On November 16th-17th, we organized the second edition of our Forest Innovation Summit, and it was a great success.  The two-day conference facilitated knowledge sharing between entrepreneurs, leaders, and organizations from the forest sector of Sweden and California. 

We had some great start-ups from both the US and Sweden pitching their innovative ideas, and the audience was engaged and curious. A big thanks to all the speakers and panelists who brought their insights and contributed to interesting discussions. In total, we had more than 50 speakers who shared their knowledge and perspectives!
