As one of six Nordic companies in Agtech and Food tech, Ekobot has been selected to represent Sweden and meet American Agtech investors in Silicon Valley during the Nordic-US Food Summit in November this year.
The Nordic-US Food Summit is a meeting place that aims to initiate meetings between
investors and industry leaders from the Nordics and Silicon Valley. The focus is sustainable innovations and solutions within Foodtech and Agtech. The event is organized by Business Sweden, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Sweetfarm, SACC-SF/SV, and by Björn Öste, founder of Oatly. Other partners are Try Swedish, Business Sweden, Nordic Center at UC Berkeley, Center for Responsible Business at Berkeley Haas, UC Davis Venture Catalyst, The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco & Silicon Valley, Björn Öste, Business Iceland and Denmark's Ministry of Foreign Affairs .
Ekobot's CEO Erik Jonuks comments on the news:
– We have been cooperating with Business Sweden in the USA for some years now. It is of course an honor to be able to represent Ekobot and Sweden at an event that aims to showcase a Swedish innovation to American investors. The Agtech sector is very hot in the US right now and in recent years large sums have been invested in companies similar to Ekobot. It will of course also be extremely exciting to be able to present Ekobot in the mythical Silicon Valley and to build networks in the US not only among investors but also among other possible partners for Ekobot.
