BUSINESS FORUM & SPEAKERS
Friday, June 29
This one-day forum will focus on the underlying and most important aspects that have enabled Sweden and also Norway to be so successful in the area of Game Changing Innovation and Global Trends that often start in Scandinavia. Why is Stockholm among the fastest growing capitals in Europe and what makes it the Silicon Valley of Europe?
Over recent years Stockholm has produced several very successful “Startups” and we will examine the “enablers” that must be in place for a Startup to become a successful global company and possibly even a “Unicorn”.
Speakers from some of these companies, from government, universities, investors and from current startups will give insight into how and why Stockholm has been so successful and how this might be duplicated in other cities/countries
Maria Rankka, CEO of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce will introduce a range of speakers from Swedish industry and Innovation who share insights on Innovation with us.
Sweden’s capital city spreads out over 14 islands in Lake Mälaren and looks out proudly to the Baltic Sea to the east, through the Stockholm archipelago. Her grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 year-old history beautifully.
Stockholm is a city of great contrasts, where trends within music, design, fashion, and world famous technology are born. This is also a capital with a rich history, exciting architecture, museums, castles and an old town that dates from the 13th century. Stockholm is host to lots of trendy bars and world-class restaurants, sitting side by side with historic cafés and cozy local restaurants. It is great for shopping with modern galleries, exclusive boutiques, as well as small and unique stores.
Stockholm is both urban and close to nature. Being built on 14 islands, where lake and sea meet, the water is always present. There are many parks (such as the Royal Djurgården) and green areas within the city, and just outside the city you’ll find easily accessible nature, with forests, lakes, and national parks. From the central parts of Stockholm, you can jump on a boat and be in the Stockholm archipelago within minutes, all year around. This a child friendly city so bring the family along and we will help you to discover this amazing city at the lightest and brightest time of the year.
