Cleantech Capital Day 2017

Join us for another Capital Success, this time in Oslo, Norway!

Cleantech Scandinavia’s flagship event of the year, the Cleantech Capital Day is travelling across the boarder to our neighbouring country of Norway.

Placed in the beautiful city of Oslo, the event will bring together the latest from an ever-evolving cleantech scene with talented entrepreneurs, eager investors and representatives from both city and industry. Our focus is as always to gather the most relevant actors within the field of cleantech and provide them with the best possible networking opportunities.

One of the main attractions during the event is of course the Nordic Cleantech Open final where our chosen 10 cleantech companies will duke it out for the chance to win the prestigious competition.

Cleantech Capital Day will as always aim the spotlight on interesting topics and for the 2017 event we have an eclectic variety of subjects.
