YourPDi, Your Personal Digitalisation, is a new app that provides an easy, smart and safe way to get in control of, and store your valuable information and documents. Magnus Hedberg, known from TV3´s Lyxfällan, now joins YourPDi in order to expand the app to a broader audience.

The app Your PDi has been founded by Patricia Ingemarsson och Jenny Wuori with the vision to provide a way to easily handle personal documents and other important information. YourPDi offers its users a place for everything and everything in one place – including the receipt for the stolen bike, documents from the renovation, warranties, log-in codes for Netflix, family vaccinations and your homes color scheme.

The information is stored in the cloud and is protected by, among others, Swedish Baffin Bay Networks to prevent eventual cyber attacks.

Magnus Hedberg now joins YourPDi as the company´s ambassador.

– When I heard about YourPDi,  I immediately felt that this is something I want to be part of, says Magnus Hedberg. The app provides easy access to what I need, it doesn’t matter if it is tomorrow or in five years. I see daily in my work how beneficial it is for people to get in control of their documents.

Magnus Hedberg has own experienced of how convenient it is to store information digitally.

– I have super control of my documents, says Magnus Hedberg. Everything is sorted into the right binder and behind the right divider. However, as I don´t carry the binders with me all the time, sometimes I lack access to the information I need at the moment I need it. Yesterday for example, when my daughter was due for a vaccination, I realized her vaccination card was at home and I didn’t know what booster it was time for. A positive side effect of having your documents in order is that you save money. For example we got a new TV, when our old TV´s display gave up, two weeks before the warranty expired.

All information that you store on YourPDi is protected and encrypted in the cloud. No one but you can see what you store.

– So much has happened when it comes to digital safety, stresses Magnus Hedberg. My biggest problem now is what to do with all my empty binders. Not to mention the time I save when I store everything through my mobile, easily available everywhere via the cloud.

– We are very happy to have Magnus joining YourPDi, says Patricia Ingemarsson, co-founder. He is an advocate for order and control, exactly what YourPDi provides and he will be an important ambassador for our service.

“The figures we present here today speak their clear language, the Sting companies  contribute with jobs and export revenues to Sweden,” says Pär Hedberg. We are especially pleased that the companies’ sales growth is strong and we view the doubled company valuation as a receipt that external investors also appreciate the potential of these companies.”

Orexplore behind Swedish digital breakthrough in the mining industry –

The Swedish-Australian company Orexplore has launched the world’s first fully-featured digital drilling cores laboratory – the GeoCore X10. The product, which won a Red Dot Industrial Design Award in 2017, analyzes the element concentrations and minerals contained in a drill core, as well as provides a visualization of the rock’s internal structure in 3D. What previously took weeks of expensive chemical laboratory analysis can now be done while drilling, which will revolutionize both ore exploration and mining.

With Orexplore’s innovative equipment, the world’s geologists get a new and exciting tool for finding ore deposits as well as streamlining existing mines. The opportunity to take a drill core, and immediately see what it contains, is completely groundbreaking. By visually looking at the structure of the rock, geologists can form an idea of how the bedrock has been transformed over time, how minerals are distributed and how valuable the ore body really is.

“In Sweden, we have hundreds of years of mining experience in addition to our skills in technology and IT. With this history, it is perhaps not so strange that the GeoCore X10 was created right here, says Kevin Rebenius, CEO and founder of Orexplore. The entire mining industry, a somewhat conservative industry, is now facing a revolution in digitalization and the use of IT. And Sweden is the country leading the transformation.”

GeoCore X10 is the result of over 20 years of X-ray research, algorithm development and sensor technology. Despite the advanced technology, the goal has been to design a product that is so simple that it can be used by anyone. Moreover, the measurement is non-destructive, which means that you do not need to prepare the drill cores beforehand.

The digital data produced with the equipment can be analyzed by a geologist at the site or on the other side of the globe. By examining multiple drill cores from different holes and different depths, geologists can form an idea of how the bedrock underneath our feet looks and what it contains.

GeoCore X10 is first launched in Australia, in collaboration with the Swick Mining Services Group, and globally later this year.

Orexplore participated in Sting’s incubator program during 2010-2011.

GoFrendly, an app that offers women of all ages an opportunity to create new friendships through accurate and secure matching, has closed an investment round of 3 MSEK. Among the investors are the founder of Apotea, Pär Svärdson, and the former Klarna Manager, Louise Samet. The company will now expand and develop the product further.

The founder team behind GoFrendly, Claudia Gård and Ulrika Lilja, got the idea of ​​the company through their own need to meet new friends. The friendship app targeted exclusively towards women was launched in October 2016. The timing for a social platform where women can meet new friends has proven to be perfect.

“We see a huge need in a market with few players. Now it’s all about running fast and that’s exactly what we’re going to do with the capital injection. We will develop the platform to create more physical meetings and a premium service is also close in time, explains CEO and co-founder Claudia Gård.

The interest in investing in GoFrendly has been great and the team has had to say no to investors. Among the investors are the founder of Apotea, Pär Svärdson, JNE Invest, angel investors like former Klarna Group Product Manager, Louise Samet, and many others. In addition to capital, the investors also contribute with skills and networks, which is invaluable to the team.

“It’s wonderful to see that so many believes in the potential of GoFrendly and are ready to invest,” says founder Ulrika Lilja.

GoFrendly has users between 18 and 82 years and is used extensively around Sweden. GoFrendly has also launched in Oslo with successful results. Today, the app is free and that has been important in order to attract early users. Revenues so far come from ads and partnerships.

“Our goal of the app is to create physical meetings. Being able to offer our users events with partners has proved to be a winning concept. Many brands want to reach a large female audience, both digitally and physically, and we can offer a comprehensive solution,” Ulrika continues.

“We are proud to address the problem of finding new friends and we already know that our service has changed people’s lives – our goal is to make the world a less lonely place,” concludes Claudia.

Sting co-founds the new venture fund Luminar Ventures together with successful business angels

Jacob Key, Founding Partner of Luminar Ventures together with Pär Hedberg, CEO of Sting.

Luminar Ventures today announces a 500 MSEK fund focusing on seed stage technology companies in Sweden. Luminar Ventures has been initiated and co-founded by Sting and and the successful angel investors Magnus Bergman and Jacob Key, who will be the fund’s General Partners.

Luminars’s core investment focus is on scalable digital seed stage companies from Sweden, founded by highly motivated and talented entrepreneurs with a vision to disrupt or transform major industries. The fund is looking to lead larger seed rounds through an average investment of around 10 MSEK, but will also do pre-seed and series A investments.

Founding partners, Magnus Bergman and Jacob Key are both former serial entrepreneurs and active angel investors. Over the last 10 years, Magnus Bergman made over 30 seed investments with a handful of great exits, making Magnus one of the most experienced and successful tech angel investors in Sweden. “With a long background in working with startups we understand the challenges of building global companies. We founded Luminar to share our experience and bridge the gap between the angel and A-round with both financing and active professional support”, said Magnus Bergman, Founding Partner of Luminar Ventures, in a comment to the launch of the fund.

Before founding Luminar Ventures, Jacob Key made close to 20 early stage investments, with 3 successful exits to date. “We are delighted to get started with Luminar Ventures and are already in closed dialogue with a number of promising startups across Sweden. As former entrepreneurs and angel investors, our aim is to be more hands-on in the early growth stage than the general VC and to work closely with the founders of our portfolio companies”, comments Jacob Key, Founding Partner of Luminar Ventures.

Joining the team are also Linda Höglund and Daniel Karsberg. Linda has a background as global CFO at fast scaling unicorns, including Klarna in Europe and Grab in South East Asia. Daniel joins Luminar from his most recent role as Investment Manager at Creathor Venture, where he led Creathor’s Nordic operations.

Sting, the leading startup ecosystem builder in Sweden and operator of one of the most established accelerator programs in the Nordics, is one of the co-founders of Luminar Ventures.

“The initiative to start Luminar Ventures is part of our mission to contribute to a world class eco system for technology startups in Stockholm and Sweden”, comments Pär Hedberg, CEO of Sting. “Luminar is a potential investor in the Sting companies, as well as a potential follow-on investor to the portfolio companies in our Propel Capital. It is however important to note that Sting does not have any exclusivity with the fund and we will of course, as always, encourage the Sting companies to evaluate all relevant financing options, Pär Hedberg continues.

The fund also has a strategic partnership with KTH Holding, which is the holding company of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology – one of the leading technical and engineering universities in Europe. Sting and KTH Holding are both minority owners of the holding company of the fund. They support the fund with a strong deal flow and access to their respective innovation systems and networks. Luminar Ventures has also built an active network of partners throughout Sweden and within several industry verticals to ensure a high and qualitative flow of investment opportunities.

Major investors in Luminar Ventures are the European Investment Fund, through the Strategic Venture Initiative, Saminvest and a number of professional private investors and institutions.

“We see a great interest from startup to join Sting. With the six new companies in this batch we have accepted 17 new startups to Stings Incubate program, and 33 companies in total this year to Sting. This is a record since we started in 2002. Of the six companies, three – Cling, Nordic Weld Assist and Airmee – come from KTH Innovation’s pre-incubtor, with whom we work closely, “says Karin Ruiz, business coach at Sting.

The companies are offered 6 to 18 months tailor-made coaching and have the opportunity to receive SEK 300,000 from Propel Capital, the investment company investing exclusively in Sting companies. New this year is that, in addition to support from Sting’s experienced coaches, the companies also have access to 30 hours that can be used for buying coaching offered by external experts in areas such as SEO / SEM, UX and Conversion Optimization.

One of the new companies is Cling, which earlier this summer launched a service that makes it easy for craftsmen to write quotes and agreements.
– We see a great demand for our service. Since the launch in late July, we have already secured over 100 customers who send their quotes and agreements through the service, ranging from small companies with one employee to larger companies with more than 50 employees. Now we are ready to accelerate and look forward to qualified sparring from the Sting team, says Oskar Andersson, co-founder of Cling.

Sting’s support for startups includes, in addition to individual coaching and opportunity for investment from Propel Capital, access to Sting’s own recruitment service for startups, SUP46, THINGS or H2 locations, and access to Sting’s broad international network of investors, business contacts and experts.

Since the start of 2002, Sting has coached over 200 startups. Among the Sting Incubate companies are Yubico, Videoplaza, Volumental, Watty, Barnabys, Bioservo and MIND Music Labs.

Companies, stores and e-merchants can offer faster and convenient delivery services through Airmee’s API and deliver from the store within minutes. www.airmee.com

Cling is a project tool that simplifies craftsman administration from first customer contact to payment. With the help of Cling, craftsmen can create quotes from simple and professional templates and send agreements that the customer signs with BankID. The idea is to make it easy to get the right information in place, so that craftsmen do not get into unnecessary disagreements and troubles with their customers. cling.se

Elly Pistol raises 3 MSEK

Elly Pistol, the online fashion company dedicated to the digital generation, has closed its first investment round and has raised 3 MSEK for expansion into new markets and expansion of the team. Amongst the investors are JNE Invest and BLCBX Investment Group.

Elly Pistol is a digital street wear brand launched in 2015. The company was founded by Cecilia de Champs with the goal of creating non-seasonal products and that consequently can live much longer than traditional summer / autumn / spring / winter collections.

Many people know Elly Pistol through their bomber jackets that quickly became popular and were frequently seen in social media and on influencers. The design takes place in-house in Stockholm and the sale is done without resellers via Elly Pistol’s own website. Social media is Elly Pistol’s premier communication channel.

– Our target audience is the digital generation that lives as much online as offline. We want to create a community where we together with our fans can develop our collections, shape our brand and promptly receive feedback on our ideas. As more people become aware of the environment and consumerism, I am convinced that our non-seasonal products are right in time, said Cecilia de Champs, CEO and founder.

The new investors complement the Elly Pistol team with experience and network.
– We have grown rapidly organically with very little funding so far, and I am looking forward to further accelerating the expansion rate with our new owners. It has been important for us to make a “smart” round and gain access to new skills and experience from the industry, mainly in e-commerce and online media, says Cecilia de Champs.

– For JNE Invest, Elly Pistol is an investment in a smart, courageous and dynamic fashion company that is absolutely right in time.” Says Niklas Norén, Managing Partner for JNE Invest. Hugo Hågemark, Partner at BLCBX Investment Group, continues – Sales growth is impressive and we are convinced that Elly Pistol’s trip has just begun.
