Ignite in Gothenburg for Three Important Events

Last week we participated in two industry fairs Scanautomatic and Nordic Food Industry, and at an event for the automotive supply chain together with a startup delegation.

Firstly we joined the IndTech Lounge at Scanautomatic, a three-day meetup with a focus on the future automation and digitalization of industry.

During the fair, our Program Manager and SISP’s interim CEO Stina Lantz took to the stage with indtech startups Sally R, Elonroad, Stream Analyze and IPercept Technology to discuss how large companies can implement innovative solutions in collaboration with startups.

The startups Beotop Innovation, Strainlabs and Stream Analyze participated in the fair as exhibitors.

Simultaneously, Ignite Innovation Process Leader, Linus Arnold, spoke at the Nordic Food Industry fair on how startup collaboration can save companies years of innovation work.

Seminar for the Swedish Automotive Supply Chain

On Thursday, our team joined the event for the Swedish automotive supply chain “Stora Leverantörsdagen”, organized by FKG – Fordonskomponentgruppen for their members. Over 300 people attended the event, where we arranged a seminar about the need of a more sustainable automotive industry throughout  the value chain, and the benefits of speeding up digitalization in collaboration with Swedish startups.

The seminar included an interview with Magnus Lundin (Scania Group) and a panel discussion with representatives from the startups Compular, Elonroad, Gimic and IPercept Technology. The startups also had the chance to pitch on stage and exhibit their innovations.

”For us it is a great opportunity to exhibit Swedish startups to the automotive industry and its subcontractors, and we got a great response and a lot of curious questions from the audience. I hope this event will lead to some of the attendants trying out our matchmaking process, and lead to new collaboration projects between Swedish Startups and FKG members,” says Ignite’s Key Partner Manager (Corporates), Niklas Sikström.

First Exhibitions After the Pandemic

Ignite Project Manager Matchmaking, Linn Sidahl said the week was one of the first exhibitions after the pandemic and highlighted the importance of meeting up in person.

“It was a good way for startups to meet the industry and corporates to scout new technology trends in the automation process and food industry. We at Ignite ended the week filled with new inspiration and so much energy from meeting startups, members and partners,” she concludes.
