Since 2015, the University of Southern Denmark is organizing a conference on CO2 neutrality taking place in Sonderborg. With a focus on the cross-border region between Germany and Denmark, it is a joint initiative with the local government, industry and academic institutions.
Next to different keynote presentations and panel discussions, the conference also hosted a track on Green Entrepreneurship, which was organized and moderated by Silke Tegtmeier, SDU Department of Technology and Innovation. After a keynote presentation by Prof. Brem on success factors of science-based startups, the business case of ZEASY ApS was presented. This is a spin-off from a former student of SDU, Carl Frederik Brockhausen. Another business case was presented by Emil Busch, founder of WeUse. The final panel debate was about the potential of German Danish perspectives on cross-border collaboration on green entrepreneurship. Next to Prof. Brem, participants were Su-Hyun Berg (University of Flensburg, Department of Economics and its Didactics), Ken Holm Thomsen (SDU RIO), Dirk Ludewig, (Hochschule Flensburg, Jackstädt-Centre) and Thomas Neumann (Hochschule Flensburg, StartUP SH).
