About this event

Prior to the dramatic shift brought on by the global public health crisis as a result of the corona virus, urban development has been happening at an aggressive pace in every corner of the North American market. As consumer demands and legislation have shifted towards a more public-health focused and climate-positive approach to development, there are considerable opportunities for Nordic companies to showcase their holistic approach, high level of technical expertise and solid businesses case to keen American partners.

But as a Nordic company looking to do business in the US urban development sector, questions arise, such as: Where do you start? What are the key market factors? How will this change moving forward?

This webinar will share insights into ongoing themes in the US-market, the differences between private sector and public sector projects and identify the barriers to entry for involvement in the urban development industry.

Nordic City Solutions will share opportunities for Nordic companies to collaborate with American partners in the US market place this fall with a web-based platform:

September 10, 2020 – Digital Hackathon Challenge – 7-week collaboration challenge on US-based development projects in Minnesota and Seattle.

October 27-28* – Seattle Nordic Urban Lab (Seattle, Washington USA)

October 29-30 *– Minnesota Nordic Urban Lab (Minneapolis-St.Paul, Minnesota USA)

*In-person activities scheduled pending safe travel circumstances. Digital option for direct pitches to be provided in case of ongoing restrictions or resurgence.
