Mats Ljunggren and Kathrin Theelen, we represent Evolar AB.

What important need can you solve with your product and who’s suffering 
from that problem?
Solar panel producers need to improve their products efficiency (ability to convert light to electricity) to increase their profitability and to be able to offer products to their customers which enables a lower price of electricity. Current commercially interesting solar cell technologies soon reach the limit for what is practically achievable in terms of power yield.

How does your solution work?
The “PV Power Booster” consists of a solar cell layer of perovskite that is coated on the front glass of a conventional solar panel and connected to the bottom pane solar cell layer. This increases the panel’s power yield by 25% to reach premium level. A solar cell utilizing two layers of solar cell material is called a tandem cell.

What kind of benefits can your customers expect when your solution is in place?
Firstly, premium products can be priced 100% above the mainstream products (price per panel) as a combined effect of a 50% higher price per watt and a higher number of watts for a given area.

Secondly it can be used as a good sales argument towards their customers, as it is a basis for lowering their electricity production cost. This is due to the fact that other components in a photovoltaic system does not scale directly with the panel´s power.

Who are you looking for to grow your team with to develop your idea further? What competencies do you need? Which possibilities as a team member do your offer?
We are looking for:

  • Thesis/part time work for product design visualization / animation
  • A service engineer (part time – full time). Responsible for equipment in R&D and prototype lines for thin film solar cell development. With experience of vacuum processes.
  • R&D engineers (part time – full time). Plan, execution and analysis of solar cell development experiments. Experience in thin film deposition processes. MSc or PhD.

Muhib

Limit screen time

What’s your name and which company do you represent?
My name is Muhib Lafta and I present for you the idea about an application in your phone to limit your screen time.

What important need can you solve with your product and who’s suffering 
from that problem?
Today, adults spend an average of 3-4 hours a day on their mobile phones and teenagers even more. We are using the mobile phone more and more, and as a result more and more people end up in a mobile addiction. As mobile phone usage increases, so does also mental illness, stress-related illnesses and sleep problems. The problem with mobile phones is primarily that they take so much time from other important and health promoting activities. Three important factors for us to feel good are physical activity, sleep and social interaction with people. The more time we waste on our screens, the less time is left for socializing, training and sleep.

How does your solution work?
The app registers your screen time during the day and translates it into points which in turn can be converted into discount codes and offers. The less time you spend on your mobile phone, the more points you can get and thus more offers.

What kind of benefits can your customers expect when your solution is in place?
The goal of my solution is to reduce mobile usage. By rewarding you in the form of offers and discount codes, we motivate you to reduce your mobile usage.

The goal is to help limit the distractions and meaningless time spent on devices, in order to live more in the present and spend time on the meaningful things in life.

Of course, there are fantastic benefits to digital technology – but they also come with a price in terms of health problems, sleep disorders, stress, decreased concentration and poorer learning ability. However, all of this can be prevented by using the device sparingly.

Through the app, we turn a societal problem into a business opportunity that everyone can benefit from, not least yourself.

Who are you looking for to grow your team with to develop your idea further? What competencies do you need? Which possibilities as a team member do your offer?
First of all, I am looking for a person who shares my view about the problem. More specifically, I am looking for an IT person who has knowledge of computer science and app development and who has the will and desire to help me to realize the idea.

What important need can you solve with your product and who’s suffering 
from that problem?
Nowadays companies usually get thousand of calls and questions every month from their customers that are looking for answers. Currently the way companies are addressing such problem is by relying upon big customer services teams to answer these questions. Questions that often are redundant: “How to close my bank account”, “How can I shut down my bank account”.

How does your solution work?
Our solution consists of an AI-driven question answering system. Such that, our system is fed with previous question-answer interactions between clients and employees and learn to generalize to answer more complex questions.

What kind of benefits can your customers expect when your solution is in place?
Our approach reduces both the financial and time cost as it automatizes the procedure of answering by collectively saving the “answers” of the company and re-use them to answer the same questions and generalizing to others. Thus, both the clients get faster response and the company reduces the human resources for such activity.

Who are you looking for to grow your team with to develop your idea further? What competencies do you need? Which possibilities as a team member do your offer?
