Building a community to disrupt the energy sector

We are here today to start a dialogue. Discussing and sharing insights, learning from each other. Together we can find new ideas and build a community to disrupt the energy sector.

Wise words by Terhi Vapola, VP of Helen Ventures during the Helen Ventures launch event at Slush 2019. Together with Demos Helsinki, the leading Nordic think tank, we led a series of roundtable talks in the Slush Secret Garden - what it takes to make a cleaner energy future reality.

Collaborating to accelerate energy innovations was not only the theme of the event; it is also the core of Helen Ventures. Helen's goal is to be 100% carbon neutral by 2035.  Helen Ventures will join forces with innovative growth companies and invest up to 50 million euros in world-changing technologies in the next five years.

We believe that corporations joining forces with start-ups plays a key role in accelerating energy innovations. For Helen Ventures, collaboration is not only financing new energy solutions, but also building teams, offering support and connecting ideas to open doors to new possibilities.

The launch event was a promising first step to start the dialogue. A diverse group of participants joining us in the discussions, ranging from startups to investors and big corporations. The dialogue will continue, as Helen Ventures continues to quest for a cleaner tomorrow together with innovative start-ups.

On our next Helen Ventures blog we will be sharing insights from the launch event keynotes and the discussion - stay tuned!
