About Excitera

Excitera is the student driven organization for entrepreneurship at KTH. We are passionate about inspiring and guiding students in how to turn ideas into business! We organize a number of different events, everything from relaxed pubs to challenging competitions and workshops.
The organization was founded in 2000 by Olof Lundström, as a response to the demand of an entrepreneurship society for students at KTH. Throughout the years there have been a lot of different events, for example Excitera Innovation Challenge, Mobile Cup, Startup Pub and also Swedish Game Awards - the largest competition of its kind in the Nordic region. We’ve also had a close connection to KTH Innovation, who works with supporting students and researchers at KTH to commercialize their ideas.
