Experienced serial entrepreneur joins Sting

Sting strengthens its team and recruits Krim Talia, a successful serial entrepreneur and experienced investor. He is the co-founder of several successful companies in multiple industries, including Nanologica AB (publ. listed), Exeger AB, Depalma Work Wear and Zibetto Espresso Bars Inc. in NYC.

In addition to the list of tech companies, Krim is the founder and sole owner of 3TInvest, one of Sweden’s most active seed round Investors with a portfolio of almost 30 companies. By also being an investor, he has valuable insights and perspectives from both sides of the startup world.

– I invest in companies with a massive transformative purpose, excellent teams, and global potential, mainly in the health and deep tech areas. I am looking for companies with a positive social impact – that is important to me; it drives my decision-making and motivates me to work hard.

Krim Talia

Krim’s original connection to Sting goes back to 2004. As founder of nanotechnology startup Nanologica, he won one of the company’s first capital injections – 100 000 SEK – in an innovation competition organized by Sting. Since then, Krim and Pär Hedberg, founder and CEO of Sting, have stayed in touch.  

− Sting runs a great business, with an important mission. I have been part of the startup scene for a long time and am happy about the opportunity to give back and contribute to new companies’ growth and development. The startup world is very exciting and I can hopefully share some valuable experiences from my time in it.

Krim, a big fan of martial arts and the 2020 European champion in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, has expertise in startup financing, negotiations and sales.

– I have a decent eye for spotting talent and business potential, and a black belt in dreaming big. I learned a lot about the challenges involved in building a research-based materials company as the CEO of Nanologica for seven years. Navigating uncertainty and exploring a large and undefined space of potential application areas in several sectors, Nanologica later gave birth to spinouts in different industries, such as pharmaceutical development, solar cells and MedTech.

Meet Krim on May 20th

Want to discuss your startup, test your pitch, or get input on a challenge you’re facing? Book a free meeting on May 20th with one of our coaches to discuss your questions and challenges.

Krim has also served as Vice President Health and Life Science at RISE – Research Institutes of Sweden, and he has completed the Impact Investing Program at Oxford University.

− With Krim’s extensive experience, both as an entrepreneur and investor, we will be able to intensify our support to accelerate the Sting companies’ development. He brings expertise in both the deeptech and life science areas as well as in how to transform research into a successful startup, which many of our startups can benefit from.

Pär Hedberg, CEO and founder of Sting

Krim holds a PhD from the Stockholm School of Economics. After finishing his PhD, he held the position of Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Economics at Harvard University.

Sting has coached more than 330 startups since 2002, of which 70 percent continue to develop and grow today. Together, all Sting companies have sales of more than SEK 3.6 billion and they have created over 3300 jobs.

Co-living startup Allihoop aims globally, raises SEK 7.5 million and opens 300 homes in 2021

Co-living startup Allihoop has closed an investment round of SEK 7.5 million. Among the investors are serial entrepreneur Houman Ashrafzadeh, private investor Simon Josefsson, and the newly started VC PropTech Farm as lead investor. Startup generator Antler is also increasing its current investment in the company.

Allihoop offers co-living as a service to ex-pats and young talent in Stockholm. Co-living is a community-based form of housing, where members have their own studio and access to common areas that are shared with others. The service is all-inclusive and includes furniture, cleaning and wifi. In the spring, Allihoop will release its community app, which acts as a combined network engine and onboarding platform for members.

– We want to solve part of a large, complex problem. Hundreds of thousands are looking for a nice place to live in Stockholm. It is a big barrier for recruiters who want to attract international talent. At the same time, properties are unused and not being developed to meet the new needs. We turn them into space-efficient homes with shared areas where people meet. It is a win-win-win for property owners, tenants and the city.

Milad Barosen, CEO and Co-founder of Allihoop, with a background as an architect and city planner

Gothenburg-based PropTech Farm started in March 2021 and already has five holdings in its portfolio. Behind the investment company are Fredrik Bergman, founder of Diakrit, and Linus Björk, former Sales Director at Collector. Investors include the founder of Aros Bostad, Samir Taha, and Mikael Wintzell from Wellstreet.

– Allihoop’s business model, its strong management team and technical platform paint us at PropTech Farm a very positive picture of how Allihoop will develop and succeed. Through our network, in both Europe and Southeast Asia, we can accelerate technology development and contribute to faster global expansion.

Fredrik Bergman, CEO of PropTech Farm

Allihoop was founded in 2020 and has been fully booked since the start. Today, there are two active co-living homes in Stockholm, one in Midsommarkransen and one on Lidingö. In August, 68 homes will be opened in Spånga, and additional homes will be launched in Stockholm in the autumn of 2021. Continued product development as well as expansion is the focus of the investment.

– Allihoop is in an exciting growth phase! With PropTech Farm behind us, we can create an even better customer experience and tenfold our capacity this year. In 2021, we welcome 300 new tenants in Stockholm, and then the goal is to expand both in Sweden and internationally. We want to open another 500 homes in the Nordic region in 2022. Urbanization is a global challenge that requires new flexible forms of housing. We are proud to be able to participate in and drive that development.

Three new, exciting companies join Sting

Implement AI models in an afternoon, create memorable webinar experiences and reduce costs for work-related health issues. These are the offers of the three new companies that have been accepted to Sting’s award-winning Incubate program. Now they kick off a one-year acceleration journey together with Sting’s experienced coaches and 20+ other Sting companies.

– Demand is starting to pile up and we are entering a growth phase now. We think Sting can be of huge value in powering this journey with an extensive network and tons of experience, says Jonathan Rintala, co-founder of Univid.

The companies that are admitted to Sting represent less than 10 percent of all applicants. The selected startups can receive an investment of SEK 500,000 from Propel Capital, Sting’s investment company and Sweden’s most active private seed investors.

In addition to the investment itself, the companies also have direct access to the 40 business angels behind Propel Capital, as well as their networks.

– When you run as fast as we do, it’s easy to leave some aspects of company building behind. We hope that the wide range of coaches at Sting will help us pick up steam in some of those areas and accelerate us on our mission to facilitate companies to adopt AI rapidly. We are honoured to join Sting at this stage of our journey! The possibilities presented by their offering seem endless, says Viktor Alm, co-founder and CEO at Labelf AI.

Univid delivers Almedalsveckan Play 2021

The latest challenger on the digital event scene, Univid, will deliver the digital platform where all events are presented during this year’s Almedalen Week – one of the world’s largest democratic meeting places.

During the pandemic, the need for digital event platforms has increased at a record pace. A rapidly rising star is Univid, a startup founded at KTH. The company has grown quickly during the Corona crisis, and now it is announced that they have been selected to deliver the platform for Almedalsveckan Play 2021, which this year will be conducted in a digital format for four days, 4-7 July.

We see that this year’s Almedalen Week will be an accessible and democratic event where everyone with an interest in democracy and social issues can participate. This was important when we were procuring a supplier for our play service, that the service is easy for everyone to use.

Elin Nysten, sub-project manager at Almedalen Week

The initial idea with Univid was to make teaching more interactive, but when the world changed and went digital, they realized that their solution had greater potential. Since then, they have worked with some of the world’s largest companies.

 – Our strength is to create interactive and personal events. The Univid platform should be simple, intuitive and it should feel fun to explore new events. We are really looking forward to creating a fantastic Almedalen Week in digital together with Region Gotland.

During Almedalen Week, in addition to the Play service, Univid will offer the opportunity for the organizers to stream or hold webinars directly via Univid’s platform and take part in all Univid’s functions.

Datia wants to help private individuals invest sustainably

Today, Datia is launched, the app that wants to help private individuals invest sustainably. “Sustainability and returns need not be opposites,” says Juan Manuel Serruya, co-founder and CEO of Datia.

Manne Larsson och Juan Manuel Serruya, founders of Datia

A study from the World Nature Fund shows that Swedish equity funds have invested over SEK 37 billion in the 200 companies with the highest carbon dioxide emissions in the world, and 70 percent of the equity funds invest in oil and coal companies.

– Most small-scale savers have no idea what kind of company their money is being invested in. Many make an effort to change to a more sustainable lifestyle, but savings are often forgotten. Placing your money in sustainable alternatives is one of the most powerful choices you can make to reduce your climate footprint, says Manne Larsson, co-founder and COO of Datia.

With the help of Datia, individuals can easily see how their shares and funds affect the environment through parameters such as carbon dioxide emissions, water use and waste. Users can also see how their savings affect society through information about, for example, gender equality, working conditions and compliance with human rights.

– 80 percent of all Swedes own funds in addition to their premium pension. Today, it is incredibly complex and difficult to understand how we choose to place our savings money on society and the planet. We want to make it easy for everyone to make financially wise decisions without having to tamper with their values, says Manne Larsson.

Behind the service are Manne Larsson and Juan Manuel Serruya. Manne previously worked as an investor at EQT Ventures and Juan most recently came from Spotify, where he was an engineering manager at the New York office.

– A common misunderstanding is that returns and sustainability are opposites, so it doesn’t have to be. There are several studies that show that companies that outperform in sustainability also perform better financially, says Juan Manuel Serruya, co-founder and CEO of Datia.

About Datia
Datia helps you invest sustainably and in line with your values. With the Datia app you can easily see how equities and funds affect the environment and society through parameters such as carbon dioxide emissions, water use and gender equality. Datia helps you find investment opportunities that have a positive impact on the world.
