  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.

  5. 5. SOME REFERENCES FROM PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS: PROGRAMME INSTRUCTORS CONTACT ”It was a brilliant idea to apply to Startup, not just because we were voted the best startup project, but because the train- ing programme completely changed the way we look at our innovation. The training we received in public speaking was also very valuable. Even though I’m used to giving presentations at research confer- ences, communicating a business idea is something else entirely.” Christer Ericsson, founder of Liquid Biopsy ”We had a business idea we wanted to develop, so Startup was the perfect programme for us. The course maintained an incredibly high standard and the coaches had solid experience. It was also a lot of fun to hear other people’s stories – both those of guest speakers and of the other participants.” Anna Wiberg, Innventia Raoul Stubbe, the director of Startup, is a business coach at the STING business incu- bator where he helps innovative companies become international growth companies more quickly. Raoul has previously been involved in starting up and establishing a venture capital- financed international export company that now has 90 employees. In other words, he has personally been through the entire star- tup process – from thinking like a researcher to thinking like an entrepreneur and businessman. Raoul previously worked on contract-based research projects for Swedish industry at the Acreo research institute. Gustav Notander and Donnie SC Lygonis are also programme instructors. Both are business coaches at KTH Innovation. ”It was a brilliant idea to apply to Startup, not just because we were voted the best startup project, but because the train- ing programme completely changed the way we look at our innovation. ”We had a business idea we wanted to develop, so Startup was the perfect programme for us.
