US Ambassador Smitten with Pamoja
The Aalto Venture Garage hosted a few high level visitors: the US Ambassador Bruce Oreck and the Embassy’s senior commercial officer Nicholas Kuchova. In their early days they had worked in clean technology, working in Panama with a company producing bio digesters! As we already have two prototypes up and going here at the Garage, one with cow dung and one with food waste, we had the opportunity to showcase these – and to guests who already knew a thing or two about the work we do!
They were impressed and gave us good feedback and ideas about our next steps, including financing.
The work continues… One and a half weeks to go with the Summer of Startups program.
