Welcome Slingshot Cohort #5

Scribble 2

We are halfway through the fifth cohort and the Slingshot team is currently helping InfoTiles, NUAer and Ruden Water to realize their potential and contribute to a sustainable future!

The theme is WATER and the companies focus on reducing maritime emissions, fighting water scarcity and preventing water leakages so that we can utilize more of the water that we have.

Slingshot's mission is to create new and sustainable jobs in our region and we believe these three companies can contribute in accelerating the green shift and grow sustainable industries and value chains. Although the companies are quite different in terms of the products and services they offer - we have seen a lot of synergies and knowledge spillovers between the companies.
