Heliospectra AB taking part in Swedish Cleantech international tour

Heliospectra is one of the eight selected Swedish companies taking part in this year’s Swedish Cleantech Tour, travelling to London, Zürich and Boston.

The hand-picked Swedish companies, identified as Sweden’s most innovative within environmental technology, will meet international investors and industry stakeholders. The goal is to eventually contribute toward solving global environmental challenges.

The tour is being arranged for the second time by the business incubators STING (Stockholm Innovation & Growth) and LEAD (LiU Entrepreneurship and Development) after being launched successfully in 2013.

“The Swedish Cleantech Tour is a great opportunity for Heliospectra to prove itself internationally. After a successful share issue and to coincide with the planned listing, we are now undertaking a major international marketing campaign so this forum is ideal for us. To be one of the selected companies is also a major acknowledgement of Heliospectra’s business concept and that we can actually contribute to better food, reduced transport, lower energy consumption and so on, thereby reducing the negative environmental impact,” says Staffan Hillberg, CEO at Heliospectra.

At the end of May, Heliospectra launched its new patented LX60 lighting system, which is more efficient, greener and cheaper compared to earlier products. According to Heliospectra’s calculations, the LX60 generates almost 50 per cent more light on the plants compared with the predecessor, L4A. The company has also managed to lower the weight from 13 kg to 8 kg.

“We really have the wind in our sails now. The level of interest in LX60 is huge, both nationally and internationally. Our share issue was over subscribed and the tremendous interest has enabled an additional private placement to qualified investors totalling a further SEK 18.2 m, approximately. Altogether, this has resulted in overall issued capital of around SEK 40.9,” says Staffan Hillberg.
