ESAF is the alumni of NTNU School of Entrepreneurship. Everyone in ESAF has a really close connection, and we always share good and bad news. This week is no exception. We want to congratulate Sevendof that has raised over 3 million dollars for their drone projects, and Connect LNG for the award “Emerging Technology of the Year” – often described as the Oscar’s of the energy industry!
It’s been an amazing journey for these companies. From Sevendofs first prototype for a far-flying drone to their first step into the direction for a new infrastructure. And for Connect LNG that started their testing in small-scale sea-laboratories and ended up with a real scale jettyless system.
