ENTREPRENEUR: Sascha NICK VENTURE: CO2-monitor AG WEBSITE: www.co2-monitor.ch BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT ABOUT US CO2-monitor makes private citizens aware of their personal climate and energy impact and motivates them to set a personal goal and take action. Participants are employees of partner organizations such as Swisscom, Credit Suisse, Piguet Galland, Axpo, Telekom Austria, SAM, Eawag, WWF, Canton of Zug, Umweltbundesamt Austria, in Switzerland, as well as Austria, Belgium, France and Hong Kong. CO2-monitor is auto-financed and cash-flow positive, reaching excellent employee engagement metrics and general customer satisfaction. However the company remains small, winning one client at a time - no acceleration levers have been successfully implemented yet. Currently, our team is six people, mostly part-time. Finding a way to accelerate development, including new collaboration business models, partnerships, company and sector focus etc. will be the focus of this internship. If successful, a permanent position will be created to implement and scale the new approach. This will be a highly interesting project and excellent learning opportunity, possibly (and hopefully) leading to a permanent position - and chance to make a significant sustainability impact! Raising awareness and motivating people to act sustainably is one of the biggest and most interesting challenges today - and CO2monitor has a proven track record at a small scale and potential to achieve much more.
