Minnesota and Finland are already leaders in digitalization trends – so why not work together to mutual advantage? Thanks to a Minnesota delegation to Finland in 2021, a planned Finnish delegation to Minnesota in 2022 and a formal agreement linking us together, mutual business opportunities have never been better. Join us April 20th and April 21st for Digitalization and Energy: Business Opportunities for Minnesota and Finland, a virtual briefing and networking event to bring you up to date on the latest – and connect you to new potential partners.

While digitalization trends touch nearly every sector, digitalization is truly transforming energy the focus of this session. At this event you will hear from a variety of experts and learn:

  • If you are new to the Internet of Things (IoT): What is IoT in the energy sector, what does it do, and what are some examples?
  • Ideas about how to identify and utilize the opportunities presented by new technologies
  • How to connect and network with colleagues and companies across the Atlantic
  • How Minnesota and Finland are making progress toward decarbonization goals with the help of IoT technology.
  • About Salo-IoT – a campus and incubator of IoT innovators interested in connecting with compatible Minnesota companies.
  • About Finland’s plans to bring a delegation of companies – from several sectors – to Minnesota in June 2022.

Open to one-to-one side meetings with these experts? When registering, tell us about yourself and enjoy access to sign-ups for individual meetings. Be sure to return to the event platform prior to the event to connect with other participants.
