SUP46 Startup People of Sweden is one of the world’s leading startup hotspots, as Spotify, King, Mojang, and Skype are just a few of the countless global mega successes that have come out of Sweden. Even so, its startup community long felt the absence of a centrally located meeting place and a natural forum for likeminded startup people. SUP46 gathers only the most exciting and innovative digital startups, backed by top VCs, business angels, corporates, and accelerator partners. The result is a startup community of the highest standard. Since the launch in October 2013 the community has seen what network and knowledge sharing can do for boosting international growth.
