What is the Nordic-US Food Summit?

It's a platform to bridge startups, investors, and industry leaders from the Nordics and Silicon Valley devoted to building a sustainable food system during a 4-day summit. The summit is a collaboration between Business Sweden, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Sweetfarm, SACC-SF/SV, and Björn Öste, founder of Oatly.

Why did we create this summit?

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, 2021, US 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 as well as connections to the wider food- and ag-tech ecosystems, with the aim to highlight the latest food innovation coming out of the Nordics that have the potential to scale globally.

Who should attend the summit?

The summit is primarily designed to connect Nordic food and ag companies seeking capital and expansion support with US investors and industry resources. That said, anyone active in the sustainable food space interested in connecting with like-minded companies, investors, and industry leaders across the Atlantic can join. In fact, we've created four different particiation options so that anyone who's interested in joining has the opportunity to do so!
