Core activity: identifying business ideas (innovation) + matching ideas and teams
!! Matching teams and ideas is the unique part !!
Adressing global issues, identifying the problems, sparking great business ideas, and creating new sustainable companies!
ProblemSolvers is a program for unemployed engineers from the oil and gas industry. Due to the crashing oil prize, Norway now face thousands of unemplyed engineers with little hope for new jobs the next couple of years.
The aim is for the engineers to identify business ideas that supports the green/sustainable economy, and to start a company based on these ideas. And by doing this, they will be a part of the solution for the global issues we face today.
So for industry, this is both education, environmental, technology, and non-profit work. And most important, innovation!
The target audience is:
- unemplyed engineers that we would like to take part in the program
- potential partners/sponsors (big companies looking towards green/sustainability projects)
