Nordic Cleantech Innovation Link

Who we are

Nordic Cleantech Innovation Link is an independent, non-profit network that brings open innovation to industries searching for clean and sustainable technologies for the future. NCIL is Cleantech Inn Sweden, ETEQ Venture in Denmark and OREEC in Norway. Acting without ownership interest in member SMEs, NCIL works as a promoter and facilitator to increase business opportunities for everyone—industry partners and member SMEs alike. Our work is funded in part by national representatives, other public bodies and industry partners.

ETEQ  in Denmark aims to assist innovative and ambitious early-stage business ventures in realising their full potential. ETEQ Venture Support creates value for ventures in three ways: sharpening strategies, searching for ideal investor(s) and guiding for optimal exits. Particularly focused on hi-tech, cleantech and medtech venture projects, ETEQ Venture Support also assists corporate and financial investors searching for venture opportunities.
