About this content
The manufacturing of tomorrow. Industry 4.0. Making needed things. Helping established SMEs on the next stage of their growth and transformation. Offering not only capital but also expertise, an ecosystem of support. Value creation. A way through the disruptive challenges of uncertain times. These themes describe Oak Universe as an investment firm, and as Founder and Managing Director, I’m delighted to be involved in actualizing such an exciting proposition.
The Nordic region, comprising of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland for the purpose of this paper, is currently leading the way in the European manufacturing sector in terms of both digital-innovation and green- innovation. The region hosts an impressive number of firms, big and small, that are forging the way in innovation, and leading by example in the global market. To continue with this push, the uptake of cutting-edge technologies is key to ensure that all firms in this region can keep the pace with the increasing demand for smart solutions, to pressing and increasingly growing environmental problems and to maintain the push for competitiveness in Nordic manufacturing.
