CAPITAL OF TECH: The state and future potential of Stockholm as a tech hub

09 februari 2024

Stockholm, Regeringsgatan 29, 111 53 Stockholm

A discussion with industry and political leaders on Stockholm's future as a tech hub

Stockholm’s footprint in the global tech scene is strong, with a wide roster of unicorns to its name including world leading brands such as Spotify and Klarna. In terms of unicorns per capita, few cities can compete with Stockholm, but how is it faring in the current financial climate, and what challenges lie ahead? The tech ecosystem of Stockholm is key to fostering wider innovation, so what can we do to ensure its continued success in what is a highly competitive global landscape, fighting for talent, ideas and platforms? Join us on February 9th as we discuss the current state and potential of Stockholm as a centre for tech.

A thriving tech industry ecosystem is key to the growth potential of Stockholm at large. We are gathering the greatest minds from the industry, alongside the wider business community, investors, academia and politics to dive into the potential of a thriving tech city.

This event is a part of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce’s tech series “Capital of Tech” aimed at both showcasing the value and opportunity of a thriving tech community and to help facilitate a stronger ecosystem in the capital region. How did Stockholm become a unicorn factory – and what will it take to continue growing?
