ACTION traveled to Sweden in May to re-ignite existing, and forge new relationships with cleantech and medtech organizations based there. Cleantech Scandinavia, based in Lund, is the leading promoter of sustainable innovation in the Nordic and Baltic markets. The organization held the 8th edition of its Nordic Cleantech Open Finals in Stockholm. At the Finals, 10 semifinalists pitched to an audience of investors, industrial partners and other organizations, and the top three companies were announced. The event was held at Munchenbryggeriet, a former German brewery which brewed beer on the site from 1857-1971. The beautifully restored building is now a popular event venue, offering a fully sustainable meeting place.
