How should SaaS companies foster sustainability? How can you as a startup take your first steps towards recognising sustainability targets? And if you are just getting started, where should you begin? Welcome to join the next Maria 01 After Work hosted together with Evli Growth Partners to dive deeper into the world of sustainability and ESGs.

Evli Growth Partners, together with Open Ocean and The Upright Project, are on a mission to support startups on their journey to taking the right actions towards sustainability. With a clear need for a more concrete understanding of which topics to consider when looking into sustainability questions regarding your startup and the ways in which investors evaluate sustainability, we’re bringing some of the leading industry experts together for an afternoon. The speakers and discussions on stage will approach the topic from the viewpoint of a SaaS startup.
