    What others say about us

      Sting helped us get pre-seed capital and connect us with investors. It was definitely an important period for us of intense and focused work that made us learn at a rapid pace.

      Elsa Bernadotte, Karma

      It’s super important to have people who can vouch for you. Having the backing of Sting made it easier to attract both capital and new team members.

      Mikael Arnör, Sellpy

      Having someone with entrepreneurial experience to bounce ideas with was great. Someone who didn't just want to get a good deal out of us, but who were on our side.

      Christopher Barnekow, Barnebys
