Podcasts stimulate discussion on impact technology and investing

On December 3, 2018 we are launching a 9 episode podcast series about impact technology and impact investing at Slush, one of the worlds biggest start up events. The initiative builds on the initiatives introduced in recent years with the launch of the portals The Hub and +impact. 

The world right now is standing on the threshold of a technological revolution advancing with a speed difficult for many to grasp - a situation filled with both opportunities and challenges for start-ups that wants to pursue sustainable development goals.

Our new podcast series developed with Katapult Future Fest - a non-profit movement founded to drive positive societal change through technology and impact investing - aim to address this development and stimulate the discussion on how technology can be used to tackle some of the big issues facing the world today.  
The podcast series fit into our general strategy of helping social entrepreneurs to scale. When start-up companies are able to scale, the wider society benefit from it, and we believe doing good, is also good business.
