In April 2017, we sadly learnt of the passing of our advisor Marianne Treschow. We were so excited that Marianne accepted the role of Advisor to the map project at the beginning of the autumn 2016. We are happy that we had the chance to meet a few times, pitch our project, discuss our challenges, and how to develop collaboration for the implementation of map project. Her support helped us on the right course early on. Marianne’s energy and enthusiasm has inspired us! She will be greatly missed at the map project. Our thoughts are with her family and close friends.
map project is supported by KTH Innovation through the pre-incubator. This provides us with access to office space at KTH main campus, business development support, workshops targeting all aspects of developing a start-ups, and a vast network. The team is part of batch 4.

Emma Pantagaki is a university student of psychology. She also has a passion for design, video making and photoshop and has joined map project as a volunteer during June and July 2017. Emma is developing map project video material about the many use cases for map project addresses.
Katarina Gillblad offered map project an office as she had a spare room just when we were starting out without a space to work together. The team was working there between January and March 2017. Modern tools are a great help in making distant work possible, but it is nothing like being able to work face-to-face, support each other and solve challenges together as they arise.
During the 2.5 months that map project were at Katarina’s office, map project team developed effective ways of working together, finalised a first prototype, carried out a first field test in Senegal, got our first website up and running, communication and marketing material developed. Karoline Beronius, team leader emphasises “I believe having our own small office was instrumental in getting us off the ground so fast and building the team, as well as effective ways of working. We are forever grateful to Katarina!”
We were curious about what gave Katarina the idea to support us, this is what she says: “In my search for meaningful business ideas I ran into Karoline, team leader of map project. She wanted to solve an actual problem that affects people’s opportunities in life! The focus and collaboration I have seen when she and her colleagues have been working in the office makes me confident that this is a group that can deliver. Being able to help map project has helped me with my own goal – to get to know that I am more part of the solution than part of the problem. It is I who am grateful.”
