THANK YOU FOR THIS YEAR'S INNOVATE46!

Each year, Innovate46 aims to highlight the value of groundbreaking, Swedish entrepreneurship by showcasing some of the most disruptive and promising Swedish startups right now and bringing them to the very center of everything business: New York. This year, we wanted to raise the bar and invite the corporate world into the conversation by discussing the importance of corporate-startup collaboration in fostering innovation and mutually beneficial partnerships. Ensuing a day of thought-provoking panel discussions, extraordinary pitches, keynotes and engaging workshops, we believe that we managed to present the power of innovation and WinningTogether.

But this would never have worked without you. Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you next year!
