04 Apr Sweden’s 33 hottest tech companies in 2017
Stockholm, April 4, 2017
Tonight, for the tenth year in a row, the winners of 33-listan were presented at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. The work to find tomorrow’s most promising tech companies started in January when the jury of 33-listan began touring the country. The jury was on the lookout for companies that offered an innovative product or service with great international potential – innovations that could become a game changer within the tech industry.
“It’s encouraging to see that Sweden has founded so many innovative companies and that previous list winners have managed to succeed at such high levels. Several of them like Spotify have reached an annual turnover of hundreds of millions – while other companies like Mojang have been acquired for billions”, says Kalle Wiklund, journalist at Ny Teknik and member of the jury.
33-listan is based on over 200 nominations from companies all over Sweden, from Malmö in the South to Skellefteå in the North.
Going on tour gives us a better opportunity to find the hidden gems out there, and it also means that every region gets a chance to be represented on the list”, says Wiklund.
This year, Stockholm dominated the list with 14 companies, but apart from that, the list showed good national spread as several regions made their way onto the list. Among these, 4 companies came from Malmö and 4 from Gothenburg.
“Sweden is a country with several global corporations that all started with an innovative idea. There’s a genuine interest for technology here and we have many talented people that deserves extra attention”, Wiklund concludes.
