Sustainable Energy,TECH EnvironmentSUMMIT & Climate DTU HIGH Startup & Entrepreneurship For the Global Goals

Wednesday October 30th DTU Library at 9-18


Welcome Last year no less than 87 new startups span out of the Startup Ecosystem at DTU – a new record! While 52 of these were founded by DTU students, the remaining 35 were founded by researchers from a broad selection of DTU Departments. This is a strong footprint and a tangible contribution to honor DTU’s mission: To develop and utilize the natural and technical sciences to benefit society. We strive to beat the record again this year, but off course, there is more to it than numbers. It is also a display of high quality companies solving the most relevant challenges of society and industry today, based on world leading technologies. This booklet promotes a selection of the most promising current startups originating from the DTU startup ecosystem, and we invite you to come by and meet them in person.

Wednesday October 30th DTU Library at 9-18 The event is created in a partnership between some of the central stakeholders supporting innovation and entrepreneurship at DTU. You can meet us amongst the showcasing startups, and learn how to engage with the startup ecosystem at DTU. Everything we do happens in collaboration with others, so we have invited a handful of excellent startups from Nordic Five Tech and EuroTech, two international alliances between world leading technical universities, that we are proud to be part of. We are looking forward to meeting you – companies, investors, researchers, students and many more! Kristoffer Buch Startup advisor at DTU Skylab and project manager on DTU Startup Fair

SUND FORLUFT has created a plug and play solution to measure CO2 levels in the shape of a cloud that hangs on the wall and lights red if the indoor climate is bad, and blue when it is good. A good indoor climate in schools and workplaces makes pupils and employees more productive and increases their concentration levels. sundforluft.dk  Kristoffer Jensen  kj@sundforluft.dk


DTU Link T2O/P4O recycle all plastic with or without organic and tires into Syntesoil - which 100% go into the chemical industries for new products. T2O/P4O pyrolysis recycling machines, own design, do automatic ”tailor made solutions” which are safe, scalable and highly cost-effective solution and run 24/7 on its own energy. “MADE in Denmark”
