SoPact Graduates – OIKOS Hub

What problem are you trying to solve?

We are trying to sort out the tangle of actors, i.e government, banks, housing companies, employers, etc. that “attack” vulnerable individuals with their respective agendas.

 

How are you going to solve this?

We use human logistics, with which we mean that we solve a logistical problem with people and create effective flows through the jungle of actors in order to navigate people to a life in dignity. Through the platform OIKOS Hub, and with help from the digital processing tool Logi-Key, we lead the way to vindication for vulnerable people.

What problem are you trying to solve?

Swedish students used to be regarded as some of the best in the world, but in the last decade  we’ve  seen a drastic decline in how well they perform. Perhaps most noted is the decline in the PISA rankings, especially in math. It points at a deeply rooted problem which will have long-term effects on the Swedish society and Sweden’s industrial competitiveness in the global world of today. Me myself have dealt with global recruiting and previously experienced Swedish candidates to have a competence advantage against many others, but today it feels more like something is missing. This is a negative trend that we need to do something about.

Presenting the startups – GEPANT

Starting at the base of every societal startup. What problem are you trying to solve?

As we know, Sweden is one of the leading countries in recycling of PET bottles and aluminium cans for refund. Yet, the past years the recycling rate have slowly decreased among the Swedes. Last year more than 15% of all bottles and cans that were produced were never recycled – meaning 250 millions of bottles and cans. One of the possible hindrance in the recycling system are companies who have a bad waste disposal system installed at the offices and/or kitchen area. Many times there are not enough space for collection or it is observed to take too much time to handle waste sorting. Which results that all waste, including bottles and cans, ends into one bin.

Starting at the base of every societal startup. What problem are you trying to solve?

At Pitupi, we’re trying to establish greater transparency in the fashion industry. We’ve gone from a production cycle that not long ago placed a focus on four seasons a year to one that now embraces up to 22. Garment manufacturers are the ones assuming the greatest amount of responsibility in this new “fast fashion” cycle, at the expense of their health, safety, and livelihood. Read more
