Swedbank launches sustainability accelerator: Future Hub

Jan 19, 2021
Sustainability, and climate change in particular, will be an increasingly important issue in business - albeit in the context of the forthcoming changes brought about by the EU's Green Deal. Timely launch of sustainability solutions will bring a number of benefits to businesses. Changing traditional approaches can be difficult and even inefficient if done on your own.

In cooperation with the startup ecosystem players in our region, Swedbank is launching sustainability co-creation accelerator "Future Hub". The accelerator's goal is to provide opportunities for market-leading companies to work on their business sustainability challenges by facilitating cooperation with GreenTech startups working in areas such as food, agriculture, mobility, energy, smart cities, supply chain logistics, CO2 tracking and other areas of corporate sustainability.

Until the end of January "Future Hub" accelerator is open for host companies to bring in their business sustainability challenges (the accelerator team can help identify and define those) for startups, explicitly matched for the particular challenge to address. During the accelerator program from March until May, startups will work on host challenges with extensive mentor support to lay grounds for future partnerships (working language - English). The attached material summarizes info about the accelerator, the benefits and the required level of host involvement.
