If you have ever attended an entrepreneurship class or been peeking in on a webinar on innovation you’ve probably stumbled upon a bunch of cheeky start-up terms, abbreviations and actors. VC’s , Angels, CAC, exit-strategy, term-sheet etc and etc, the list can go on for ever but one term which absorbs all these terms into one Erik-Backmanish-superterm is; The startup ecosystem.
This refers to actors such as incubators, business angels, accelerators, investors and others alike. Luckily for us, Stockholm has a great ecosystem where incubators, accelerators, business angels and VC’s are doing nothing else but pitching their latest innovation to each other whilst cruising around on a VOI in someone else’s co-working space.
Klimato has been able to take great advantage of this system. From the creation of our first pitch-deck and being sent to Shanghai by our brave mentors at KTH, to pitch at the Nobel Innovation and Entrepreneurship competition, to being able to test our first beta together with customers through the SPARX program. Lately we’ve spent time in the EIT incubator program, using a European platform to launch the Klimato-app internationally. Of course we’d like to say that our groundbreaking solution to help the food industry tackle climate change is what brought us here, but we also acknowledge the great help and support we have received.
Now as we are sadly saying goodbye to our persistent, energetic, smart and sometimes through-the-roof nuts mentors at KTH, we are happy to continue growing together with STING.
The STING incubator program, voted as the Nr. 1 incubator program in Sweden by Nordic startup awards is run by talented coaches and entrepreneurs with long experience. For us, this path feels natural to find new experimental ways to expand as a company and most importantly, to keep developing solutions to tackle climate change.
