Stockholm Startup Ecosystem

The Swedish capital consistently ranks in the top 5 European startup hubs. With big names like Spotify, Skype, and Klarna leading the way in the city, there’s no higher concentration of unicorns outside Silicon Valley.

Fintech and gaming are set to thrive as the ecosystem develops, as are sustainability-oriented startups such as Klimato and multiple plant-based food alternatives.  

Innovation is rife in Stockholm, and founders attract the attention of international investors. The city’s ecosystem is worth $63 billion (compared to a global average of $28.6 billion).

There are many active VC funds in Stockholm, as well as prominent angel investors like Jane Walerud, who invested in Klarna and is a member of the government’s innovation council. Numerous government initiatives encourage entrepreneurship and drive the ecosystem. 

Brilliant Minds is one of the city’s most popular startup events founded by Spotify’s co-founder. It’s a gathering of innovators discussing how they can shape the future. Other initiatives include Nordic Makers, which is a group of individual angel investors who pooled their expertise, networks, and funds to help up-and-coming businesses thrive. 

Stockholm is one to watch and an exciting place to be for entrepreneurs in 2022. 

Reach out to our Stockholm-based mentors if you want a share of their expertise.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
