Curation throwback: Stockholm companies provide insights on innovation...and the countryside

This week we cast our minds back to April, when our host companies where getting more accustomed to working from home amid coronavirus, as well as giving us insights into how they help employees move here, and what makes Stockholm tick for talent.

Homer hires from outside the EU

After Easter we had the pleasure of handing over the Move to Stockholm Twitter account to Homer, an app that helps you organise all the important documentation pertaining to your home.

Homer was in the process of hiring talent from outside the EU at the time, and had a wealth of practical advice to impart.

Thanks for the threads, Homer! 

Not just another Brick in the wall

Brick keeps your devices charged and my goodness were they full of energy when they assumed control of the account!

Brick is a relative newcomer to the Stockholm startup scene but has already built up an impressive client base. CTO Tyler D'Aurio had this to say.

UX lead Lea Schulz wrote a thread about the ubiquity of design in the Swedish capital and how it fuels innovation. 

Netlight takes us into the countryside

We were delighted to welcome Netlight to the digital hot seat in early May.  

They really whetted our appetite for the outdoors with a string of tweets extolling the virutes of getting out of the home office environment for a while. 

Netlight is also one of the 100+ companies that call themselves A Woman's Place. (Shameless plug alert: follow @stockholmawomansplace on Instagram!)

Every day, they handed the account over to a different employee and we got to meet some interesting people who shared their thoughts on Stockholm with us. 

Feel free to scroll back for more of Netlight's takes on the archipelago, clever apartment design and how handstands can keep the blood flowing for remote workers!


Thanks for reading! We'll be back soon with more Twitter dispatches from the Stockholm tech scene.
