Everyone’s heard about Silicon Valley and what they do for the tech industry, but what about Sweden? As one of the most innovative countries in the world, Stockholm is second only to the renown American tech hub. According to the European Commission, Sweden is the most innovative country in Europe. Sweden’s system for innovation is highly internationalized in terms of global research collaboration, global generation of innovation and global sourcing. As well, Sweden’s innovation network spans multiple countries with an emphasis in the U.S. and Europe.

As such, SACCNY is gearing up to promote Swedish innovation on another level. Of course, the Chamber has its exciting annual conferences, Innovate46, focusing on innovation, and Sustainology, emphasizing FoodTech, but the Chamber is also looking to expand its stage for spotlights. This includes areas such as sustainable fashion and innovative VR/AR. What will Impact Track demonstrate for Swedish innovation? Make sure to be a part of it and you will see!
