Mabel AI, a CO-AX accelerator company, Medfield Diagnostics, Verigraft, and Takara Bio, part of Sahlgrenska Science Park community, presented their companies' opportunities and highlighted the challenges they face.

“It was clear that talent attraction is a crucial issue and that it’s currently challenging to find the competence your’re looking for. It is evident that a mix of different competences working together is needed to achieve innovation and development,” said Katarina Hjernestam, Education Admin. The city of Gothenburg

"In politics, it's crucial that we grasp the real-world situation and articulate the challenges based on the input we've received from the businesses we've engaged with. Having genuine testimonials can be a valuable resource to share with our fellow party members in the council or municipal board."  Sara Sivre, Cultural committee, The City of Mölndal

"It's great to gain both a helicopter view and dive into various activities to understand what they are working towards and their challenges. It has been very informative, and in my role as a politician, I would appreciate to participate in more days like these," concludes Johan Radix, The City of Gothenburg's committee for democracy and citizen service.
