Clean technology, such as recycling, renewable energy and energy efficiency, is one of the most popular sectors for foreign investors looking at Stockholm.
But which companies are most interesting to place your money in?
Pär Hedberg, CEO of Stockholm Innovation and Growth (Sting), a business incubator that helps entrepreneurs to build international growth, ranks six exciting cleantech companies.
"We see a massive inflow of new cleantech companies in Stockholm. The sector is booming", he told The Swedish Wire, adding that Swedish cleantech is on the rise internationally. "I just came back from China where the interest for Swedish innovative cleantech companies is massive. Several of our companies have succeeded better with their sales in China and India than in Sweden and Western Europe."
