Delving into Business Relationships in France

As part of Team Sweden Tech, Ignite Sweden joined a deeptech startup delegation in Paris for matchmaking sessions with local corporates and participation in the global conference, Hello Tomorrow.

The Swedish deeptech startups that were part of the delegation were Aligned Bio, Archeri, BL!XT, Caplyzer, Flexpenser, Fusion Group, GREEN14, IPercept, Nano Textile Solutions, Novatron Fusion Group, NoviOcean by NOVIGE AB, Nrlyze, Oxide AI, Phoenix BioPower, PokaMind, Proligreen, Rivus Batteries, Re:Lab, Yangi and Zparq.

The delegation journey kicked off with a matchmaking session where 13 of the participating startups had the chance to connect with five global enterprises including BP, LVMH, L’Oréal, Saint-Gobain, and A2A, in over 20 meetings.

This matchmaking opportunity enabled the startups not only to continue conversations with corporates they had previously met through Ignite but also with the possibility to establish new connections and explore potential synergies with new enterprises.

Showcasing Deeptech Startups at Hello Tomorrow Global Summit

The journey continued with participation in Europe’s largest deeptech event, Hello Tomorrow Global Summit. The 9th edition of the event gathered over 3,000 attendees, including deeptech founders, industry leaders, and investors.

This was the first time that Team Sweden Tech, an initiative from Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency, and Business Sweden, set up a booth to spotlight Swedish startups and scaleups at the event. The effort was coordinated by our lead organization SISP – Swedish Incubators & Science Parks.

During the two-day event, the startups had the chance to participate in the activities hosted at the Swedish booth, including mingling with the Swedish delegation, where they connected with corporate representatives and investors interested in learning more about the Swedish ecosystem and its deeptech startups.
