In order to produce truly radical ideas, we need to be able to challenge our preconceived notions and established ways of thinking. We believe this can be achieved through collaboration and cross-sectoral engagement.
At DGF, we want to be facilitators of innovation-producing collaborations. The cases at our innovation program allows the participants to truly challenge themselves and bring out their problem solving and co-creation skills. By taking advantage of a network of expert mentors from DGF, YSI and leading companies, they will be able to produce truly innovative and implementable solutions, which will improve value creation for businesses as well as positively impact society.
Empowering the next generation of innovators for sustainable development
Our cases are designed to challenge the participants to solve business problems while at the same time yielding results towards one or more of the SDGs. Read about the ongoing cases below and stay tuned to follow them from initiation to implementation.

SpareBank 1 Østlandet
In this innovation program, SB1Ø want to explore how the bank can build new and relevant value propositions for green savings connected to a “sustainability lifestyle platform”. SB1Ø are already working on ways to help consumers understand how their lifestyle and consumption are affecting the environment and carbon emissions. By increasing this kind of sustainability knowledge, consumers will be better equipped to take real personal actions that have a positive impact. Greater awareness and the consequences from everyday consumption is one small step towards providing our customers with a personalized tool/assistant for a more sustainable lifestyle.
