Stockholm – The city for innovation and new ideas!

Jan 13,2016

Stockholm is the second most prolific tech hub in the world on a per capita basis, behind Silicon Valley. If you played a game on your phone today, listened to music online or video-phoned a friend, chances are you used a Swedish company. Skype was launched in 2003  and has since been followed by Spotify, Candy Crush parent King, Minecraft maker Mojang and the payments service Klarna.  Stockholm is becoming a world leader in technology,” Skype creator Niklas Zennström, who also founded London-based Atomico, said earlier this month at the inaugural Brilliant Minds conference: “We are living in an extraordinary time, and there is no doubt that Sweden is a leader in this proud new world. The dream we had of becoming a tech community 10 to 15 years ago is now becoming a reality.”
