“The latest stop in our series of global Hot Topics events took us to Stockholm, Sweden. Although we knew it was a thriving tech ecosystem, we were struck by the range of exciting companies that are currently being built. In this edition of our publication we are able to showcase a select few of these companies and provide an insight into why Stockholm is such a hotbed for tech start-ups.”
I had the pleasure of contributing a guest post to the latest edition of Hot Topics – which focused in on the buzzing Stockholm startup scene. It’s a great read generally, and features talks/articles by Sebastian Siemiatkowski (Klarna CEO), Hjalmar Winbladh (Wrapp CEO), Fredrik Cassel (GP at Creandum, Carl Waldekranz (Tictail CEO), Niklas Agevik (Instabridge CEO) and Jacob de Geer (iZettle CEO).
I wrote a piece entitled ‘Swedish Startups: Something in the Water?’ and explored why Sweden seems to continue to pump out quality tech businesses.
