EC2i Matchmaking mission in New York City
On Monday May 7th, the EC2i clusters from Austria (Greentech Cluster), Belgium (TWEED), Denmark (CLEAN), France (Tenerrdis), and Sweden (Sustainable Business Hub) organised the first matchmaking mission in New York City. This happened in collaboration with Brooklyn-based Urban Future Lab during the Smart Cities week. During the event, more than 17 companies from the five clusters as well as a number of Finnish companies held B2B talks with legal companies, consultants, and utilities from the American cleantech sector with a clear objective of identifying business opportunities for the European SMEs. They also participated in the Smart Cities Conference New York from Tuesday May 8th to Thursday May 10th. The next step for EC2i will be a matchmaking mission in Nanjing/Shanghai in China in mid-November 2018.
