Ignite Sweden at TechBBQ

On September 13-14, Elijah Aldana and Arwin Zendehrokh represented Ignite at TechBBQ in Copenhagen for a jam packed two day program full of networking, pitches and fruitful discussions.

Ignite Sweden was a Community Partner for the event, which saw a wide variety of Nordic actors from Denmark, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Sweden coming together to discuss similarities, differences and opportunities to promote the region’s growth.

There were also several other international ecosystems attending from Europe and beyond including the EDB Singapore, Startup Hokkiado, Montreal International, allowing for even more important conversations between these innovation actors.

Ignite was inspired by the event, with Elijah saying “The Hygge was real! As a first time attendee it felt like I was already a welcome member of the community, with a super friendly energy making it easy to strike up conversations. The unexpected networking was so easy because everyone felt like they were on the same page and the life science startups in Novo Nordisk especially were mind boggling!” says Elijah.

Arwin adds that “TechBBQ showed us a vibrant ecosystem with lots of opportunities and actors that work for progress and innovation. For me it was interesting to see a tight-knit life science scene backed by industry, science parks and universities that produces relevant and scalable solutions.”

A special thanks to Dominika Wilinska for inviting Ignite to join as a Community Partner.
