About the event / Cleantech Showcase - Toronto 26th-27th, Boston 28th-29th & New York 30th of September

The Nordics is generally viewed as one of the most pioneering cleantech regions in the world and now you will have a chance to meet some of the most exciting companies originating from there. These companies have grown in this innovative Nordic system with unique expertise, generous public funding and a solid home market. Now they are coming to Toronto, Boston and New York to find partners, investors, customers and to reach a platform from which they can get their unique solutions out on the North American market.

There will be three Showcase events – one in Toronto on the 26th, one in Boston on the 28th and one in New York on the 30th of September. The events are organized in partnership by Cleantech Scandinavia, MaRS Discovery District (Toronto), Pierce Atwood (Boston), Capital A Partners (New York) and Pepper Hamilton (New York).

As a compliment to the above showcases, there will be two tours taking place, one on the 27th in Toronto and one on the 29th in Boston.

As such, this is a unique opportunity to meet some of the best cleantech companies from the Nordics, Toronto, Boston and New York on one occasion. In addition you will also meet investors and industry actors from all three regions, effectively creating a platform for all to form partnerships for potential co-investments and other business opportunities.

Participation will be by invitation only.
