Sweden and Canada have much in common—both countries have relatively small populations, advanced economies and an expanding relationship in technology innovation. Throughout its three-week run, this event will highlight groundbreaking products from promising Swedish startups in the fields of IT and Communications, Clean Technology, Gaming and Life Science, including:
- Robots for elderly care service
- Computers controlled by eye movement
- Adhesive strips that loosen when you shine light on them
The event also features an extensive program of seminars, discussion panels, keynotes and business exchanges—the ideal forum for entrepreneurs, business advisors, students, researchers and innovation experts to connect, learn and share knowledge.
Global innovation is a central theme of this event, given that both Canada and Sweden have had to reach beyond their borders to seek international partners, customers and investors in fertile markets abroad. Join representatives from Swedish and Canadian commercialization hubs as they discuss the best ways to build entrepreneurship through collaboration and create successful models for global business innovation.
Business leaders from both countries will share their thoughts on how best to build momentum and get great ideas to market faster. Experienced entrepreneurs from Canada and Sweden will also have the opportunity to meet international industry representatives and venture capital firms.
