SEaB Energy generates spotlight on STEM

17 November 2017

Sandra Sassow, one of the Science Park’s most decorated CEOs, collected the ‘Spotlight on STEM’ award at the Women in Business Awards in September.

Hosted by The Business Magazine and sponsored, amongst others, by Barclays and KPMG, the award recognised Sandra’s achievements in the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and the application of these skills, through her leadership at SEaB Energy, by championing technology that addresses climate change.

Ms Sassow commented: “Although the gender gap in the field of STEM is slowly closing, it has become a personal goal of mine to grow female participation in science and technology. These awards, therefore, are an important stage to showcase role models that will, hopefully, encourage the next generation of women to enter into these sectors”.

She was also recently shortlisted for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the Investor Allstars Awards, which is often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of the European entrepreneurial and investor community.

The SEaB Energy team has spent much of the summer travelling with a schedule that has included: the ‘Change Now’ International Summit in Paris, the ‘World Smart Energy Week’ in Japan, and RWM, Europe’s largest Waste, Energy, Recycling and Water event. It has also been involved in ‘Unreasonable Goals’, a venture led by the US Department of State that brings together some of the world’s largest institutions and the most impactful entrepreneurs.
