The #1 deep tech and innovation hub for industry oriented startups in Sweden

Sebastian DesandFounder & CEOIngrid Cloud

“MTEK Industry has been able to grow our customer base substantially during our time as members of THINGS. Thanks to the great collaboration with THINGS, all the events and the networking, we have successfully entered into and executed upon several businesses with major corporations.”

Mattias AnderssonFounderMTEK Industry

“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.”
