Worthmore

Every year over 150 million smartphones are replaced across Europe each year. Today over 80% of those devices find their way into our drawers, wasting millions of dollars and tonnes of valuable resources. You may even have a few lying around yourself. We think this is a problem, so we developed a system that simplifies the process of converting your used phones into money for yourself or an impact donation to one of our partners in 3 easy steps. The secondhand smartphone market is expected to explode from €10 Billion today to €45 billion by the mid-2020s. Our mission is to become "what to do with your used smartphone" within the next two years and be the most efficient at capturing the supply of used devices by introducing sustainable incentives that will engage our customers to make an impact, and help us "close the loop".

make!mpact

make!mpact is a Nordic Impact Fintech startup with a focus on sustainability and impact investing. Our goal is to generate a positive societal impact by changing people’s financial behaviour.  make!mpact in a nutshell: We are not here to tell you how to live sustainable – nor are we here to tell you what is right or wrong when it comes to investing your money. We know that there are many ways in which you can make the world a better place, but we also know that one of the most effective ways to – collectively – make a difference, is by investing in companies that are helping to generate a positive societal impact. You might already now be thinking that investing is for someone with years of experience and deep industry knowledge – and of course, a lot of money to invest. While this may be true for many of the impact investors out there, it definitely shouldn’t stop you from getting started on your own impact investing journey – no matter your income or knowledge about investing and/or sustainability. Our m!club app matches the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to global listed companies that share the same values as you. Our goal is to enable you to make informed decisions about investments that align with your values represented in the 17 SDGs and thereby get you started investing with a sustainable mindset.

Veri

Veri is an early-stage Helsinki-based health tech startup on a mission to help people feel go(o)d through better metabolic health.

We're building just that. A solution that provides modern humans access to their metabolic health data through continuous glucose monitors combined with magical software providing actionable insights related to nutrition and performance. Our journey started in a hacker house in the Bay Area where three frustrated, driven-to-build-things-kind-of-minds, got together to build a product that wasn't available to us and our closest community. We are currently a 10 people team from 7 different nationalities with experience working with world-leading companies and organizations.

Cirqle

Plastic waste and single-use packaging is one of the great unsolved problems for our planet. In Denmark, we produce 844KG of household waste annually per person. Most of this packaging is used for food and beverage products and it is an increasingly large environmental challenge. At Cirqle we are driven by our mission to make single-use a thing of the past and make reuse packaging the norm. Reusing packaging reduces the impact, and greatly minimizes the natural resource use of packaging. With our pioneering reuse packaging service and technology platform, we make reuse a reality for companies in the food and beverage industry. We are already breaking new ground with our meal-kit service, but the sky's the limit when it comes to reuse packaging. With partners we cover the full supply chain from packaging production and software development to sanitation and logistics making sustainability the easy choice for our customers.

Eat Grim

Eat Grim is a platform for ugly and surplus fruits and vegetables. We are fighting one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues: about 1/3 of fruits and vegetables produced are lost for aesthetic reasons or because they are overproduced - while we are worried that we can’t feed the growing populations of the world. So in 2018, we created Eat Grim. We source the ugly and surplus produce directly from farms and bring it to the market in two ways: through a food box subscription to private consumers, making it easy for consumers to eat more sustainably. We also supply Grim produce to food businesses that want to make their sourcing more sustainable and transparent.
