About the event / Cleantech Showcase - Shanghai 17-20 November 2015

The Nordics is generally viewed as one of the most innovative cleantech regions in the world. The innovative cleantech companies have grown in the Nordic innovation system with unique expertise, generous public funding and a solid home market. This year they came to Shanghai to find partners, investors and customers through the China Cleantech Accelerator.

Cleantech Scandinavia brought a selection of its Nordic members, VCs and some of the rising cleantech stars from Europe at large, creating an event with excellent networking, business and investment opportunities. This was a unique opportunity to meet some of the best cleantech companies from the Nordics and Europe as well as investors, industry and city officials from China, Europe and North America.

Participation to the showcases is invitation only.
