5 - 6 September

In the past 3 years the number of startup investments in Stockholm has grown from 3 per month to 33 per month. Likewise, STHLM TECH FEST has grown  faster than anyone could imagine. 

Every startup founder, investor, designer, developer, and journalist comes together to share, be inspired and meet  the whole startup ecosystem, and welcome visitors from 20+ countries.

This year STHLM TECH FEST adds a special 2nd full day called SOLUTIONS where 6,000 tech entreprenuers and investors will join with leading policy makers, foundations, NGOs, in an unprecedented event to showcase and inspire solutions to the UN Global Goals.
