is @sweden 2018-04-16 to 2018-04-23

Hello friends! I am Åse Bye, a born and raised Swede with a Norwegian name. Every day, I work for cleaner air (and thus saving lives), to create the conditions for new businesses and jobs, for a safer and more sustainable world. I work close to decision makers and smart people, internationally and nationally. In addition, my colleagues at the office are the best! Great laughs!

I live in Gothenburg, have the archipelago as my playground. Love sailing, don’t care much about the weather really, as long it’s not too hot. As far as I’m concerned, wind is the greatest asset we have. Add water and sun, and there is the recipe for a better environment! For me and you!

Clearly I have some years of life experience, been in business for a while. Hence my interest in helping women and young people getting their share of space in descision making, on the entreprenurial scenes, in boardrooms. It’s about a better world economy, stronger businesses and a fair chance to end poverty and inequality.

Besides being the project director of the Blue Move for a Greener Economy, you can find me write material requested by authorities or ministries, moderating the Startup Grind or Women in Tech in Gothenburg, a hydrogen conference or a venture capital day. You might meet me as a coach to help a scientist take great findings to the market, or as the chairman of the board of Netwest, a company securing fiber rollout and fiber connection throughout the western part of Sweden.

I often travel, enjoying new sights, local food and drinks. Thrilled by meeting new people, building consortiums, doing great work together. Politics, fashion and art is the cherry on top. I’m overly curious, always diving into something I feel we can do something about, constantly wonder about Swedish lifestyle, why we do what we do. I have more questions than answers….

During my week as curator you will certainly get an insight about the hydrogen economy, electromobility, energy storage and a whole lot about why we all need to reduce fossil use and get rid of emissions. Sweden has an ambitious Climate Law and how scientists and businesspeople work to make it happen is also something I might share updates on.
