Biosfär and Sparly winners of the Södertörn Social Cup

The Södertörn Social Cup rewards early startups in social innovation with a focus on the UN’s global sustainability goals. This year, first and second place went to the students behind Biosfär and Sparly respectively.

– The win is a validation of our concept that gives us energy to continue to develop, says Jazgul Ismailova, founder of the fintech app Sparly that took home second place in the competition.
Sparly uses AI to offer an app that can contribute to more sustainable personal finances.

The first prize and a check for SEK 7000:- went to Biosfär.
– Winning the Södertörn Social Cup is recognition that gives me the power to develop this from an idea into a company, says Kayla Van Cleave, founder of Biosfär and ethnography student at Södertörn University.
Biosfär is a form of experience space that, with the help of new technology, can create a virtual reality where it is possible to create and experience joint activities.

“Soon we can meet again IRL”

Since the Covid outbreak, our work has been characterised by video meetings, especially in our various focus groups. Success has exceeded expectations, thanks to the fact that the approximately 70 people who are involved in the groups had time to get to know one other and the issues even before the pandemic. But we are really looking forward to being able to meet again IRL, and hopefully soon – it is so much more enjoyable!

XNK Therapeutics lays the groundwork for GMP facility in Flemingsberg

"Flemingsberg is the place in the world you want to be if you work with NK cells. There is a strong research facility here with a world-leading research group and proximity to a clinic that really knows NK cells. We recently started the construction of a new GMP facility with an associated research laboratory of 350 square meters for our NK cell therapy. The new facility is being built at Novum in Flemingsberg and, once the facility is completed in 2022, it will give us complete control over the entire development chain."
