Silicon Valley Office
The Vinnova Silicon Valley Office located at Stanford University is a way for the agency to facilitate connections between the Swedish Innovation System and the ecosystem of Silicon Valley.
Vinnova in Silicon Valley
The office objective is to contribute to Vinnova’s main goals: to improve the innovation capacity in Sweden for sustainable growth and for the benefit of society.
The Silicon Valley Office has essentially three missions:
- Trendspotting and benchlearning to assess possible policy implications for Sweden, such as input into new or existing Vinnova programs.
- To leverage and add value to present Vinnova investments, for instance by facilitating access for Swedish Startups to the Silicon Valley Ecosystem
- To increase the awareness in the Bay Area of Sweden as a dynamic innovative region, and Swedish actors as interesting partners in the innovation process.
The Silicon Valley office is located at Stanford University. The office is also a member of the Nordic Innovation House.
Fellowships at the Vinnova Silicon Valley office and accelerator program TINC are launched in collaboration with the Wallenberg Foundation or with the Nordic Innovation House.
