    • What is Startup? Startup is a practically oriented training programme that helps you for- mulate and refine your business idea to make sure you have a great foun- dation for starting your company. The programme consists of around ten workshops on key subjects like business models, sales strategies, entry barriers, internationalisation, financing alternatives, leadership and more. The course combines theory with practical application. Experienced entrepreneurs and experts also provide inspiration and help you to refine your idea. By developing your business plan, you will be able to decide whether you are ready to launch or not. At the end of the course, you will have the chance to present your business plan to an exclusive network of people who could prove valuable for you in the future. An award for the “Best Startup Project” will also be announced at the final ceremony. This programme is of- fered free of charge. The only thing you need to invest is your time and commitment.
    • How is the program designed? Sessions are held one evening a week for just over three months. Between meetings, STING’s experienced business coaches give assignments and provide some individual guidance. If you want to go ahead with your idea after the course, you can apply to STING’s Business Lab pre-incubator. For more information about application deadline and program start for the next round of Startup, please visit www.stockholminnovation.com/startup. Who can apply? The programme is aimed at individuals who have an innovative business idea with significant international growth potential. Scalability is an impor- tant criterion. You should also have the drive needed to start a company based on your idea. The programme is offered in Swedish. For this rea- son, one requirement is that you understand Swedish, although express- ing yourself in English during the discussions is fine. We would prefer that your team consists of two to three people and includes both men and women. Eight to ten projects will be accepted into the programme.
