Packbridge’s Johan Mårtensson and Tony Spodnjak spent half a week in Stockholm with a packed schedule of meetings with companies including ICA, Lantmännen and Innventia. They also took the opportunity to meet with Swedish Incubators & Science Parks (SISP).

Last year, we gave several startup companies the opportunity to present themselves to the industry at Top Packaging Summit, and the response was very good from both sides. The industry can benefit from inspiration from innovative entrepreneurs and they, in turn, can create a partnership or obtain a test bed for their products. The prospects for fruitful win-win collaborations are good.

Since Top Packaging Summit, we have worked intensively to find startup companies with business concepts and products that can be commercialised within the packaging industry.

Packbridge met SISP and discussed how we can benefit from each other’s networks to form a better connection between industry and startup companies.

The results will come later, but there is certainly great potential for useful collaboration!
