RFTB participated in Stockholm Tech Fest 2016 to talk about solutions, partnership and sustainable development.



This year Stockholm Tech Fest added a special full day programme called Solutions, where 6000 entrepreneurs and investors joined with leading policymakers, foundations, NGOs, in an unprecedented event to showcase and inspire solutions to the UN Global Goals.

On Tuesday 6th September, our founder Niklas Zennström opened the Stockholm Tech Fest Solutions day with an inspiring speech. “Join us. Refuse to be part of a generation that understands the problems but fails to act. Real disruptive, transformative change is also coming from entrepreneurs and innovators.”

“I think of sustainability like an entrepreneur” says Niklas Zennström. “I believe that economic sustainability and environmental sustainability can go hand in hand. So, the stage is now set for entrepreneurs and technologies to shape the world like never before”, continues Niklas Zennström.

Our Director Barbara Jackson participated in the panel discussion ‘The Future of Water’ at Stockholm TechFest. “Technology in isolation will not solve the problem. The real solution is partnership – how we are going to work together as a team with all these solutions” says Barbara Jackson. “Let’s connect them to create effective partnerships”.
