This is the final race for the TOP 10 companies from our 10th Edition of the Nordic Cleantech Open. It is our immense pleasure to invite them in Malmö on November 16th, for a final pitch for the Cleantech Capital Day audience.
The race was tough for these companies who already went through several rounds of selection in the past few months. The 10th Edition of the Nordic Cleantech Open received 139 applications from all corners of the Nordics and the Baltics, and the Top 10 companies is the result of a long selection process where companies where evaluated based on a written application at first, a preliminary evaluation which was complemented by an assessment of their performance at the Nordic Camp.
Held at Smygehus Havsbad, the Nordic Camp provided the opportunity to the Top 25 companies to pitch and present their case to several members of our jury panel, which this year consisted of 52 professionals coming various backgrounds – industry, venture capital, public funding and regional development. The networking opportunities and one-on-one meetings held at the Nordic Camp were yet another opportunity for the Top 25 companies to exchange and gain knowledge from our highly skilled jury panel and members’ network. Check out our video to find at more about Nordic Camp!
At last, the Top 10 will deliver a final presentation at the Nordic Cleantech Open Finals & Cleantech Capital Day. To meet these brilliant entrepreneurs, make sure to join us for the Nordic Cleantech Open Finals and Cleantech Capital Day, our upcoming flagship event on November 16th-17th in Malmö. This event will host the finals of the competition as well as an array of interesting topic discussions and company presentations focused on reaching climate neutrality. In partnership with TechConnect Europe and expected participation of 400 professionals at the table, this event will bring the opportunity to reflect on the latest cleantech developments and their impact potential for reaching net zero by 2050.
For the Nordic Cleantech Open finals we are inviting all TOP 25 companies to join us for an exciting day which will end with the selection of the three winners and celebration of another great cycle of Nordic Cleantech Open with a cocktail and diner at Malmö Live.
