THINGS is the #1 deep tech and innovation hub in Sweden focusing on industry, infrastructure, utilities and mobility. Some 100 members, 50/50 deep tech companies and established companies, from Tokyo to Silicon Valley and a range of carefully selected international partners enable THINGS to provide truly international services for its members including challenges, acceleration programs, co-pilots and match-making. THINGS also arrange open events including its eBazaar™, eXplore™ and Get-On-Top-Of™ series. Our common interest is a commitment to disruptive innovation and technologies, which are driving the digital transformation. Our vision is “to transform innovation in small companies into large scale value creation through collaboration with corporates”. We do this by nurturing and bringing together startups and corporates in order to catalyse the domestic and global development of innovative products and services. Our current focus areas are Internet of Things, Automation, Robotics, Mobility, Machine Learning/AI and Energy. We regularly host a packed calendar of events in our 100 people capacity event space.
The value of THINGS is the sum of energy, activity and skill among the people visiting and working in the house. Founded in 2015, our extended startup community consists of ca. 100 member and alumni companies and an additional 600+ Swedish relevant startups. What makes THINGS unique is that we don’t take any equity from our startup members, the unparalleled prototyping and testing capabilities on offer and the networking opportunities with leading Swedish industry corporates. We work simultaneously with large corporates formally as Main partners and Enterprise Circle partners but also welcome other curious corporates who recognize the speed of technological innovation and the importance of active collaboration in order to stay competitive in the digital transformation landscape.
You are welcome to visit us in our busy 100m2 lounge which is always filled with ad-hoc meetings and interesting discussions.
