WORLD-CLASS BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & NETWORKS
As the leading Nordic startup accelerator and incubator, Sting enables talented people to turn their ideas into sustainable businesses. The support we offer includes qualified coaching in business development, a business angel network, a venture capital fund, a recruitment service, and an international network of investors, business contacts and experts. We contribute to the success of Sweden’s future technology companies by helping them to grow and compete internationally, and by generating export revenues for Stockholm. Sting’s vision is to be the best accelerator and incubator in the world by attracting the best innovators and entrepreneurs, and by contributing clear value to successfully build and develop the high-growth companies of the future.
Sting supports promising startups, primarily within ICT, internet/media, cleantech, sustainability, health and life science. We evaluate more than 400 projects annually, but based on a tough screening process we accept only 30 companies per year to our incubator and accelerator programs. Approximately 70 percent of the companies accepted to the programs come from industry, and 30 percent are connected to universities and research institutes.
Sting started in 2002 and has provided business development supports to over 300 innovative startups.
