Legendary Networking Night #25 with “the Steve Jobs of sustainability” Gunter Pauli
Startup Incubator’s Networking Night celebrates a roadmark – we are celebrating startupping for the 25th time in style. Our speaker for the night is Gunter Pauli who The Huffington Post has called “The Steve Jobs of Sustainability.” We will also hand out another golden hockey stick to another successful startup who graduates from Startup Incubator.
This time, the Networking Night will be held at Tehnopol Venus auditorium (Akadeemia tee 21/1) to bring together the whole community. As many of our startups are working with green tech solutions, we have asked Gunter Pauli to give a keynote on how he has devised and applied ecologically and socially sustainable solutions to transform the society and the industries one business model at a time.
He is challenging the green movement that he has been part of: to do better, to do more. His famous book “Blue Economy 3.0” is a collection of solutions that have the power to reinvent communities and cities. With roots in Belgium, he is a true world citizen.
“Time has come to shift towards a competitive business model that responds to the basic needs of all with what is locally available.”
