June 7th, WiE Breakfast at Minc

We started June networking breakfast events with a group enriched by diversity, talent and ambition while leading discussion in entrepreneurship and sustainability for the Skåne region.

As a special segment, in the opening chat we enjoyed the participation of Karin Lintrup, Head of Sustainability from MINC who discussed topics on future of sustainability and what it means for MINC. As a key innovative institution of the region, MINC’s role in creating a sustainable future is admirable. Moreover, Karin’s inspirational voice was the start of a vibrant conversation about recognition of female potential in business environments. Likewise, we discussed the role of humility in the perception of our achievements and how we project ourselves towards others.

We enjoyed the company of impressive founders discussing their journey in sustainability such as ladies from Lufu Jacqueline and Hanna who has brought sustainable meat alternative to the Swedish food market based on the Lupin bean.

Cecilia helps companies build sustainable strategies through her company G-digit and Amanda who is catalyst for change making works in business development through her company Skördetid.Uppasana is currently conducting research on sustainable agricultural methods at Lund University and a specialist in systems thinking.

Andrea who is venture developer at Ideon innovations believes sustainable transitions start at personal level and will achieve global audiences through the impactful startups that Skåne region famously produces. The discussions ahead light on impressive personalities.
