With 400 companies at Ideon, it is difficult to keep track of what everyone is doing. We want to make it easier for all of us to get to know one another by inviting you behind the scenes. Every other week, one company will take over our Instagram account and share their working life with you. Cleantech Scandinavia are hosting our account this week.

You’ll be showing us what’s going on at Cleantech Capital Day in Oslo next week. Can you tell us more about the event?
The Cleantech Capital Day is Cleantech Scandinavia’s flagship event of the year. Placed in the beautiful city of Oslo, the event will bring together the latest from an ever-evolving cleantech scene with talented entrepreneurs, eager investors and representatives from both city and industry. Our focus is as always to gather the most relevant actors within the field of cleantech and provide them with the best possible networking opportunities.
One of the main attractions during the event is the Nordic Cleantech Open Finals where our chosen 10 cleantech companies will duke it out for the chance to win the prestigious competition.
Cleantech Capital Day will as always aim the spotlight on interesting topics and for the 2017 event we have an eclectic variety of subjects.
Are there any areas where you would like a closer cooperation or exchange of ideas with other Ideon Companies?
We are of course always looking for new innovative cleantech companies and partners to help these companies to flourish!
