Summer is approaching and this incubation year is coming to an end. It has been an exciting time since our last newsletter. We recently had our second Business Review where the current innovation projects presented their final business plans. We also had a release event where our CEO, Morgan Skarin, presented Encubator’s new Encubation Update.
We are very happy to inform you that Innovationsbron and Hans E Olssons Foundation have decided to increase their financial support to Encubator.
12 new innovation projects have been chosen. With new partnerships between idea providers and entrepreneurial talents, we have an exciting new year of incubation and business development to look forward to after the summer!
Our organisation is growing. We are glad to introduce our new co-workers, Christopher Hedvall and Emma Sandberg. Our Marketing Manager Malin Rydell is currently on parental leave and will be back after the summer.
