Come together to create new innovations and business models


Most innovations happen outside companies, in collaborations with other sectors and, increasingly, with startups.

Smart Retro is a framework in which multiple companies can come together with other stakeholders to create innovations and experiments on varied themes such as urban services, food, transportation, circular economy and education.

We create an ecosystem for sourcing, choosing, accelerating and testing innovations in a given theme.

The first ever Smart Retro programme was focused on urban services and finished in 2016. Initiated in three the Nordic cities of Lahti, Stockholm and Norway, the programme was aimed at building the missing link between the big players of the built environment and the smartups providing new services, the link between the atoms and the bits, the physical and the digital.
