Rodinia Generation

Rodinia Generation was created, with one goal in mind: Changing the fashion industry for the better. With a strong ambition to drive forward the transformation, from being one of the world’s most polluting industries to becoming a digital and sustainable one, The Green Fashion Factory was setup in Copenhagen in 2020, where we produce clothes sustainably and ultra-fast. Rodinia has been recognized by fashion companies, investors and public funding bodies (i.e. Innovation Fund Denmark) incl. the European Patent-office and has secured €2M from investors and grants.

Ceretai

Ceretai develops AI software and services to help the media and entertainment industries improve diversity and equality in TV programs, movies and other media content. In the Western world we consume up to 10 hours of media every day - news, Netflix, social media, you name it. Through this media we are shown a biased image of the world - for example, only 30% of speaking roles in cinema movies globally are given to women, and only 1% of characters in movies have functional limitations. This of course affects our view of the world, teaching us biases and contributing to an unsustainable world of discrimination and segregation. At the same time, national and international governmental bodies in the media industry are focusing very hard on exactly these issues. Just like in other industries, authorities like the European Broadcasting Union and national public service regulators are looking at the UN sustainability goals and trying to find ways to increased gender equality (goal no. 5) and decreased inequalitites (goal no. 10). Research shows that 80% of movie and TV audiences want to change the state of diversity in media and entertainment. "Newcomers" like Netflix continue to steal audiences with norm-breaking series showing a different picture of the world - one that includes a diversity of stories and people. At Ceretai we have made it our mission to support the media industry in creating more diversity in their content. We have built a SaaS solution, the Diversity Dashboard, that automatically analyses any given media file for gender and age representation, and we continue to develop it to cover more grounds for discrimination. We also provide services for creating awareness and fostering change within European media organisations, for example workshops and reports. The idea that became Ceretai was sparked in late 2017, in the wake of the Me Too campaign, when the founders grew tired of not finding entertainment that matched their values. Realising how unconsciously biased we all are, the company was founded in early 2018 with the idea of building an automated tool for detecting norms and stereotypes in popular culture. Our mission has stayed the same: contributing to a more equal and tolerant world by using technology to create awareness and change.

Flox

Flox is an agtech startup which wants to use robotics and AI to enhance farmers' lives. The worst thing for a farmer is to see their crops destroyed and, nowadays, one of the main causes of that are wild animals. Damages amount to billions just in Sweden, but the problem is global and there are currently no efficient solutions. At Flox we use autonomous drones and AI-based image recognition to create virtual fences around the cultivated areas to protect farmers' properties from wild animals such as wild boars and roe deers.

Gimi

Gimi is a Swedish startup that was founded in 2015 (then called Veckopengen) by Philip Haglund. Gimi's aim is to provide children and young people with financial education in a fun and interactive way. Gimi provides an education app where children can handle their pocket money and where parents can give the weekly or monthly allowance digitally. Together with the Gimi card (a prepaid Mastercard) Gimi gives children both theoretical education and practical exercises in personal finance. The app is based on in-depth research in psychology, didactics and economics developed in collaboration with universities and educational institutions in Sweden as well as abroad. Gimi's goal is for all children to grow up and become financially independent. To do that we are working in the frontline for technical development and inspirational content. Hope you want to be a part of that journey!

Poikilingo

Poikilingo is developing an adaptive language learning app for bilingual children, where social and cultural awareness are at the heart of our concept. Our program focuses on the cultural aspects of the language being learned, as we believe that cracking the social code is as important as learning vocabulary and pronunciation. This promotes a sense of belonging which will positively impact the child's learning process. We believe that each child is unique, so each of them deserves a study program that takes into consideration their peculiarities. The customized plan mixes activities, videos, songs and games, and adapts its level of difficulty according to the speed at which the child learns. We follow a consolidated learning approach that teaches different subjects through the language, all created by educational experts and aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. But the game-changing experience that Poikilingo brings into the market is based on animated stories where an avatar of the child goes through the culture clashes between her own culture and the one she is learning about. In societies with a high number of immigrants, it can both ease the integration of immigrant children, and also help to preserve the heritage language of descendants.

Sseguku

Sseguku has created a platform that can connect Danish lenders with small businesses in Uganda to create financial inclusion for these companies with the use of cloud-based technologies and mobile money. What: The vast majority of small businesses in Uganda do not have the opportunity to borrow from the bank for the establishment and operation of their business. Therefore, the opportunities for development and employment that are necessary to create good living conditions in the country are not created. Microloans are a proven method to remedy this problem. There are others than Sseguku that provide microloans in Uganda, but the need is far greater than the supply. In Denmark, there are opportunities to make contributions to aid organizations and also opportunities to invest sustainably through investment associations, but no other options than Sseguku to provide loans to specific companies and with the opportunity for returns to the lender. Sseguku solves the challenges both in Uganda and in Denmark by establishing a peer-to-peer lending platform where Danish lenders can help finance loans to specific companies identified and assessed by Sseguku's subsidiary in Uganda. The subsidiary in Uganda also helps to manage the repayments from the borrowers and with debt recovery. There are no other companies in Denmark with the same offer for Danish lenders. Sseguku has permission from the Danish FSA in accordance with the Payments Act, §51. How? Sseguku is established, registered and has the necessary permits in both Denmark and Uganda. In Uganda, Sseguku is represented by its Ugandan subsidiary. Sseguku has developed an integrated platform based on cloud technology that includes both the website that lenders use for lending and for information and the management solution used by Sseguku's subsidiary in Uganda to set up loans and manage repayments. The administration solution integrates with the mobile companies' mobile money platforms and with Sseguku's bank accounts. Sseguku has established a financial infrastructure that enables transfers between bank accounts in Denmark and in Uganda, and transfers in Uganda between the bank and the borrowers' mobile money. Sseguku created a network in Uganda in collaboration with an accountant, a lawyer and a number of actors in microfinance and aid organizations. Among other things, Sseguku, in collaboration with DanChurchAid (DCA), has investigated the possibilities of utilizing Sseguku's platform in connection with offering microloans to refugees in camps run by DCA. Why? The two founders: Kiyingi Yekosofaati and Hans Henrik Hammerum have a long-standing friendship that stretches back to the end of the last century. They have both, though in different ways, been deeply involved in microfinance and in developing countries in Africa. Kiyingi through employment in different microfinance institutions in Uganda and Hans Henrik through extensive investments in microloans through a previously similar platform, MyC4, which has existed in Denmark until 2014. Both have also been involved in development activities run by NGOs. Both are driven by a strong will to create financial inclusion and opportunities for low-income groups in Uganda and elsewhere it has value. When circumstances made it possible at the beginning of 2017, the interest gained concrete content and Sseguku was registered first in Denmark and then in Uganda. The most important activity since then has been to obtain permission from the Danish FSA to operate the website aimed at Danish lenders. The first loans were given in November 2018 with funds from the founders and their network and the organization in Uganda has provided loans since with the funds that have been available. The platform is not yet immediately ready to receive contributions from lenders, as some development activities are still pending. We anticipate that the launch and marketing of the platform may begin in early 2021.

Spher

Some might say Spher fits into the security market, but we recommend to not judge the book by its cover. If we must define a market for her to fit into, we will say that she is a category agnostic company and that she will be what others want and need her to be. To some, she might be a security company, to others an instrument for empowerment, and to some others a place where they belong to something greater. We have our hopes for her and we dream, that is for sure. We would say she will be a force to reckon. A force in which womxn and others can rely upon. A force that ultimately will create a better Womorrow (when women will be equal to men), by empowering and providing security to womxn so that they can thrive and prosper in society unprecedentedly.

Cirqle

Plastic waste and single use packaging is one of the great unsolved problems for our planet. In Europe the average person generates almost 500 kg of waste a year of which 35% comes from packaging. Most of this packaging is used for food and beverage products and is becoming an immense waste problem all over the planet. At Cirqle we want to tackle a part of this problem and believe that one of the grand solutions are a reuse model. We are creating a new paradigm in packaging and want to make it as convenient to reuse as it is to throw away. Our vision is to be the leading platform for reuse packaging in the circular economy. With our pioneering packaging solution, we enable a seamless shift from single use to reuse packaging. We are already breaking new ground with our meal-box service, but the sky is the limit when it comes to reuse packaging. With partners we cover the full supply chain from hardware production and software development to sanitation and logistics for a multitude of packaging solutions making sustainability the easy choice.

Wavy Wonders ApS

We're on a journey to reintroduce sugar kelp as a natural part of nordic food - first by way of a sustainable, nutritious, ready-to-eat snack product. By 2050, the world is required to produce at least 50% more food and do so while achieving 'Net Zero' carbon emission according to the UN. Seaweed has unique properties in that it can be grown on lines of rope in the ocean, with no requirement for artificial inputs (fertiliser, fresh water, light). The output is nutritious seaweed that is stock full of essential vitamins (A, D, E, B1, B2), Iron, Calcium, and Omega-3 fat - usually only found in fish. And there's more - seaweed also sequesters about 5x as much CO2 as land-based plants. In short, seaweed can be part of the solution for some of the world's largest issues. Our dream, is to create local demand, for locally produced seaweed, to support foods of the future and Danish companies.
