Software with the goal of changing house construction

Gjest: Renate Straume

Co-founder / CEO


Med Vert: Silvija Seres

In the third episode of our warm-up series with Lørn.tech x OiW, Silvija chats to the CEO of Varig, Renate Straume. Varig’s sustainability software tracks the construction industry’s climate emissions. Straume discusses how their proptech will provide critical data to property owners to minimize their carbon footprints and engage tenants and owners in the solution. What can you learn from Varig data-driven approach to finding sustainable solutions?

Who are you and how did you become interested in innovation / research?
"Creative sifting" - with diverse backgrounds and the quest to work smart (I dislike doing the same thing again)

What is the most important thing you do at work?
Find solutions that make the world a better place ...

What do you focus on in technology / innovation?
That it should work and deliver value today

Why is it exciting?
We gather the threads and have simplified something that is difficult on many levels. Knowledge, communication and scalability are just a few examples.

What do you think are the most interesting controversies?
What can (and should) technology solve and what is the consultant's table? I think the EU has been smart and has made sustainability profitable in a whole new way - but it lacks a lot!

Your own relevant projects last year?
Varig. It was to find the "starting point", verify and now scale.

Your other favorite examples of similar projects, internationally and nationally?
A lot of exciting things are happening in both building optimization - Both from an "energy" perspective but also a user perspective

What do you think is relevant knowledge for the future?
Oh, maybe how to make information relatable? What do we do uniquely well in Norway from this? We have a "flat" culture and everyone comes up with ideas.

A favorite quote?
It's a marathon not a sprint, or maybe a 'learn fast'.

Don’t wait, just start and do something. You don’t even have to do the right thing the first time. Just do something and learn from it
