About this event

Learning is a basic human right and all students should have access to modern and engaging learning experiences of the highest quality.

Welcome to our fireside chat with Hugo Wernhoff, CEO & Co-Founder of Kognity, a Swedish impact-tech startup with the ambition of radically improving learning for the world’s 1.5 billion school students. Kognity recently raised 165 million SEK for product development and market expansion.

In this fireside chat we focus on:

⭐ What is an impact-led startup?

⭐ How do you balance the purpose and profit at strategic and operational level?

⭐ Does having a big vision help? Or does it scare away people as being impossible?

⭐ What problem is Kognity solving?

⭐ Would you call yourself an ed-tech startup? Where is ed-tech headed?

⭐ What's the hardest part about running a tech-startup?

⭐ Where do you think most early stage entrepreneurs go wrong?

⭐ How do you balance life and work?

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, Strategic Advisor at the Founder Institute, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
