Nominated to the Nordic-Nanotechnology-Company-of-the-Year-Award

Smoltek is nom­i­nat­ed to the Nordic-Nan­otech­nol­o­gy-Com­pa­ny-of-the-Year-Award. The award will be hand­ed out at NanoFourm, in Upp­sala, Swe­den, Sep­tem­ber 25–26. The nom­i­nat­ed com­pa­nies will pitch their busi­ness idea to a jury that decides which com­pa­ny is the best role mod­el towards oth­er Nordic start-ups with­in nanotechnology.

- It is fan­tas­tic that Smoltek is receiv­ing atten­tion from this home ground are­na. Smoltek was already spun out from Chalmers Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy back in 2005 and we see our­selves as a nan­otech­nol­o­gy pio­neer. The tim­ing for this nom­i­na­tion is real­ly inter­est­ing due of a com­mer­cial break­through with­in reach, says Anders Johans­son, Smoltek CEO.

NanoFo­rum is a year­ly nan­otech­nol­o­gy con­fer­ence that brings togeth­er key entre­pre­neurs, investors, researchers and pol­i­cy­mak­ers in the Nordic Region. This is the place to get to know what the Nordic region has to offer, all under one roof, with­in the nan­otech­nol­o­gy field. The con­fer­ence is orga­nized by SwedNan­oTech and the City of Uppsala.
