At the helm of the global fintech landscape
Stockholm's position in the fintech scene is a reflection of the coming together of a number of factors. Be it a market which encourages a global reach, a hotbed of talent, a tech-savvy end user market or a supportive infrastructural and regulatory framework, Stockholm has it all.
Stockholm is home to one of the largest and best-known fintech scenes in Europe. It is comprised of banks, startups, scaleups, investors, legal advisors, management consultants and many others. We have 114 banks of various size and specialization, and nearly 400 fintech companies.
Our rise to tech prominence has been coming for decades and interest in fintech in Sweden shows few signs of slowing down. To put it into perspective, fintech companies in the Nordics raised €347 million in investments in 2018 from 86 deals. Of those, Sweden accounts for half of all investments, with €174 million from 39 funding rounds. Widespread adoption of digital financial services in Sweden goes hand in hand with both public and private support for a growing fintech ecosystem. Get in touch and let us help you get connected!
