My love for startups
My love for startups started many years ago when I lived in Jackson Hole Wy and had the pleasure to work with some of the best snowboarders and mountaineers in the world. Their dedication and passion taught me a great deal about teams and achieving the impossible and it is exactly that drive and energy I see in startups! Startup culture in Sweden is currently centered around the big cities and then mainly Stockholm which has a hopping startup scene. However I do strongly believe that it is beneficial to consider other areas than the big city for your startup.
Take the region of Sörmland for instance which in my opinion is a perfect place to launch your fab ideas! Sörmland is in easy reach of Stockholm and we have a huge number of great investors and many of them are part of our regional fund Sörmlandsfonden. I have specifically chosen Sörmland as a base for CreateX because I firmly believe that startups can thrive in our well developed ecosystems. And lastly we have more castles and mansions then any other region so why not launch here and live like a king ( at least for a few nights)
