INNOTECH NORDICS, 20 NOVEMBER COPENHAGEN AND 21 NOVEMBER, STOCKHOLM
On 20 November, we partnered with Emerging Europe and Talent Garden Rainmaking in #Copenhagen and on 21 November with Emerging Europe and Norrsken House in Stockholm to welcome a delegation of tech companies from Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) to Denmark and Sweden to form new partnerships to support both Nordic / Baltic and CEE tech company collaboration and growth. A great and really interesting time was had by all – and boy were us Nordics and Baltics shocked at the size of the CEE companies, of course reflecting the size of CEE countries as well as the breath and depth of digital /tech talent in the CEE region. We need that talent! Message us on Leader Island or drop us a line if you want to know more about opportunities to expand in CEE and our CEE collaboration.
