Startup and corporate collaboration

Forty four meetings between startups and large corporates where several can lead to concrete collaborations. This is the result of the Ignite event in Umeå on March 27th.

Ignite Sweden is working to tie Sweden’s startups with large corporates through matchmaking events. On March 27, Uminova Innovation’s premises were filled with startups and large companies when Ignite North was organized for the second time.

Uminova Innovation is one of the incubators that are partners with Ignite Sweden.

“Ignite is a great opportunity for our startups. They can have meetings with large corporates in a unique way, to establish tighter bonds. They also know that the big companies are here to take part of the innovative ideas and solutions that come from startups”, says Anders Blomberg, business developer at Uminova Innovation.

The project is led by THINGS, STING, LEAD, MINC and Uminova Innovation in collaboration with SISP. Ignite Sweden is co-funded by Vinnova.
