Who this program is for - Nordic GreenTech Ecosystem Leaders

Innovation Centre Denmark, together with the embassies of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the representation of the Faroe Islands in Israel invite Nordic GreenTech ecosystem leaders working with and around GreenTech start-ups in clusters, science parks, incubators, accelerators, municipalities, government, investors and other key innovation stakeholders to join the three month Nordic-Israeli GreenTech Ecosystem Leaders Academy.

Why you should join

Nordic ecosystem advisors and leaders must embark on a life-long learning journey to improve their competencies on how best to advise green tech start-ups on fast international expansion and how to establish collaborations with private funds, corporates or similarly private facilitators of growth for start-ups with a view to paving the way for private investments in the start-ups.

Israel is globally known as the start-up nation and consistently ranks at the top of a number of innovation indices. Israel is #1 globally for VC capital/capita as well as for the number of start-ups per capita.

Using best practices from Israel, the academy provides a train-the-trainer Nordic-Israeli Innovation Academy under the theme “Using Israeli best-practice: Hypergrowth for Nordic Green Tech start-ups”.

What you stand to gain

The academy consists of:

  • 3 highly practical tutorials on the latest topics in ecosystem building
  • 3 interactive roundtables with Israeli ecosystem leaders
  • A custom mentoring program for the most dedicated 25 participants
  • 3 podcasts

All modules have been specifically developed based on the needs and interests of Nordic ecosystem leaders. As a participant, you will be given new tools to support Nordic green start-ups to scale globally with a view to bringing GreenTech solutions to the world and thereby strengthening the competitiveness of the Nordic countries. The academy will also enable you to take advantage of cooperation opportunities with various stakeholders within the Israeli innovation ecosystem.
