Solar Village

Solar Village is a Norwegian company on a mission to improve African smallholder farmers' yields and standard of living. Every year weeds, pest and crop diseases hugely decrease yields of African smallholder farmers, undermining their livelihoods and limiting their potential. When pesticides are sprayed, this is often done by using inefficient knapsack sprayers, which use more water and chemicals than needed and expose farmers to unnecessary risks. Water needed for the sprayers is often collected by women and girls far away from the fields. ​Pesticides are expensive and should be used effectively and in moderation to avoid waste and pollution. Many cheap sprayers are hand-powered but are inefficient and waste both water and chemicals. Other, more efficient sprayers, are powered by disposable batteries, but these are expensive and often get dumped on the ground. Our main product is the Battery Stick™. In the field, the Battery Stick™ powers two attractive herbicide, insecticide, and fungicide sprayers of Micron, a leading manufacturer of specialist sprayers and weed control equipment for a wide range of applications. These sprayers (Handy and Ulva+) have been developed specifically for the African smallholder user and are safe and highly labour and water saving. At home, the Battery Stick™ is a power source for a range of desirable household appliances (e.g. lamps, TV and fan), popular among smallholder farmers living off-grid. Our standard Battery Stick™ kit consists of the Battery Stick™ with a built-in torch, a 10W solar panel, an LED lamp and 6 USB phone charge connectors.

Cyklus Bolig

Cyklus is a Danish word that means “cycle.” The inspiration is the miracle of the natural systems that we depend on, because they operate in cycles. This contrasts with a linear model - still the standard mindset when people make things - and where it is assumed that we can just harvest materials or energy (or people) for a purpose, and disregard the “waste” and other destructive consequences as an inevitable part to the process. Cyklus is part of to the paradigm shift from a linear model to a circular one: incorporating the “circular economy,” for example. We must consider the consequences choices that are made, and integrate our actions into a sustainable, circular model. In the building sector, this means eliminating CO2 emissions, adopting zero waste models, creating healthy environments, and more.

Picterus

Picterus is a growing start-up bringing biophysics and machine learning based solutions to healthcare. The company is based in Trondheim, Norway, and was founded in 2015 with the mission to provide accurate jaundice diagnosis at low-cost all over the world.

A primary reason for this high morbidity and mortality is the inability to measure bilirubin levels in many locations due to lack of a readily available and effective device. Picterus AS has developed its first app, Picterus, as a novel approach for remote jaundice diagnostic and monitoring which has already completed a clinical trial in Trondheim University Hospital showing the effectiveness of the novel solution in Caucasian newborns. Our team has the perfect mix of technological, business and financial background who have a combined understanding and knowledge of the mobile health world in the following area: Biomedical optics and photonics, physics, software and app development, paediatrics, and sales.
