Talouselämä, Nordic region’s largest weekly business magazine, has named Solar Foods as one of the most promising startup companies in Finland in 2020. This marks the second year in a row that Solar Foods makes the list.

The top 10 businesses chosen by Talouselämä are all true leaders in their field. Some have already entered a more advanced stage, some are still in their product development phase, but all share a common target for rapid internationalisation and growth. Each company also possesses a type of innovation and business model that the jury believe to have the potential to become a global market leader in its field.

Selection of the list is made by a panel of experts together with the editorial staff of Talouselämä. The focus this year was on the versatility of the hottest start-up industry. The Talouselämä jury praised the participants, which have risen to new levels in ambition and know-how. Among the participants there were new, more creative earnings models, high-tech, and innovative, highly scalable service companies.

“Solar Foods has a big vision for solving the problem of global food production. The product has an endless number of applications. The company has launched a pilot plant, and has progressed in collaborations with large industrial players,” commented the jury.

Talouselämä selected the most promising startup companies now for the ninth time.
