Testimonials from our startups & corporate partners

“THINGS started the eBazaar events during the spring 2020 when market conditions changed dramatically. I am happy to see that THINGS so quickly could come up with this new concept and make it a success, and that THINGS remains committed to supporting relationships between startups/scaleups and the large corporates. Cooperating with THINGS in various forms has been instrumental for the success of Imagimob.”

Anders HardebringCEO and Co-Founder

“Being a new company with limited resources, limited time, and limited everything, you need to find friends and partners very quickly. For us, being part of the THINGS family and getting access to their vast network was crucial to get off the ground. And THINGS has been a great partner ever since, actually putting me in contact with someone that could potentially be a huge opportunity for us, as late as yesterday!”

THINGS has become the epicenter for Swedish Industrial IoT. It’s not just a place for fraternizing, but a place where you meet people from startups and corporations with a genuine intention of doing business that unleashes the true potential of this tectonic shift we’re going through as everything becomes connected and autonomously smart

Jon LindénFounder & CEOEkkono

Exxentric spent only a year at THINGS, but what an important year it was! At the time, we were only two people working full time for the company. With limited financial resources, cost was an important factor in the choice of office space. Already growing fast, we were eagerly searching for both talent and relevant new business contacts. THINGS luckily gave access to both, at an affordable membership fee.”

Erik LindbergCEOExxentric

“Speed and technology innovation is why it is so important for us be close to and work with startups. I expect that we will have much more collaborations going forward with startup companies.”

Catharina TunbergGeneral Manager, Shared TechnologiesAssa Abloy

Harri SavolainenExecutive Vice PresidentNCC

“As a corporate partner with THINGS, we have only positive feelings. We have [made] a lot of contacts with many companies, not only just startups but also other industrial companies that we are working together with.”

“THINGS is really important for us [as] being a people company we rely on finding partners and especially with the startup community to be able to drive innovation in the facility management area. It’s really important to be a part of this and be able to find those companies that can add value to our business.”
