A Quick Flashback to Technoport 2015

One of the most popular talks at Technoport 2015 was from Pascal Finette, who flew all the way from California to join us in Trondheim. He even stayed the following day to run a workshop. Right now, he heads up the SU Startup Lab, which has a mission to “educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges" - a perfect fit with our aims here at Technoport.

Here's an opportunity from Pascal that may be perfect for you and your startup.
