The second program of the EnergySpin Enterprise Accelerator, which starts in Vaasa in April, received 120 applications

ENERGY SPIN: Over 90 per cent of the applications were sent outside of Finland.

The applications came from 43 different countries from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America. Among the applicants are for example startup companies who work with battery technologies and future energy solutions.

– Vaasa region’s expertise in energy sector has had lots of publicity for example through Vaasa Gigafactory project, which certainly has made EnergySpin more popular, says Marko Koski, Head of EnergySpin.

The EnergySpin Accelerator and its operations are partnered by leading energy companies, such as Danfoss, Wärtsilä, Yaskawa/The Switch, Vaasan Sähkö, the EC, Elisa, Tieto, Viria, Citec and VNT Management. EnergySpin operations are centred in one of the leading energy clusters in the world, EnergyVaasa.
Starting the Accelerator is included in the City of Vaasa’s growth agreement with the Finnish Government, and the Vaasa Region Development Company VASEK and Technology Centre Merinova are working in collaboration to implement it. The Regional Council of Ostrobothnia is also involved.
