Six reasons why Sweden is a great place to grow your startup

Why Sweden?


Sweden has a highly educated and talented population with a strong design and engineering culture. No surprise then that Swedes are ‘early adopters’ of new technology.

Open & Collaborative Atmosphere

Whether you want to go for a coffee to chat about ideas, get feedback on your product or need an intro to an investor. Connecting to good people here is quick and easy.

Pay it Forward

The region has a large number of successful entrepreneurs that want to help the next generation succeed through mentoring, angel investing and generally being friendly to startups 🙂

Gender Equality

It’s not a new concept here, Sweden ranks as one of the world’s most gender-egalitarian countries, based on a firm belief that men and women should share power and influence equally. Sweden is very pro women and pro family. Dating back to the 1970’s women’s rights have been a cornerstone of society, making Sweden an ideal place for female founders to start their companies.

Work-Life Balance

Sweden has some of the highest productivity coupled with lowest working hours, Swedes get stuff done and have family time. With a high standard of services and cheap rent, Sweden always ranks highly on the quality of life index … and it’s not because of the weather!

Unicorn Farm

The Nordics are hot right now, with 33% of Europe’s billion dollar exits.  Investors have a close eye on the Nordics, on the look out for the next unicorns.

What you'll get

To run a startup is an adventure. We want to be a part of that adventure and help out as much as we can. We are specialised in helping early stage startups build their first prototypes, and get the first important users. At the end of the program you will be ready to talk to investors to take your startup to the next level. To be a part of THINK doesn't cost you anything and we don't take an equity stake in your company. So, what's the catch? We want you to work smart and make a change. That's it. We are located in the buzzing Greater Copenhagen region, one of the most creative places in Europe with a strong startup scene. One hour from the largest international airport in the Nordics, you're always close to the global markets. We're proud to have our office at Mindpark, one of Sweden's most creative and friendly co-working spaces.
