The moment you have attended your 1st start-up event at SUP46 (Start-up people of Sweden) or any of the other amazing start-up hubs here, you will find yourself being absolutely excited. Promised! But that’s just the start. After 3 months and dozens of events, I’m still flashed every time I meet new entrepreneurs and hear new amazing ideas.

Still wonder why Stockholm is a great place for Start-Ups? It’s one of the cities with the highest amount of companies that actually make it. Here some examples:
So, come visit Stockholm and get infected with the innovation virus!
