With her company, Caritta Seppä provides more digital mobility by ensuring that the necessary energy is always available. Even when it comes to transportation, this mobility will be more important than ever for her in the future: “I believe that we will be even more mobile with the way we move, the way we work, and the way we want to live our lives. I see us being more involved in utilizing new technology advancements as part of our everyday lives, such as using drones for delivery, choosing between different methods of transportation from self-driving taxis/cars to electric cars, working outside offices and carrying meetings through VR technology, and having your own portable energy methods to ensure power all day and night long.“
As a founder, Caritta Seppä knows exactly what hurdles there are to overcome and what attitude is needed to build a successful company. She encourages young entrepreneurs to take the necessary steps: “If you have an idea, a dream you believe in and want to make it into a reality, don’t let your background, your skills, or lack of them to stop you from following your passion. You don’t need to be the best nor the smartest in your industry and you don’t need to have the fanciest degree in order to succeed. What you need is grit and the willingness and attitude to keep pushing forward and to be ready to fall down and fail over and over again without feeling ashamed in front of the whole world. Pain is part of life, but it is only momentary and will go away. Feeling of greatness and glory, that can last forever.“
The Finnish company Tespack specializes in mobile energy, in designing, developing and patenting portable energy solutions for people and companies working in off-grid regions. Their vision is to make every individual energy independent. Tespack combines solar energy, IoT and power electronics to power all mobile devices anywhere, anytime. Rescue Workers and NGOs such as Plan International, for example, can respond faster and more efficiently and work in rural regions independently with tech like this. Even the first astronauts on Mars might benefit from Tespack technology due to their partnerships with scientists and experts in different fields.
