Tech/ICT

A breeding ground for tech billionaires

Stockholm is home to one of Europe’s most important tech communities and some of its fastest growing startups. The region has a strong engineering heritage where entrepreneurs think globally from day one and benefit from tech infrastructure investments. Add a population of tech-savvy early adopters and you get a perfect test market for new ICT products and services.

Stockholm’s tech scene has developed over decades into what today is a world-class, mature startup hub. Good technical and business schools, a critical mass of people eager to start their own businesses, events and meet-ups, co-working spaces, a supportive government, angel investors and VCs, the talent needed to turn ideas into viable businesses – it’s all in place and working in favor of the region’s entrepreneurs. Another success factor often cited is the fact that Stockholm’s start-ups can call on a number of industry veterans for advice on how to scale a high-growth Internet business.
