SBT Instruments Co-founders on Forbes 30 Under 30 List

Forbes recently revealed their 2018 picks for the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list. 


We are really excited to announce that the three co-founders of SBT Instruments (Gustav Erik Skands, Christian Vinther Bertelsen, and Frederik Peter Aalund) have been selected for the 30 Under 30 list in the Science & Healthcare category. Forbes describe the honorees as follows:

They may be young, but they are ones for the ages. [...] Our reporters vetted thousands of nominations and polled expert judges to compile the list and ensure that each member, whether a chart-topping musician or founder of a multi-million-dollar e-commerce company, is a leader in his or her industry

At SBT Instruments, we are thrilled to have three honorees on the esteemed 30 Under 30 list. We would like to thank Forbes for selecting us for this honor.

Forbes give the following description of SBT Instruments in which they highlight our successful funding history:

SBT Instruments has developed a real-time bacterial detection device that is relatively cheap, accessible, market-ready and can be used in water, food and environmental testing. They've raised more than €1 million.

In the days follow the announcement, the Danish media also picked up the story (Børsen, Berlingske Business) and featured SBT Instruments' co-founders along with other Danes on Forbes 30 Under 30.
