1.1Rivus Batteries, which focuses on developing organic flow batteries for large-scale energy storage, has had a busy start to the year. Not only have they expanded their team with highly qualified new recruits, but they also recently won Vinnova's pitch competition during The Tech Arena alongside inspiring start-up peers Proligreen AB and GREEN14 - and were also selected as one of the 'Most Promising Energy Innovators of 2024' of the Free Electrons program!

The Tech Arena aims to advance tech and entrepreneurship and give entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their company's products and services in a public arena.
