Outside the box


Today it was made official that Mehrdad Mahdjoubi and Orbital Systems raised 15 million dollar to take their showers out on the global market. Orbital was the first innovation company in WIN Water five years ago, and we are extremely impressed and proud of their journey.

Mehrdad told us at the last WIN Partner Meeting, that their vision is to save and reuse fresh water – not only in showers, but in all water-consuming parts of a home, hotel, and other domestic situations.

We hope to see other future products from Orbital Systems that save water and energy. And take the opportunity, once again, to congratulate Orbital and Mehrdad!

The team at Orbital are really good at thinking outside the box and are doing a lot of things differently from others. Soon we will enjoy Easter holiday, and I hope that you take the opportunity to think about what you can do different, and in what aspects you are inside a box you might want to get out of.
The Swedish comedian Johan Glans is brilliant in a very funny way when he challenges us to think how it would be if Easter was invented today. See the one minute monologue here (in Swedish) and please tell me if it didn’t make you smile.
 
We look forward to seeing you on the next Partner Meeting in Lund on May 11! Focus this time will be on strategic business mingling, matchmaking, and how to reach your vision.
 
We wish you a Happy Easter with your near and dear ones!
