In collaboration with SACCNY, the Swedish Energy Agency is opening a brand-new cleantech hub at Gateway. Much like the agency’s other hubs in San Francisco, London, and Shanghai, this branch at the Chamber’s Innovation platform is also dedicated to supporting Swedish cleantech companies, supporting their internalization journey. ”This is part of our strategy to deliver sharp and smart solutions with great scalability and potential to contribute in the transformation to a sustainable energy system,” says Andreas Stubelius, Portfolio Manager at The Swedish Energy Agency. In Anna Throne-Holst’s, President of SACCNY, opinion New York is a perfectly chosen location. ”As one of the biggest cleantech markets in the world, the city provides endless possibilities for highlighting Swedish innovations and transformative solutions.”
As per tradition, SACCNY’s board and special friends gathered for two days for the annual board meeting in Stockholm to network, discuss and elaborate on the Chamber’s operations. To start, SACCNY and host Epicenter, kicked off the event with a welcoming reception on August 20. Then, at the annual board meeting on August 21, SACCNY’s President Anna-Throne Holst presented the Chamber’s major achievements in 2018 at the law firm and SACCNY silver member, Mannheimer Swartling, and discussed future projects and initiatives with distinguished board members. The day closed with a board dinner at Nasdaq sponsored by Nasdaq, Teknikföretagen, and Epicenter. There, participating expo companies in this year’s Innovate46 Acceleration Program—co-created by SACCNY, The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, and the Swedish Energy Agency— pitched their best ideas and shared more about their work.
