Spotlighting an important area
Johan Höglund, CEO, was delighted to win the prize and hopes it will help draw attention to our need to gain better control over society’s infrastructure.
This prize, just like the Growth Prize we were awarded in 2013, gives us a well-deserved pat on the back and the energy to continue with our mission. We strive to make society’s infrastructure that little bit smarter, and I hope our winning the Golden Mobile puts this important field in the spotlight.
