    • Society & Culture

Sweden has a reputation as the start-up darling of Europe. The home of Spotify has proven to be a genuine incubator of tech and creative talent, and is now second only to Silicon Valley in its count of ‘unicorn’ startups – those valued at more than 1 billion dollars. Where does this creativity and innovation come from?

Guests:
Maral Kalajian, start-up expert involved in tech incubator Sting and the independent start-up community Startup Grind Stockholm. She is also the director and founder of her own children’s app.
Rasmus Rahm, Acting Executive Director at the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, which works to connect and help educate the city’s entrepreneurial students and academics.
Jane Ruffino, US-born tech columnist based in Stockholm who provides a feminist and more critical perspective on the Swedish start-up scene.
