Minister of Enterprise, Annie Lööf, test drives jDome in Washington DC!

jDome is in Washington DC for the next stop on the Innovative Sweden tour! The exhibition is held at House of Sweden, and jDome will display a driving scenario in VBS2, a tactical training software from our new partner, Bohemia Interactive Simulations.

We have had packed scheme and we have met possible partners and investors during the inauguration of the Embassy's new public diplomacy theme "Innovation and Education," on March 1st and 2nd.

Participating companies from the "Innovate Sweden" exhibit (to be displayed in the House of Sweden event center) are invited to attend the inauguration ceremony on the evening of March 1st as well as a seminar focusing on young entrepreneurs on March 2nd. Sweden's Minister for Enterprise, Annie Lööf, will participate and speak at both events. jDome had a chance to meet with the Minister and she did a test drive in the jDome, and she was quite good at it!

Later on a few entrepreneurs were invited to attend a luncheon with Minister Annie Lööf at the Swedish Embassy. Other prominent guests at the luncheon that I got the chance to speak and display the jDome to was Dan-Åke Enstedt, Executive Vice President at SAAB (not the cars ;-), who are heavy over here in the defense industry, and also Jonathan Miller, Vice President of Volvo.

From left to right in the picture with entrepreneurs from the luncheon with Minister Annie Lööf in the middle: Cecilia Ohlauson, I-Tech, Cecilia Hertz, Umbilical Design,  John Nilsson, jDome and Mattias Tyrberg, Saplo.

I would like to thank Inger Envall and Birgitta Tennander at the Swedish Institute for getting us here and especially Maja Persson at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for such a great program!

As the exhibition is open for the next two months, please visit House of Sweden in Washington DC and take a test drive in the jDome yourself!
