In order to attract more foreign investors to finding partners in Stockholm and Uppsala, the business region is launching a top list with the hottest investment prospects.
The Stockholm-Uppsala Life Science Investment Hotlist will present the most attractive and interesting companies from the region.
“The overriding objective is to make the companies visible among the investors and bring about meetings and presentation opportunities. We’ll reach 150 meetings for the companies during 2013,” says Ylva Hultman-Erlandsson, business development manager responsible for life science at Stockholm Business Region Development.
The list has been prepared in collaboration with the consulting firm Avanture and initially includes 20 companies, clearly defined by position, future prospects, needs and contact opportunities. By creating awareness of the list via investor meetings, PR and social media, it can be established as a tool for investors. The list will be continuously revised and companies will be added or removed.
To qualify for the list, the companies must offer a product or service, based on unique research, that will lead to a commercial solution with global potential. They must also have established themselves in the market with a finished product or service, alternatively, be close to the commercialization phase.
