Breaking: Løverne bliver LIVE på VL Døgnet
En række ”Løver” fra DR´s populære serie ”Løvens Hule” er nu klar til VL Døgnet, hvor opgaven er at vurdere og investere i lovende forretningsideer, som alle tager udgangspunkt i Verdensmålene.
Det er essensen af VL´s fokus i 2019. At virksomhedsledere skal se Verdensmålene som en forretningsmulighed og et konkurrenceparameter, som de skal forfølge strategisk.
På VL Døgnet er ‘Løverne’ klar til eventuelt at investere med deres egne penge, og de er ikke på forhånd bekendt med, hvilke cases, som VL Døgnet 2019 præsenterer dem for. Det eneste de ved, er, at det er iværksættercases, der arbejder strategisk med Verdensmålene; ‘Born SDG’s’
Løverne LIVE! er stærke gengangere suppleret med en særlig international gæst.
Mød de fire ‘løver’:
Mia Wagner, Jan Dal Lehrmann, Peter Warnøe og Jared Heymann
