Launch of Block Block, the Nordic region’s first co-working space for blockchain
The start-up scene in Stockholm continues to boom. Gaming, Fintech, Foodtech and Blockchain are hot discussion topics at almost every event and business lunch in Stockholm. In order for Sweden to become a leader in the next digital revolution, Blockchain, the Nordic region’s first dedicated co-working space for block-chain companies, Block Block, is now opening in Stockholm.
At Linnegatan 89, Block Block is launching after the summer. Initiative takers are Cofound.it and Embassy House. Sting is also participating as a content partner. The aim is to gather various skills within Blockchain under one roof to build internationally competitive companies faster.
“We move into attractive premises on Linnégatan 89, where FOA laid the foundation for Swedish computer history in the 50’s. We will officially open the first of September but a few companies have already moved in”, says Anders Nilsson at Embassy House, one of the founders of Block Block.
“A comprehensive initiative is needed in this area and we want to take the lead. The purpose is to create a place that is open to everyone interested in Blockchain and those who want to learn more about the possibilities in this area, says Jens Frid at Cofound.it and continues: “The competence is here, as well as the curiosity to develop new solutions and companies. Now it is important to address the area and make sure that more people begin to build the new digital infrastructure.”
“We are passionate about helping these blockchain entrepreneurs, going from idea to reality quickly and efficiently. Together we with the founders of Block Block, we will run one of our programs, Test Drive, in the fall, with specific focus on early stage startups within blockchain and artificial intelligence. With the continued need for digital transition, new fast-paced companies are breaking ground,” says Jonas Lindqvist, business coach at Sting, who will lead the Test Drive Blockchain program.
At Cofound.it we match blockchain businesses with the essential resources for success. We believe that the global economy should be open to all entrepreneurs, no matter who they are or where they are from. In 2017 when we began our journey, we supported blockchain entrepreneurs to launch ICOs; we’ve now expanded our services to post-funding startups and have a full menu of resources from advisors, to investors to sector experts. Our services and tools offer the support needed to help turn today’s blockchain visions into tomorrow’s reality.
