What others say about us

    We've received tremendous support and guidance. With the help from the coaches, we’ve been able to focus on the right things and move rapidly towards our goals.

    Johanna Norrman, It's Re:Leased

    What Sting really did for us was to help us think bigger, be more ambitious and set higher goals. We brought one of the coaches onto our Board, that’s how much we like them.

    Egil Bergenlind, DPOrganizer

    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.

    Michael Arnör, Sellpy
