The Global Forum 2024

Almost everyone wants to expand into new markets, strike global partnerships and attract international capital – but this can be more challenging than expected. The need for a strong personal network and deep understanding of market specific conditions, cultural differences and regulatory pathways cannot be overestimated.

So, what to do?
Well, listening to people with key knowledge and relevant experience may shorten your learning curve quite dramatically (and save you from making costly mistakes).
The Global Forum offers a quick path to understanding the regional challenges and will let you connect with local experts, specialized investors and BD&L representatives from Europe, the US and Asia, offering first-hand knowledge on how to make it abroad.
Keynotes and panels will focus on sharing insights and advice on navigating new markets, finding the right partners and cross-border dealmaking, along with presentations from companies who made – or are about to make – the thrilling journey outside the Nordics.
The event is by invitation only, to ensure optimal relevance for all attendants.

Lund – A city full of possibilities

Among cobblestones and half-timbered houses, the medieval city of Lund is merged with modern buildings and innovative environments. The ties to the University are plentiful and the large number of students add their touch to the city.

The beautiful city of Lund is in the heart of the Öresund Region. Pulsating with history and culture, Lund offers a wealth of attractions for international visitors. Enjoy a range of experiences from restaurants, shopping, museums, entertainment and several hotels; all within walking distance.
Famous for its University, Lund’s 40,000 students help create a vibrant and multicultural environment. The architecturally striking city centre has plenty of meeting places and green areas including the beautiful Botanical Gardens, the City Park and  “Lundagård” park. The famous cathedral, ”Domkyrkan”, has fascinated visitors since the 12th Century and is the most popular attraction in southern Sweden with its 700,000 visitors each year.

History meets the future

Founded in the 11th Century, Lund is one of Sweden‘s oldest towns. Today, history and tradition meet innovation and the future. Renowned for its visionary thinking, Lund established one of the region’s first coin factories and the oldest Nordic school, ”Katedralskolan” in 1085. The Cathedral was built in the 12th Century and Lund University opened as Sweden‘s second institute of higher learning in 1666.

The mix of Middle Age and modern architecture is home to high-tech industry and a large graduate population. Inventions such as Bluetooth, the artificial kidney, and ultrasound were all researched here. That innovation will continue at Medicon Village, Ideon Science Park and two world-leading science institutions, Max IV and ESS, put Lund on the international map.
