Stena Line Propeller Prize

Win 100.000 Sek

Since the 1960’s, Stena Line has been a symbol for driving force and motion. It is found naturally in our business and characterize our ambition to cross borders and develop transport of goods and passengers – but also good ideas. Stena Line has been operating the ferry line between Karlskrona–Gdynia for more than twenty years and has experienced a lot of ideas and innovations in the Baltic region along the way.

We want to encourage new companies and partnerships that enrich and develop the business climate in our region. Therefore, we have instituted the Stena Line Propeller Prize, an entrepreneur prize granted annually to young businesses. We have named the price from the Latin word propellare; “driving force” which naturally comes to mind.
