Major interest in Flemingsberg Science ideas competition
This year, Flemingsberg Science is contributing to the national business plan competition Venture Cup with its own prize: the Flemingsberg Science Award, which celebrates ideas from Flemingsberg that contribute to a better world.
Flemingsberg Science Award is part of Venture Cup IDEA. The winner can look forward to prize money of SEK 5,000 and a free place at Flemingsberg’s Science Innovation hub for three months.
The last day for submissions was November 7, and Venture Cup IDEA attracted nearly 1,000 entries from all over Sweden.
“We’ve now gone through each entry connected to Flemingsberg and we’re delighted to have seen so many great ideas. The next step is to evaluate entries together with Venture Cup,” says Björn Varnestig, CEO, Flemingsberg Science.
The prize is intended to encourage more students, workers and Flemingsberg residents to take the step to developing their business ideas. The hope is that the ideas will contribute to addressing societal challenges such as climate change, demographic issues, mental health and growing inequality.
Flemingsberg Science Award will be awarded on December 11, in conjunction with the Venture Cup Top 20 – Region East award ceremony.
