During the annual conference Ignite Sweden Days where representatives from corporates, public sector, startups, incubators, science parks and governmental agencies are brought together to discuss how co-creation and collaboration is the best way to innovate and create sustainable impact.
Besides interesting round tables and talks, Ignite announced the winners of the Ignite Awards for their achievements in innovation and collaboration during 2021.

During dinner, Thermaiscan were called up on stage to accept the prize with this motivation:
Strong engagement, credibility and a top-notch predictive medicine solution have been the key to success for Thermaiscan.
The company has initiated more collaborations with corporates through Ignite Sweden than any other startup this year.
