b2b ("SoftWareDays",21) #future of digital business

Sweden @ b2b Software Days

Innovation has been a cornerstone for Swedish business culture for centuries - the EU places Sweden to the first position in the Innovation Scoreboard. With established global companies such as Ericsson, Volvo, Astra Zeneca and Saab as well as upcoming unicorns like Spotify, Klarna and King, Sweden is continuing to be at the forefront of innovation. This is why this year we are proud to be hosting Sweden as the official Partner Country of B2B Software Days. 

We will dedicate a whole day to Swedish innovation and networking, staging Keynotes from some of the best corporates (on Tuesday 11/05 from 11.00 - 12.30) as well as numerous interesting workshops and panel discussions. Leading companies and participants from business and industry will be ready and available for networking at the B2B sessions. In addition, top Swedish products and solutions in the software business will be highlighted in our marketplace, providing examples of what Sweden is capable of in terms of innovative, digital, sustainable and open contributions along the entire supply chain. If you’re looking to connect with Swedish innovators and their innovations, this is the place to be. Last, the closing ceremony will include a high level discussion on achievements and future challenges of digitalization between the Minister for Energy and Digital Developme in Sweden and the Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs in Austria.
