Hutch Sri Lanka: going to the people where they are

CK Hutchison is providing funding to support Hutch Sri Lanka’s giveaway of 200 e-bikes to distributors so that they can help to keep people connected despite the ongoing challenges affecting customer mobility. Of the local subscribers, 90% are using prepaid cards. But with fuel shortages afflicting the nation, people can’t get to commercial outlets that are distributors of prepaid cards and top-ups. The e-bikes will enable distributors to sustain the critical distribution network. They can travel the land, leaving connected people in their wake. Roll on, Hutch Sri Lanka, roll on.

A.S. Watson: supporting youth employment and training en masse

Bring on the Beast!

New Zealand’s Beast is eating up timber – and that’s the solution, not the problem! Unwanted waste wood makes up 12% of all waste filling up the Kiwi nation’s landfill sites. EnviroNZ’s new heavy machinery, known as “the Beast” chews up waste wood and converts it into wood pellets. Those pellets are then sold to a cement factory which uses them as biofuel. This keeps construction and demolition timber out of landfill sites and reduces the use of fossil fuels – a double win, courtesy of the Beast!

Wind Tre is in the House (of Emerging Technology)!

Twelve innovative new companies are going to be welcomed to the House of Emerging Technology of Rome to get a boost from Wind Tre and partners. The House of Emerging Technology will select tech start-ups using AI, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) or 5G to address two areas of strategic importance for the city of Rome: mobility and tourism. This partnership is co-financed by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, select Roman universities and corporate partners including Wind Tre. The House will provide aspiring innovators and citizens with a home to develop and share ideas, test new technologies and transfer acquired knowledge.
