Last week we wrapped up cohort #1 with great success! It is amazing to see how we together have accelerated growth for each company. The feedback on the program was really good, so now we are really excited to start working with cohort #2!
Our mission to create new and sustainable jobs in our region continues. We see that the expected job losses due to our transition away from oil and gas is coming, and it is coming fast.
All companies in this cohort #2 are all producing hardware that will have a positive effect on our environment. As we see it, they will all play a major part in ensuring regional growth and sustainable jobs for the future. To meet the global demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly companies these four could not be a better fit!
We kick it all off, digitally, on Monday February 8th - and the whole Slingshot team is looking forward to spend the next 90 days with the "new fab four":
