The Global Opportunity Explorer is a one-stop shop to readily available solutions to large scale challenges such as the current floods as well as to global challenges such of global poverty, gender inequality and hunger http://www.goexplorer.org
The platform is founded by the Scandinavian think tank and advisory Sustainia, the Norwegian company DNV GL and the UN Global Compact and it is currently building a community of partners including Storebrand, Sparebank, Innovation Norway and Grundfos. Nordic Impact joins the partnership and brings unique activities and perspectives onto the platform as an accelerator and impact investor with a mission to enable young entrepreneurs to scale sustainable business ideas.
Executive Chairman Nordic Impact, and co-founder of Katapult Future Fest. Anders H. Lier explains: “What we see is that youth are applying cutting-edge exponential technologies to create entirely new forms of products that helps build a sustainable future”.
The Global Opportunity Explorer will early next year showcase 700 sustainable solutions and 55 market opportunities that deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. It is an entirely new market and business landscape unfolding day-by-day that will make some industries redundant and create entirely new sectors that demand new skill and capabilities.
CEO and Founder of Sustainia Erik Rasmussen explain: “Nordic Impact with Katapult plays an important part in building this new economy by enabling new business ideas to accelerate and grow through impact investments. They are key in the eco-system of a new economy”.
The partnership will be announced during the UN General Assembly and Climate Week in New York running from Monday 18th to Friday the 22nd.
