LifeBoard ApS

At LifeBoard ApS we are designing the new generation of public rescue equipment, a rescue board, that makes a difference. The LifeBoard® ensures that beachgoers as civil rescuers have the necessary tool at hand to safely stabilize an accidents out in the water. We want to increase water safety on beaches by analyzing and customize safety solution with theLifeBoard®. With the LifeBoard® surfboardlooking design it is easier for civil beachgoers to use compared to the lifebuoy ring. The ring is not designed to be used for swimming rescues, but to be thrown from harbors, piers and boats. The lifebuoy ring is considered inefficient on flat beaches, where it is rarely used successfully. The aim with the LifeBoard® is to avoid civil rescuers from becoming a victim in the at- tempt of rescueing another and to decrease swimming-related fatal drownings by 50%. With the LifeBoard® civil rescuers can reach a distressed faster and safer. Safety to avoid a fatal drowning of the civil rescues and/or victims. Fast to save the victim before it is too late, since a drowning can happen in less than 60 sec and reducing the risk of permanent injuries and hospitalisation of near-drowning victims. If you are interested in water safety or becoming a part of our journey, don’t hesitate to contact us 😊🤙

Reduced

Reduced is an innovative food production company. We specialize in creating high-quality food products made from excess produce. Our mission is to reduce food waste by using vegetables, protein and other nutritional sources leftover from the conventional food industry. Right now, we put all our time and effort into creating sustainable stock. We aim to develop a broad portfolio of products that will replace conventional choices. Always with a focus on taste and sustainability. In 6 months we have developed and launch four products based on excess produce, without seeking any financing. The products are sold in 55 supermarkets (Irma, SuperBrugsen, Meyers Deli etc), at Nemlig.com and in food service. The products are developed with one thing in mind: "How can we make taste from waste?". These are the four products: 1) Organic Chicken Stock: Made from egglaying chickens in excess from egg production. The chickens usually are used for biogas. We are changing this. 2) Shellfish Stock: Made from some of the 12 billion shore crabs in the Danish seas. Shore crabs are a massive problem for fishermen and they harm marine ecosystems. 3) Organic Vegetable Stock: Made from nordic seaweed and fragments of dried mushrooms. Seaweed is considered as one of the most overseen and essential resources of future food. 4) Organic Veal Stock: Made from bull calf bones in excess from milk production. There is little demand for bull calf bones. We strive to change the value chain. We now have a proven product-market fit and are looking into scaling our operation.

GRASSROOTS

GRASSROOTS aims to revolutionize donations to charity through a digital platform, with the ultimate goal of creating a global standard for donations. The problem that we are trying to solve is that the feedback is very limited when donating to large charitable organizations today - most often a yearly report of what the entire organizations has been doing for that entire year. With single donations there is often no feedback at all. This means that it's not possible to see where your individual donation went, or if it made any difference. The solutions is a tailor made tool for large charitable organizations that improves communication, transparency, customer engagement and enables more efficient work, where donors will be able to see exactly where their donation went. GRASSROOTS is a non-profit organization.

Beoi AS

Reducing construction waste and digitalising renovation and demolition processes. Beoi implements the best of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) for Deconstruction (VDD) - maximising analysis of existing building stock for material/component recovery. Using speedy 3D modelling to establish a communication and analysis basis for project teams, we are looking to transform the methodology of construction for the circular use of its materials! The overall company goal is to implement sustainable, circular practices in construction and replace the costly, ineffecient methods still currently in widespread use. Using cutting-edge methods in BIM, Lean, and Integrated Project Delivery, we are building out a better end-of-life for buildings with extensive and clear-cut benefits for developers, contractors, and public bodies. We have started out in the midst of the 2020 chaos, but have locked down a terrific collaboration with a developer, architect, and technology firm in the building industry with the express goals of creating a circular construction cluster in the Rogaland region. The methods involved have a proven track record, but have yet to be shown as the golden-gun in achieving circular goals - with this collaboration and the huge potential for scaling, we hope to take the industry by storm!

Aquaid

Aquaid delivers unique water bags. In emergency situations, people transport water over longer distances either from the well to their home or from a water tanker to their tent. For this water transport, many different devices are used. Traditionally jerry cans, plastic containers, collapsible containers and buckets with lit and a faucet. All these devices are voluminous and the type of plastic is not durable. Often they break and are affected by weathering. Buckets and jerry cans are difficult to transport (takes space). In flooded areas, buckets and jerry cans cannot be dropped by the air.

Mendonca Biomed

Mendonca Biomed is an early stage life science startup with the aim to develop and validate novel biomarker for the early detection of viral infections in blood with an affordable yet simple detection method that can be universally applied. The company was originally founded by myself Kevin Mendonca in India based on his 15 years of accumulative research knowledge. Preliminary data on the utility of viral miRNA biomarkers for the screening of blood for transfusion transmitted viral infections, which are potentially superior to the currently available markers, and a simplified assay that is cost effective and can be universally adapted, were developed in India. However, due to an innate lack of infrastructure and funding opportunities in India, I applied for the startup Denmark program to move the company to the medicon valley. I recently moved to Demark, registered a privately owned company and currently in pursue of funding to validate the viral miRNA biomarkers for the early detection of HIV, HBV and HCV in donated blood. Around the world, more than 92 million blood donations are collected every year. Screening of donated blood and derived products, for HIV, HBV and HCV is mandatory worldwide. Screening is a key safety measure in protecting recipients from transfusion transmitted infections, especially in developing nations in Africa and Asia, where the donated blood is not processed because of high costs and lack of infrastructure. Moreover, in emergency situation like natural calamities, disasters and sudden outbreaks, the currently available methods are inadequate for on-site screening. Serological testing (antigen and antibody detection assays) have historically been the foundation of blood screening but with huge drawbacks of long window periods. Newer strategies like the PCR based amplification viral genomic DNA/RNA in blood have helped shorten the window period but have not eliminated it. PCR assays have also been known to fail in low viremia and/or suboptimal amplification efficiency. They are far more expensive than the serological assay, requires expertise, specialized equipment and a molecular biology setup, which is not available in the resource poor settings of the developing countries. Our solution is to develop and validate novel viral miRNA biomarkers that have the potential to further reduce the window period and use the unique characteristics of these biomarkers to develop a simple, multiplex (3 in 1), inexpensive probe hybridization assay that can be universally utilized in all settings and conditions. Viral miRNA molecules are easy to validate as biomarkers since the presence of vmiRNA’s is a definite indicator of infected cells. Benefit: Multiplex 3 in 1 test. Method as simple to perform as the serological assay with the benefits of a molecular assay. Can be adapted in any setting, even in the field and low resource conditions in developing nations. Potentially, lower window period of detection compared to any biomarkers that are available in the market currently. Value: High throughput, lower turnover time with lower chances of human error. Advantages of a molecular assay with the simplicity and affordability of a serological assay. Does not require specialized setup, infrastructure and highly trained technicians. Potentially, could detect the infections faster than any other tests in the market, lowering the risk of transfusion transmission. Once this platform has been validated, the product line can be expanded to cover all commercially viable viral infections. A HPV assay based on this platform, for example, could be a potential replacement for the invasive PAP test, and can be performed during a routine blood test. The platform can be further adapted to screen for novel viral infections like SARS, MERS, ZIKA etc. It can be also be developed to screen and control other sporadic outbreaks the like Dengue, Chikungunya etc.

RE-ZIP

RE-ZIP is a circular packaging concept offering both circular packaging to more or less all players in the ecommerce industry. By circulating rather than using single-use packaging (even recycled) we save more than 80% CO2 by just 10 circulations. RE-ZIP delivers the packaging to the ecommerce's which offer the sustainable packing solution to the end-user at the the check-out for a minor fee (paid back via voucher or rebate code later). Upon receipt of the goods the end-user fold the RE-ZIP packaging to a returns format and deliver it at a mail box or a parcel store and the packaging is returned to RE-ZIP warehouse for cleaning and re-circulation to our customers. The RE-ZIP packaging can be circulated more than 20 times. RE-ZIP has developed a state of the art backend system supporting the above process and are currently end-user testing both an end-user app as well as an drop-point app (shops) to support roll-out of the worlds first circular packaging infrastructure to be introduced in 2021.

Boardmemore

Boardmemore is developing a marketplace for sports equipment rental where people can rent equipment from each other. There are far too many unused things in our wardrobes, cellars, and garages. According to Greenpeace statistics, we buy an average of 60 items of clothing a year, 40 to 80 percent of which gather unused dust in the wardrobe. In addition, there is all the sports equipment that is only in use a few days a year. From skis, to water sports equipment, to tents and folding boats. If you were to rent these products instead of buying them, it would be cheaper for the consumer and more sustainable for the environment. And if you rent from your peers, it's even easier and more accessible! What sparked the idea? On a sunny day in Copenhagen we wanted to take a paddle board and have a tour in canals that slightly remind Venice. As we already had one board, we were missing another but we couldn't find where to rent it. And then our idea was born. We asked ourselves how might we create P2P marketplace for sports equipment rental and how to make different sports activities more accessible to everyone?

My Personal Health Bank

For a quick intro pls see: https://drive.google.com/file/d/168TTZsNef43Awmxz3iALMhx2saVk5ihe/view?usp=sharing The problem & the idea Data may be the driver for change, improvement and understanding, in many sectors, amongst these also healthcare. Patient data is an important creator of knowledge both on an individual level but also on a group, regional or country level. On an individual level, patient data may support and build the clinical decisions, it may provide more efficient treatment, both in regard to time and economy and secure that knowledge about the individual is transferred fast and unbiased to the healthcare staff. For the patient, sharing of his/her data will secure a better understanding of the needs and support better diagnosis and treatment. Patient data are collected and noticed in some form in most countries, either on paper or electronically. Many countries have some sort of an electronic patient journal, either on a country level, regionally or locally. However, many countries also still use pen & paper. This challenges the storage and continuity of data collection and transfer. Patient data records in electronic form reduces the risk of losing valuable data but also allows the data to be shared if needed. The acknowledgement of the importance on several levels of having patient data and the absence of a central, regional or local electronic patient data recording system in Sub-saharan African countries (the target region) initiated the idea of looking at how it would be possible to collect and make patient data readily available for treatment, benefitting both patient and caregiver, and in a bigger perspective, for research and strategic healthcare initiative planning. During small initial market and possibility investigations the idea of creating a patient owned electronic healthdata journal app arose. Mobiletechnology is both greatly advantaged and outspread in the target region and the number of mobile consumers are increasing every year. It was and is anticipated, that the possibility of having a central system is, due to structural and financial reasons, not a possibility but to empower the patient with the ownership of own data through an app seemed a possibility. It is important to underline that data must be generated from the healthcare provider and then fed into the patientjournal at the site of the consultation. The idea is to have the most relevant data collected and stored in the app, ie. medication, allergies, blood type, diagnosis and immunizations. The data that will go into the app is transferred from a healthcare provider at the site of the healthcare visit, eg a clinique, hospital, other. That means that the healthcare provider must have access to a tablet or smartphone containing the healthcare provider app which connects to the patients healthcare data app at the visit. Also any healthcare provider with the app will followingly get access to the data from the patient by connecting (and by being given access by the patient) to get patients healthdata app. So, in summary the basic idea is to provide all citizens with a tool that will help them keep track of their most important healthcare related data including completed and planned treatments, diagnosis, tests, allergies etc. The idea is further that the data is owned by the citizens/patients, and not by the non-existing national or any hospital specific system. Upon each contact with the healthcare personnel the patient's information is updated by the healthcare personnel (e.g. symptoms, diagnosis, tests, treatment, next visit etc.) The basic idea/assumption is that no national healthcare system will be developed in near or short-term future, and that a personally owned "electronic patient journal" can have a significant positive impact on the quality of treatments because of a more complete picture of the patient is available at the time, when a diagnosis and treatment is to be decided.

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.
