Plantagon decides to focus on three locations to build demonstration plants, partly funded by the company itself: Linköping Sweden, Singapore and Shanghai, China. During the development work four different patent families are born. Parallel with this development Plantagon starts to build political support and awareness for the need of sustainable food production in cities. The world´s first Urban Agriculture Summit is successfully organized by Plantagon jointly with the Swedish Embassy in Washington DC. Plantagon becomes the official Swedish solution for Urban Agriculture. Very much energy goes to figuring out the best way to implement the technology on the market as neither traditional growers nor real estate companies are interested. The political support from the cities is enormous, but the business logic is still not there, as expected.
