Two Nordic firms shortlisted for future unicorn award

Europe’s largest trade association DigitalEurope has unveiled the three finalists for its annual “Future Unicorn Award,” with the winner to be announced next week by a European Commissioner.

As many of Europe’s unicorns are from Nordics,so are also two of the three shortlisted firms.

The three finalists are Exeger from Sweden – the inventor and producer of a patented solar cell technology, Ocean Sun from Norway – A solution provider and design architect for floating solar power plants and Oncompass Medicine from Hungary – An AI-based medical software to choose the targeted cancer therapy.

Running for the fourth year in a row, the “Future Unicorn Award” celebrates scale-ups from across Europe that have the potential to become the future European tech giants. It is compiled in collaboration with DigitalEurope’s  national trade associations.

This year, 21 companies from 17 European countries were nominated for the award, representing a variety of digitally-transforming sectors, including financial technologies, education technologies, e-health, energy, security and more.
