Minesto has been awarded a place in the Business Acceleration Programme Southeast Asia (BAPSEA) joint program by the Swedish Energy Agency (SEA) and Business Sweden.

BAPSEA, which commences mid-March, is aimed at supporting Swedish companies with innovative solutions in energy and sustainability to enter the Southeast Asian market.

Through the 18-month program, Minesto will have access to resources, guidance, and networking opportunities with industry leaders, government officials, and potential partners in Southeast Asia.

“Being a part of the BAPSEA programme strengthens our ability to accelerate market progression in Southeast Asia. It also signals that our technology is regarded as a valuable contribution to the energy transition in one of the most challenging parts of the world, given the current dependence on fossil fuels,” said Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto.
