Startup Sweden

Startup Sweden is a Boot Camp for the most promising digital startups in Sweden. 

Our Boot Camp gives 10 companies the opportunity to expand their networks through contacts with other companies, investors, potential customers and partners. These companies also get practical advice and know-how in business development – from other startups as well as from experts in various fields.

Last but not least, these companies are given the opportunity to meet with private and public investors at Sweden’s biggest demo day for digital enterprises – Sweden Demo Day.
