@WeWork Labs, Malmskillnadsgatan 32 6, 111 51 Stockholm Coach: Ivar Strömberg
Ignite Data-Driven Society on 19 September will match approximately 100 startups with established companies.
"The most valuable input we got was to be customer-focused, constantly test all our hypotheses and minimum viable products. Sting also helped us get pre-seed capital and connect us with investors. Also, it was through Sting that Elsa met the other founders. Sting is great for early-stage companies looking for funding, coaching, business connections or office space. It was definitely an important period for us, of intense and focused attention that provided us with an opportunity to learn at a rapid pace."
"The most valuable thing was getting to know the coaches. We bounced ideas off them even two years after we graduated. The fact that you must explain or justify your thinking and KPI development to someone is incredibly valuable and helped push us forward. Also, it’s super important to have people who can vouch for you, especially in the early stages. Having the backing of Sting made it easier to attract both capital and new team members."
"One take-away from our time at Sting is how important the initial steps are. If you don’t get it right in the beginning it can cost you both time and money and opportunities once you later have to fix it. The most valuable part of being part of Sting was the network and the coaching we received, and having access to a neutral party with entrepreneurial experiences. Someone we could bounce ideas with and who didn’t want to get a good deal out of us, but who were on our side."
“Sting really helped us accelerate our initial launch and go from MVP to first investment round. Today, we are racing to become the most dominant real estate platform in the world, an ambition that we would never have gotten to, had it not been for all inspiring Sting coaches and fellow entrepreneurs.”
"As first-time entrepreneurs, it is invaluable to have a group of coaches – that have actually started companies themselves – to bounce ideas off of and help you find the right way forward for your company and grow faster. By being part of Sting, we met many more potential investors, and also got help applying for grants from Vinnova. Sting provides a fantastic platform on which to start your company in Stockholm!"
“The progress that we’ve made since we joined Sting has been phenomenal. We’re talking progress we might otherwise have done in maybe... never. We’re extremely happy and grateful for the support we’ve received in getting processes in place, finding our key metrics and focusing on sales.”
