Program 2021


This year the theme of the event is Breakthrough technologies – from Megatrends to Megacompanies.

The program is crafted to highlight different key aspects of this theme. The commercial breakthrough and massmarket applications for many sustaintech technologies are now emerging. Hence our focus has shifted from convincing the audience that Sustaintech is a coming trend and green innovation should receive more investments (in SSVD 2019 and 2020) to talking about what technologies are the most needed and how we could accelerate the growth of the sector companies.

As we are entering into wider demand of sustaintech innovations and global environmental problems are getting more and more urgent to solve the key questions arise on what key technologies (Breakthrough technologies) will solve the largest problems and how do we scale these companies (into Megacompanies) really fast for maximum environmental impact. This will have implications for how investors could think about sectors, companies and regions both short- and longterm.
