Many consider Stockholm one of the leading startup capitals in the Nordics – and one of the top in the world. Some are even calling it the “second Silicon Valley”. It’s no surprise considering Skype, Klarna, King and Mojang all went from small startups to billion dollar juggernauts. Not only that, investment has been pouring in at record levels in the past couple of years; in 2016, more than $1.4 billion was invested.
Undoubtedly, the city’s high concentration of programmers, non-hierarchical culture and immense public support are huge contributing factors to the startup scene’s incredible growth.
Startup Guide is a book series filled with advice, how to’s, case studies, inspiration and a fresh + real perspective of how to start a business in a city. It is based on the idea of a traditional guidebook, a book you carry along with you when you’re traveling to a new place to start up a project or business. Why do you need it? To find secret spots, to know where to go, who to talk to and what not to miss – all recommended by the people who know the city the best: THE LOCALS!
