STOCKHOLM June 2, 2020 – The Techarena Challenge 2020 has named CabinAir one of the 50 leading companies of the future in the Nordic region. Stockholm-based CabinAir makes advanced air purification solutions for automobiles.
The event aims to promote innovation and entrepreneurship and to give company builders the opportunity to show off on a national stage. “We are very pleased to receive this honor,” says CabinAir CEO Daniel Hagström. “Healthy air for drivers and passenger is an important new frontier in wellness.

Some 450 companies entered the competition. The selection means that CabinAir is eligible to compete for the Audience Award, Social Impact Award, Business Industry prize and more during the Techarena Summit in Stockholm on November 13.
“We are constantly experiencing the joy of innovation as we challenge conventional thinking and we are dedicated to deliver solutions that contribute to the health and wellbeing of drivers and passengers everywhere,” Hagström says. “We bring you healthy air for the ride. And the journey has only begun!”
The entrants have been evaluated by an expert jury, with a focus on scalability and sustainability with well-defined growth opportunities.
"This year's final field is one of the strongest so far in terms of both breadth and quality. It is clear that Sweden and the Nordic region are a breeding ground for exceptional entrepreneurs and companies. Many of the companies have already gained a foothold internationally and created a strong position for further expansion," says Omid Ekhlasi, founder and competition manager for the Techarena Challenge.
