What others say about us
Sting is competent, they are friendly, and they have the same vision that I do, which is more growth, more healthy companies, and more people who know how to start companies, and contribute to the community.
We're impressed by the quality of the Sting companies and enjoy working closely with them. They’re a key player in the Stockholm early-stage ecosystem.
I have thousands of startups to choose from every year. Through Sting, I get a selection of the most interesting companies that I can follow over time, and then make direct investments in. So far it has been very successful.
