Our work recently earned us a spot on the 2023 Norrsken Impact/100, a list of the world’s most promising impact startups selected by the Norrsken Foundation and its partners. This recognition further validates the strength and vision of our leadership and the ability of our Molten Oxide Electrolysis technology to transform metals production for a more sustainable future. Boston Metal was nominated by The Engine, our key investment partner for over two years, and was chosen out of 700+ nominees this year.
Boston Metal was celebrated amid an audience of founders, investors and business and policy leaders at Stockholm Impact Week on September 11-14, an annual Summit hosted by Norrsken and the City of Stockholm focused on enabling solutions to the critical issues of our time.
This award builds on our many great achievements in the last year and adds momentum to our mission. We recently closed our $262 million Series C funding round, further expanding our diverse investor syndicate .
