🌍 February focus on Sustaintech 💚

Another month has passed, quicker than anyone had time to blink. Whilst the world is holding a breath of peace, our talented companies have been busy expanding and growing their solutions to the world. We just finished our Sustaintech Test Drive where 13 early-stage startups pioneering Sustaintech innovations and solutions have gone through a series of workshops with our coaches. You can read more about it here.

The winner is SaniSOLE which is changing the scene with sustainable sanitary products made from agro-food industry waste. Wow! Cellfion and Cresponix were also selected by the jury sharing second place. 

February was filled with preparations and invitations for exciting events happening through spring. Innovations to change the textile and material industry, more matchmaking Sustaintech events bringing together corporates and public organizations, and more. The focus on Sustaintech makes us excited and hopeful for a greener future and a better world. What starts with an idea or an event can expand into further greatness that helps improve the lives of thousands of people and our planet. 

Happy reading. 

All the best,
The Sting team
