Sweden’s top investors were gathered at Bryggarsalen earlier today when 14 of Sweden’s most promising tech startups presented at Sting Demo Day. The event is the finale of the Sting Accelerate and Sting Incubate programs, and more than 100 investors were there to meet the entrepreneurs.
The companies that now leave Sting offer solutions in a wide range of industries, from babytech, cleantech and fintech, to influencer marketing, AI and climate-smart food. Since the start in February, the companies have mainly achieved results in the form of new customers, improved products and stronger and expanded teams.
– All companies have accelerated considerably during the program and it is especially great to see a good team that has the ability to utilize the investor networks and the ecosystem that Sting offers. Our team and recruitment services have been used extensively as usual. It’s also fun to see how much it means for startups to sit together – everyone shares and helps solve problems and challenges,” says Ivar Strömberg, business coach at Sting.
Sting Demo Day ended with Lisa Lindvall, founder of The Fit offering mobile 3D body scanner technology, after voting by the audience winning the prize for “Best pitch”.
– The time at Sting has been incredibly intensive and we have accomplished so much in just a few months. Above all, we have refined the product and broadened our network, both in Sweden and the rest of the world. Now we look forward to launching our product fully in the coming weeks, says Lisa Lindvall.
Sting Demo Day is organized twice a year with the aim of giving the contractors the opportunity to present their companies and start relationships with future investors and partners.
