2 of the 33 best tech entrepreneurs in Sweden

Published by on april 19, 2013

This week, together with my friend (and entrepreneur) Per Nilsson, I went to the 33 List – an entrepreneur competition with the purpose to spot new tech talent. An excellent evening arranged by magazines Ny Teknik and Affärsvärlden. There was a lot of talent, energy and knowledge both on and off stage.

Here are my personal favorites among the top 33 tech entrepreneurs in Sweden – the ones with that WOW magic:

1. Sol Voltaics.
2. Anolytech.

It will be very interesting to follow their journey going forward.

Check out Sol Voltaics powerful video.

The most fun innovation was ScoreCleaner (a must for all music lovers).

Monsanto got 1 million people to sign up against them in just 36 hours

Published by on april 15, 2013

Bad business spread like fire online, Monsanto vs. Mother Earth:

Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to gain exclusive control over the seeds of life – the source of our food. They’re trying to patent away varieties of our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them for seed and risk being sued if  they don’t.

In just 36 hours more I think they will reach over 2 million people to sign up.
Thanks to Carin B-A for sending this.
