SIME innovation Day - Nominate your favorite entrepreneurs!

We’re kick-starting the New Year with SIME Innovation Day, and as we promised on the SIME07 Conference you have the opportunity to nominate one company to the event.

More about SIME Innovation Day:
SIME Innovation Day is a by invitation only, free event for distinguished entrepreneurs. The objective is to create a meeting place for entrepreneurial companies and to open the doors to partnerships, investments and co-operations with our Co-Hosts (Ericsson, Google, Telenor). The entrepreneurs will be able to present their cases to relevant executives from Google, Telenor and Ericsson at the venue. Either in pre-arranged speed meetings, or live on stage.
The following criteria need to be met for all companies invited to participate:
  • High level of innovation
  • Clear end user focus
  • Large market potential
  • International growth potential
  • Skilled management
  • We prefer companies/products that are already established to those that soon will be
  • We prefer companies that either want to become convergent or already have convergent solutions
If you are such a company or if there is a company you know that meet the criteria, send an email to and we'll invite the company suggested, provided that there still is a spot open.
WHERE? Polstjärnan, Sveavägen 77, Stockholm, Sweden
WHEN?February 7th, 09.00-17.00 CET
QUESTIONS? Don’t hesitate to email us at if you have any questions about the event!

"Stockholm: where the air is cold, the furniture is always stylish and not knowing the lyrics to ABBA:s dancing queen is an actual criminal offense". - Go Go Gadget With Digital Dan Dubno

I especially like the part where Dan demonstrates the infrared camera to find out whether someone is hot or not.
