Launch of Climate Solver 2010

Launch of Climate Solver 2010


Five new climate entrepreneurs will be presented at WWF’s annual Climate Solver Conference in Stockholm tomorrow. In addition to presentations by the Climate Solver community’s latest additions, we will hear the results of interviews with entrepreneurs from earlier years. It will be interesting to hear whether or not coniditions have improved within the Swedish innovations system. Have investors gained a better understanding of this sector, which is sorely needed if they are going to have the confidence to make investments in this field. Has the application process for public grants and loans been simplified or are entrepreneurial companies still required to spend endless hours on applications rather than on developing their businesses. We hope to discuss these as well as other related questions.

We are also looking forward to an interesting panel discussion with our new State Secretary at the Ministry of Industry, Daniel Johansson. Harald Overholm, Investment Director at Sustainable Technology Partners Nordic will bring us the investor’s perspective on how to stimulate private investments in cleantech while Olle Blidholm from IKEA will share how big business views their role as both potential customer and enabler of cleantech development.

Do join us if you’re in town. TryggHansa has generously offered to host this event at their main office in the center of Stockholm – Flemminggatan 18. Be aware however that the conference will be held in Swedish. View program here.
