InnovateNordics Summit

& U.S. Acceleration Program


Is entering the U.S. market the next step for you and your business? Do you – or someone you know – have an idea you want to accelerate on the U.S. market? Are you a Nordic clean- or foodtech scaleup looking to fuel your U.S. expansion? Apply to SACCNY’s InnovateNordics Acceleration Program, Meetup & Demo Day.


SACCNY’s renowned tech and innovation meetup, Innovate46, continues to play it’s crucial role by annually supporting and showcasing transformative entrepreneurship from Sweden – a leading global unicorn factory – with an emphasis on cleantech and green energy. Now expanding its powerful reach, SACCNY is proud to present InnovateNordics.

InnovateNordics will showcase top innovators focused on tackling today’s most pressing challenges while creating business and growth within the areas of food- and agtech from the collective Nordics: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland & Iceland.

Recognizing the power of combined problem solving in the areas of clean- and foodtech, these Nordic trailblazers will together do a deep dive in the tools and tricks for effective U.S. establishment and growth, while pitching on center stage in the financial capital of the world – New York City.

Are you now thinking your business should be a part of this opportunity? If so, we invite you to apply here for consideration to be part of a select and carefully curated group of emerging Nordic clean- and foodtech disruptors, and the 2021 SACCNY U.S. Acceleration Program and InnovateNordics Summit.
