Welcome to the perfect place to boost your knowledge about start-up companies! The purpose of Stockholm Startup Guide is to help young entrepreneurs by gathering all information needed in one place. If you toying with the idea of starting your own company this is the place to start, and Stockholm is the place to do it. The capital of Sweden is currently one of the hottest start-up cities in the world, and it has even been nicknamed the “Unicorn Factory”. The nickname derives from the large number of highly valued tech companies founded in Stockholm, of which several are valued to over 1 billion dollars. You’ve probably heard of Spotify, Klarna, Skype and King?

But first thing’s first: what is a start-up? There are a number of answers to this question, but a simple way of defining the concept is as

“a newly established business that seeks to design a scalable and repeatable business model”

The term start-up gained popularity around the year of 2000 when a lot of companies begun to establish their businesses online. This might be one of the reasons why a lot of people often view start-ups as restrictively technical companies – which isn’t true at all. The only limitation is your own imagination.



We’ve gathered some examples of different organizations that can help you in the process of creating your own company. You can find them below.
