      Project Name:

      Lohilo High Protein Ice Cream

      Start :
      2013-08-01
      End/Exit :
      2015-08-31
      Summary:

      We spent a couple of years being frustrated about the lack of good alternatives in healthy ice cream, so in the end we decided to create our own brand - Lohilo (LOw sugar, HIgh protein, LOw fat)

      We developed Lohilo High Protein Ice Cream together with Swedish ice cream producers Alvestaglass and created Sweden's first ice cream for people who live an active life style and/or care about what they eat.

      We released the product in June 2014 and then started distributing to shops in September -14 and reached national coverage with over 600 stores by Christmas 2014.

      LOHILO High Protein Ice cream has almost no added sugar, is very low on fat but is packed with high quality protein.

      We exited the company successfully to Alvestaglass in August 2015.

      Summary:

      Cleantech at its best. Refind Technologies provides systems for grading and sorting of used products. The systems, based on advanced artificial intelligence, enable producers, retailers and recyclers to squeeze out as much value as possible from used and returned electronics, batteries, lamps and other complex products that otherwise would have been dumped or treated inefficiently.

      Take the OBS 600 as an example. The OBS 600 is the world’s only automatic sorter for waste portable batteries. The system is a complete identification and sorting system for all cylindrical and 9V batteries with a  total capacity of more than 600 kg (1200 lbs) per hour.

      The system enables collectors and recyclers to efficiently sort mixed streams of batteries into separate material fractions with minimal labor and expertise required.

      Using vision technology the system does not only recognize the different chemistries. It also collects data that tells the relative share of the recycling stream for each brand and manufacturer.

      Summary:

      We started MMAB in 1999 to work with what we saw was going to become one of the big commodities back then - downloadable mobile content. From there we iterated the actual product, but stayed with mobile services all the way 'til 2013 when we closed down. The company saw the shift from CD to digitally downloaded music, we worked with all the major record labels and developed a large number of before-their-time services that today seem obvious, but back then were just strange and nerdy.

      Rewarded for innovation and creativity, we ran +100 campaigns in retail, offering  downloads and digital extensions to physical products.

      We created the brand Mobicodes that went from pre-paid mobile content cards (2001) to a full-fledged ticketing solution (one customer being The Stockholm Film Festival). The ticketing solution spun out into the services www.swetic.com and www.sweroom.com.

      The last big project we ran in MMAB was a mobile banking/remittance solution using NFC called Mobilbanken. It included a digital stamp card functionality, parent/child accounts, cross-border remittance and more.
