Nordic Food industry presents Innovation Hub
In 2022, Nordic Food Industry premieres at Svenska Mässan and creates a meeting place for the sustainable food industry of the future. A leading word for Nordic Food Industry is innovation, and this is expressed in several segments at the fair. One of them is the Innovation Hub – an area where companies get the opportunity to meet technology-driven startups.
Ignite’s matchmaking at Nordic Food Industry
Parallel to the fair, Ignite Sweden will offer digital matchmaking. Ignite is a non-profit organization that works to increase the innovation rate of Swedish companies by matching them with startups and enabling commercial collaborations.
– Within the matchmaking we conduct in parallel with the fair and the Innovation Hub, we look at the problems, challenges, needs and prioritized technology areas that exist with the companies. Then we find startups within both our network and among those who participate in the Innovation Hub to find a match that can enable a solution, says Linn Sidahl, project manager at Ignite Sweden.
On site, Ignite offers a tour for entrepreneurs where they have the opportunity to meet the startups exhibiting at the Innovation Hub.
– This is a unique chance to explore the startups participating in the Innovation Hub and to see opportunities to increase their technological height. The focus of the startups on site are solutions that digitise the industry and manufacturing processes, says Linn.
Ignite steps on the scene!
During Nordic Food Industry Ignite will also lead a session on stage.
– We will appear on stage to talk about a preliminary study that we have carried out during the spring. The conclusion was a model for bringing together several support actors to make directed actions within the relevant challenge for the food area. And of course we also want to raise the topic of startup collaborations within the food industry, Linn concludes.
