Nordic-U.S. Food Summit is a platform to bridge startups, investors, and industry leaders from the Nordics and Silicon Valley devoted to building a sustainable food system during a 3-day summit.
The summit is a collaboration between Business Sweden, SACC-SF/SV, Business Finland, Business Iceland, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and Björn Öste, founder of Oatly.
The market for sustainable food and ag solutions is booming with investors actively seeking to fund startups with sustainable missions. And after Oatly's impressive IPO in May, U.S. food investors are specifically on the hunt for the next generation of Nordic food startups!
We created this summit to help facilitate these investor connections and to highlight the latest food innovation coming out of the Nordics with the potential to scale globally.
Our goal for the summit is to connect great Nordic startups with the capital and resources they need to scale their amazing innovation across the U.S. and beyond! And for U.S. investors, we aim to make introductions to fantastic investment opportunities (and hopefully the next Oatly)!
Lastly, we hope to inspire companies, policy makers, and students to collectively work towards a more sustainable food system globally.
