Event

Stockholm Innovation and Growth (Sting), the Swedish Energy Agency, Cleantech Scandinavia, Tillväxtverket, NEFCO, Nasdaq, City of Stockholm and the World Energy Council presented Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day 2020.

 

Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day have become a unique opportunity to meet carefully selected sustaintech companies that show rapid sales growth and have matured beyond seed investment stage – from A round level companies to recently listed companies in a variety of sustaintech sectors.

The Sweden Sustaintech venture day combines a focused outlook on key sector growth opportunities and successful investment strategies with carefully selected Sustaintech company presentations.

 

The widened sector approach from Greentech to the broader Sustaintech sector allows us to include
a wider selection of sustainability related digital companies from the fast growing Swedish tech-scene.

 

The strong sector growth and matured markets for sustainable business solutions combined with the scaled company selection provide good investment opportunities for a range of investors from business angels, family offices, corporate investors, larger sustainability funds and venture capital companies.

 

The event offers a unique opportunity to meet carefully selected sustaintech companies that show
rapid sales growth and have matured beyond seed investment stage – from A round level companies
to recently listed companies in a variety of sustaintech sectors. Digital business models,
where applicable, have been prioritized in the selection.

 

During the day, there also had keynote speakers outlining their view on sector growth
and investment opportunities as well as key success factors for sustaintech investments.
