More about the event: 

Together with Pier 71, MPA, and our esteemed partners in Team Norway, we warmly welcome you to the Singapore Norway maritime matchmaking event on the final day of Singapore Maritime Week.

This is the occasion where action meets ambition in a tangible and effective way.

We invite startups with innovative solutions to showcase their ideas and solutions to larger industrial companies and investors. The goal is to create new business opportunities to contribute to sustainable solutions for the immense challenges of reducing carbon emissions and meeting decarbonization targets to address climate change.

This event was fruitful and successful at MBS during last year’s SMW. This year, we are further perfecting it. We have space for 54 people in a roundtable format. There will be introductions from a large company, a startup, and an investor to set the stage for the Round-Robin matchmaking.
