Vinnova in Silicon Vallay
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 and/or with the Nordic Innovation House.
