ACTER

The problem today is not that we are lacking ideas or solutions to solve global challenges, but that we are disconnected. Disconnected both on the collaborative level and the knowledge level - an ironic fact, considering that humanity has never been more connected. The problem, simply put, is that there currently is no structure and no clear overview, which has resulted in a fragmented ecosystem of people and organisations working in silos. This is hardly news to anyone, however, the question and ongoing challenge has been; how do we change this?  With Acter, we are on a mission to solve this problem. We are making it easier to identify and locate collaborators, engage with individuals, collaborate with organisations, and coordinate and share knowledge across initiatives working towards the same goals. With Acter we do not believe that technology is the single solution or our sole saviour. However, technology holds the potential of uniting efforts and organising ourselves in new and better ways. It allows us to zoom out and provide a clear understanding on the part that we play in the ecosystem, enabling us to affect systems at a global scale by coordinating collective action.

Gamucatex

Is a new Danish startup organization with a platform that develops a new form of educational interactive software and media. We call our projects gamutexs, games education experiences. They are based on a principle method of high entertainment that are designed to teach users new skills through interaction. The startup company is at the moment a project that is being developed in the Human Legal Hub at KU, at South Campus (KUA). It is part of two programs in Communication and IT and Information Sciences, that allows us to work on a start up. The University of Copenhagen will help and support this by providing consultants, office space, workshops and much more. The university does not hold any ownership of the company and they do not decide what we do, they only advise and manage the hub office area. Team members doing academical research in the project usually keep the data that they collected, meaning they can use it in academical assignments and such. In our projects we want to get academical inputs to elevate the learning potential for the users, this is done by inviting students and professors from relevant fields to contribute with relevant theories and knowledge. In return we will transform this combined with gamification to develop methods and other ways that subjects can either be taught for students or they can be “trained” in them. In our learning-lab we are also going to experiment with new ideas for knowledge and create an open space to practice studies in an attempt to apply it to gamucatex. We also seek to utilize the benefits that the traditional video game media offers when it comes to learning. Many players experience getting proficiency in certain areas after playing games. This does not just include ways to become better at playing the game but can for instance be positive side effects that lead to improvements in language. Such experiences have a high level of entertainment, but the learning process is not structured. In contrary many educational games focus on the knowledge part but don't utilize the affordances of the media and they are quite frankly boring. We believe the best results arises when both are combined The startup will solve a need for people who want to learn more and don't find conventional learning methods suitable and teachers who need new tools to engage students. Also the gaming industry new innovations in regards to educational games, while the publishing world needs new products to sell to people who play video games. Some artists also need a digital space where they can create and share interactive digital environments to express their creativity. Less fortunate people around the world will have access to a new service that will help their historical skills and other skills as mentioned, in return they can teach the history they studied. If they excel in language they might even earn a profit. This online job could make a huge impact for those where their access to jobs are limited!

Elektra Motor Company Ltd

The world is changing and that change is inevitable. We embrace the change with open arms. We see it as an opportunity to break old entrenched habits and corporate monopolies. We also see it as an opportunity to conduct business based on ethical values. We believe that even a small business can make a change. And to be taken seriously, we must be open and responsible. Our core values derive from this setting. They are sustainability and responsibility. We believe in a sustainable business model, even if it means less profit for us in the short term. We are not short-sighted. And only by engaging in responsible business, it is profitable also in the long run, especially in an industry that is on the verge of such a big change. Corporate responsibility means to us that we deliver what we promise. However, we are more pragmatic than optimistic, and we also understand that in a multipolar environment such as the industry we are in, there are many variables and equations to be solved. We are not alone in this. Our customer promise is that we do our best to live up to our values. The core of our business idea is to manufacture, import, export and sell new energy mopeds, motorcycles and cars. In addition, the company’s business idea includes manufacturing, importing, exporting and selling of selected ancillary products, as well as selling exchange instruments realised in sales.
