Where Startups Meet Corporations

Innovate46, SACCNY’s most anticipated annual conference, will take place at NASDAQ on October 10. Find out its history, major highlights, and what you cannot miss about the Acceleration Program.

While startups are typically synonymous with innovation and disruption and corporations are equipped with the knowledge, resources and connections; both really need each other to innovate. Recognizing this, SACCNY launched its annual conference, Innovate46, where the next generation of Swedish startups can meet, launch, network, and develop groundbreaking collaborations within the corporate world. Beyond discussing the importance of thriving and collaborative ecosystems, the conference looks deeply into building bridges between startups and large corporations in Sweden and the U.S.

This year, the full-day conference will take place at Nasdaq MarketSite on October 10, and feature representatives from American and Scandinavian venture capital firms, researchers, cutting-edge companies and prolific startups, for expert talks and interactive workshops. By invitation only, each application will be evaluated equally. So for those who are interested, sign up now to receive more information and help secure an invitation to this exciting event. The week-long acceleration program, co-organized by SACCNY, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, and the Swedish Energy Agency is one of the conference’s biggest highlights.

“Since entrepreneurs need strong local partners with valuable networks to assist their launch, we believe that the Innovate46 conference and joint one-week accelerator program are exactly what Swedish tech companies need,” says Arash Sangari, a representative of the Swedish Agency for Economic and Region Growth.

The “Innovate46-week” offers practical know-how and resources on business optimization in the U.S.; insights into marketing strategy, knowledge about the legal system, plus perspective on import and tariffs. Moreover, there will be exciting pitching opportunities for ten selected companies at Nasdaq MarketSite on Times Square.As an exclusive preview of the anticipated event, here is a chance to meet eight of the ten companies on the next page and learn what makes them special, why you should partner up with them, and how they can help drive innovation.
