Entrepreneur-centered support

During 2020 we arranged 2 190 private meetings for entrepreneurs - with investors (48%), potential customers or partners (48%) and media (4%).

Throughout the year we directly helped a total of 729 Swedish startups, ranging from early-stage to scaleups looking to expand to new markets.

Out of the 43 startups that participated in our bootcamps, 60% have at least one non-white and / or non-male founder.

About Startup Sweden

Startup Sweden was created in 2016 to support Swedish startups on a national level. It is a program initiated by, and run within, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket).

We provide entrepreneur-centered support from the earliest stages to scaleups. Our activities and initiatives focus on the entrepreneurs' need – providing them with knowledge, network and tools to succeed.
