The first sustainability co-creation accelerator in the Baltics – Future Hub – has kicked-off its programme by announcing the 10 GreenTech startups selected for the accelerator to develop solutions for sustainability challenges during the 2-month program.
Five local organisations – Swedbank Latvija, Latvenergo, Rimi Baltic, Orkla Latvija, and Rigas City Council – presented business sustainability challenges for the accelerator programme, which picked 10 European GreenTech startups, including Miils and Parking Energy from Finland; and Eachthing and Plant Jammer from Denmark.
“A startup whose innovative idea is its core business and therefore the centre of its attention is able to provide our customers and us with a value-added solution, allowing ourselves to set our innovation capacity aside for our core, our infrastructure development. This is the biggest benefit of open innovation in our eyes,” CEO of Swedbank Latvia Reinis Rubenis said in a statement.
“Our goal with Future Hub accelerator is to focus more attention on co-creation as a business development model. We are happy to spread the spirit of collaboration, and we are happy to be joined by other companies with similar open mindsets. Collaboration takes us further than the competition,” Rubenis said.
