Swedish American Chambers of Commerce would like to thank everyone involved in the 2011 annual Entrepreneurial Days conference, the 21st so far, for making it an interesting and rewarding success. The conference was held in the Swedish towns of Växjö and Karlskrona on September 14-16 and welcomed over 450 participants from all over the world to discuss transatlantic trade, sustainability and Telecom/IT.
“Being new at the SACC-USA since the New Year I have been one of the few who never been attending an Entrepreneurial Days conference before. I am truly delighted to learn in reality what a great transatlantic platform this is for so many; great speakers sharing their experiences in combination with the many matchmaking meetings and networking mingles going on before, under and after the conference program. Entrepreneurial Days really offer excellent opportunities for business expansion!”
As the Swedish American Chambers of Commerce aim to facilitate further trade and business between the countries we are very happy to announce that over 300 one-on-one business matchmaking sessions took place between the participants during the three days of conference. CEO of Swedish Environmental organization Cominvision, Linn Bekkevik, looking to expand and find partners in theU.S., visited E-days for the first time and was impressed by the Business Matchmaking sessions.
“The Business Matchmaking forum during Entrepreneurial Days, to be able to sit down and present, debate and discuss on partnering opportunities during an entire 30 min, is both unique and extremely rewarding. During my earlier conferences, I have never seen such an exclusive opportunity to meet and network.”
