, equal and sustainable city

Parametric Solutions - AI-generated architecture for better decisions in early stages

Envue Technologies - The next generation of nanotechnology to make the cornerstones of life visible - the biomolecules!

MOUNID - 'Algae ink' is a non-toxic and biodegradable paint for textiles made from microalgae

Via an app, citizens and visitors are able to access boxes which are filled with a large selection of sports and outdoor activities, adapted to the surrounding environment. You will find the boxes in parks, by sports grounds and anywhere that offers public recreational space.

Parametric Solutions provide a platform for property developers and architects. With advanced algorithms we quickly produce a variety of building proposals in the cloud. Hundreds of building options are generated for a given site and the tool is used to investigate a large design scope in a short amount of time.

Envue’s unique combination of a hardware and software, in terms of a microscopic instrument and nanofluidic chips, offers scientists a simple tool to enter the nanoworld and study biomolecules. Our patent-pending technology allows studies of nanoobjects without any modifications to avoid biases. Our vision is to accelerate future research by empowering scientists with a solution for novel disruptive discoveries.

Through microalgae, Mounid develops a unique algae-ink colour for textile and fashion companies. Algae-ink eliminates harmful chemicals and microplastics from being used and offers the textile industry non-toxic ink that enables to design and manufacture 100% circular colourful textile products.

Flexspenser – Our solution minimizes the use of preservatives, the waste of liquids/semi-liquids, and packaging environmental footprints

Cellfion – Solving today ́s problems with tomorrows technology

Norbite – Upcycling plastic waste into healthy food solutions

Cellfion – Solving today ́s problems with tomorrows technology

Most liquid packaging cause waste and most products contain preservatives. After opened, they do not protect liquid integrity e.g.,milk becomes rancid, and the glue dries out. Flexpenser technology at a fraction of the cost protects the content after opening a package. So, it dramatically reduces preservatives and the waste flow of liquids/semi-liquids.

Membranes are a key component in energy storage devices, and they are often the part that first breaks down and needs to be replaced. Cellfion manufactures nanocellulose membranes for electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices, mainly focusing on two applications: organic redox flow batteries, a form of large-scale energy storage that can be used to support the electricity grid, and PEM electrolyzers, which are used to produce green hydrogen gas.

Norbite has developed a disruptive approach towards end-of-life polymeric materials for which there is no viable re-use or recycling solutions. Based on one specific insect, Galleria mellonella, the developed scalable process enables the insects to digest and transform plastics into proteins, lipids and bio fertilizers.

NRR renar tungmetaller från att komma ut i luft, vatten och marken genom en helt ny reningsprocess–HMEE

Vågen is a store where individuals can purchase organic products without packaging. By refilling containers with oils, beans, pasta, rice, shampoo and more, each person can reduce their negative environmental impact from packaging and food waste.

Approximately 20% of the world’s population suffers from fear of injections. By combining cold and applied pressure, the product reduces pain immediately. No single-use products are needed, making D-stract a more sustainable and cost efficient solution than those available today. Suitable for all ages, regardless of phobia or not.

Haystack is the first online dating service that enables people to get to know each other in-app by sharing fun activities, instead of judging on looks. Our vision is a world where it's fun to meet new people and where everyone is welcomed for who they are and not for what they look like.

Nordic Renew Resource offers the industry that has heavy metals in its process water and sludge a completely new technology for reducing the heavy metals and recycling them. With this business concept, we help industries and companies working towards zero emissions to be able to achieve this faster and in a circular economy. Most of the residues from the purification process can be recycled. This takes place in a "closed system" where the process can produce the energy needed for the process.
