10 Startups Ensuring Sweden’s Status As A Tech Powerhouse

Sweden’s tech scene is one of the most exciting on the planet right now. As if giving us The Bridge, Stieg Larsson and flat-pack futons wasn’t enough, trailblazing tech companies from Ericsson to Spotify and Skype have rocketed out of this tiny ice-covered country to become global powerhouses that have helped redefine the very way we listen to music and communicate with each other. That innovation shows no sign of drying up, with Stockholm-based companies like Klarna, Mojang and iZettle attracting multi-million dollar rounds of funding in the past year, making waves in Europe’s e-commerce, gaming and fintech spaces.
