Swedish Startup Space

Founders Panel at Uppstart May 22nd

Written by on May 28

Did you miss the second edition of Uppstart last week? Don’t worry, here is our recap of the event.

Founders panel

The guests on the stage ranged from the Mayor(!) of Uppsala, Fredrik Ahlstedt, to Lukas Sveilis aka the coolest kid in Stockholm. But the main event of the night was the founders panel, which consisted of Arvid Jansson from Vint, Carl Holmquist from Freespee, and Siavash Ghorbani from Tictail. Watch the on stage interview with them in the video below.

Google as a new sponsor

Google Cloud Platform was announced as a sponsor for Uppstart, and in a way also for the Uppsala startup community as a whole. Google is offering all start-ups from #uppsalatech a 500 dollar voucher to get starting with their cloud platform, and also a chance to win a further 20,000 dollar voucher for startups that qualify.

Selfie contest by selfiebooth.me

On the first event a few months ago there was a ‘selfie contest’. This time Jason Dainter, the host of Uppstart, took it a step further as he had arranged a ‘selfie booth’, powered by selfiebooth.me, which is pretty cool. And the winner? Johannes from 46elks, who was pitching on stage last time.

The next Uppstart event will be around September and will be announced shortly, but Jason Dainter lets us know that if you sign up at uppstart.co you will be kept informed
