- Together, we are now taking a considerable step towards consolidating Nordic Edge as the leading meeting place and catalyst for the smart city industry. It is also a recognition of the good work that has been done to facilitate new business opportunities in a global market, says Eimund Nygaard, CEO of Lyse.
- We want to take part in establishing a more robust business community, and see Nordic Edge and the smart city initiative as a unique opportunity to participate in the development of business opportunities aimed at a large, international market. Together with networks, in and around Nordic Edge, SR-Bank will be able to develop new technology that can help accelerate this region into one of the most prominent smart cities in the Nordic region and Europe, says Executive Vice President of SpareBank 1 SR-Bank, Glenn Sæther.
- We are very grateful for this significant strengthening of Nordic Edge AS. We can now realise our strategy of consolidating our position as the Nordic region's foremost meeting place, innovation cluster and accelerator for smart cities and communities, says CEO of Nordic Edge, Stig Finnesand.
