Sveriges startups är i framkant när det gäller att skapa innovativa lösningar för att möta stora samhällsutmaningar såsom miljö och energi, en åldrande befolkning, cirkulära kretslopp och integration, därför är det viktigt för vår framtid att de utgör en självklar del av de offentliga aktörernas leverantörsnätverk.

SKR – Sveriges Kommuner och Regioner och SISP – Swedish Incubators and Science Parks, tillsammans med Ignite, bjuder in i syfte att sätta ljuset på hur Sveriges kommuner och regioner kan samarbeta med små innovativa bolag.

Arrangemanget vänder sig till dig som jobbar i offentlig sektor, till dig som vill göra affärer med offentlig sektor, till dig som jobbar i en inkubator eller Science Park, och till dig som är intresserad och nyfiken av att veta mer om hur kommuner och regioner kan samarbeta med startups.
