Life science and High-tech come together during DemoDate day.

Almost 50 companies were exhibiting at DemoDate, a networking event held Oulu´s City Theatre on May 4.

The DemoDate gathered 50 exhibitors and 200 guests to get to know Oulu’s hi tech products and find synergy and export progress.

“The day culminated in ARM’s workshop and Varta, Bosch, STMicroelectronics, Telitit and Gemalto’s seminar speeches”, BusinessOulu’s ICT and Nano Key Account Director Janne Mustonen says.

According to Account Director Heidi Tikanmäki it was encouraging to see so many Life Science companies at the event.

“Earlier events were more ICT-heavy with slight Life Science representation at the event. This time, we wanted to feature Life Science companies more prominently”, Ms. Tikanmäki explains.

Oulu Life Science know-how was represented by companies such as SEP Solutions OY, QuietOn, Peili Vision, Movesole Oy and Laturi Corporation.

“Exhibitors quickly found common ground to collaborate and that´s a good thing”, Ms. Tikanmäki says.
