35 companies, researchers and CSOs gathered last Tuesday for the Growth House Northern Jutland / Business Aalborg / acces2innovation workshop on partnership driven innovation.
Key note speakers were representatives from the company ViewWorld that produces app-based solutions for emergency and relief-aid, Grundfos and Danish Red Cross that talked about their partnership Lifelink® in Kenya.
“We had only expected about half the number of visitors. This turnout indicates that there is a lot of interest from local companies in gaining access to the emerging markets in East Africa – and to establish new partnerships,” says access2innovation CEO Jacob Ravn.
The workshop in Aalborg was the first in a series of workshops that will be held all over Denmark during the spring and early summer.
Along with a series of new business cases and financial opportunities, acces2innovation will be pushing even harder to realise the potential within partnership driven innovation between companies, researchers, NGOs, CSOs and other institutiuons.
