TedxTALKS, Kickoff EHV edition
Through Kickoff EHV Talks, we aim at triggering the entrepreneurial mindset of students and give them courage to explore it. The speaker will provide students with practical information about the importance of incorporating environmental sustainability in their (future) business. The focus of the speaker will be on discussing the importance of a long-term plan with measurable and ambitious goals, as well as measuring the project results and impact.
During the Sustainable Entrepreneurship edition of Kickoff Talks, entrepreneurs will talk about how they create environmental value with their businesses. We believe that when starting a company nowadays, environmental sustainability cannot be left out. David Attenborough made his statement in A life on our planet movie.
Currently there are many unsustainable businesses which have a negative influence on the planet. We would love to stimulate the transition towards more environmental sustainable businesses. It’s desirable to incorporate environmental sustainability in any product or service in order to raise awareness, have a positive influence on the planet and satisfy customers (which demand this more and more).

Marco, the COO of Carbyon, will talk about the process of closing the CO2 cycle and the advantages of renewable hydrocarbons.
Marco Arts is currently the COO of Carbyon, working towards closing the CO2 cycle. He holds a Bachelor’s at LSE in Sociology and obtained his Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering at TU/e, but did not consider himself a typical researcher. His first job at Ericsson was a perfect fit for him, as he wanted to be involved with the technology environment, though not as a researcher, but rather as a project manager, working with people. During his 12 years at Ericsson he worked on major world-wide projects and assignments, including introduction of the 3G network to the Netherlands. He then continued working as a PM on a freelance basis in various industries, until he finally joined a hackathon at the HighTechXL and became a crucial part of Carbyon.
