Ramtin Massoumzadeh - Labtrino CEO and Co-founder
Season 1, Ep. 3
In this episode, we dig deep into questions around hardware prototyping, building a team, leadership, and navigating co-founder relationships as well as fundraising for the first time. On today’s podcast episode, Alexa Edström is joined by Johann Gross who is filling in for Emma Lindholm during her trip. Johann is a former student founder still active in the startup scene and he currently works full-time as Partner Manager at the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship. A big shoutout to Johann, we are so grateful and happy to have him on the podcast to help interview our guest speakers. This episode's special guest is Ramtin Massoumzadeh, the CEO and co-founder of Labtrino. Ramtin originally grew up in Stockholm and studied Vehicle Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology before starting his venture, Labtrino. Their vision is to pave the way for a more sustainable planet, for us and for future generations. In doing so, they hope that it will become natural for everyone to consider their own imprint on the planet and collectively help to minimize it. They focus on developing smart solutions in the form of embedded mechatronic systems, utilizing cloud services that communicate between web interfaces and smartphones to inform users about their water consumption. Ignorance may be bliss, but too often it goes unnoticed at the cost of others. Therefore, Labtrino aims to close the gap between our collective behaviour in how we consume nature’s resources and our understanding of its implications and consequences. There is a saying: “What you don’t know won’t hurt you”. But once we know, we intrinsically strive to ease the pain. So let us be known, so that we can together make this world a better place for the next generation.For more information check out www.labtrino.comDo you have a recommendation for a student founder we should interview?

Alexander Jacobsen - Waves CEO and Founder
Season 1, Ep. 2
In this episode, Alexander Jacobsen from Waves tells us about his student journey that has lead to him becoming an entrepreneur. Starting as a first year industrial engineering and management student, Alex got involved early with entrepreneurship initiatives at his university. He has had many ideas along the way, two of which he has developed into ventures. His first venture taught him a lot about keeping the relationships in your life nurtured even as you become consumed by your work. His second venture is teaching him even more lessons about building a team, creating a prototype, and managing his role as CEO. Waves helps you invest in your values by helping you invest in mutual funds with stakes in companies solving some of the biggest challenges of our time. In fact, investing in the right mutual funds is 27 times more impactful than other lifestyle changes you make. WAVES allows you to invest in your values and track your impact. By utilizing existing infrastructure and financial systems to overcome the world’s most pressing issues, their team believes that anyone can change the world, and that it starts with something as simple as an investment.
