The Ignite Mission

At Ignite Sweden we have a mission; to make it easier for the Swedish startups to find their first large customer so they can grow their business. There is always a startup out there that can help the private and public sectors innovate and solve their numerous challenges. But they cannot always find each other.

Ignite Sweden is a non-profit program that aims to establish tighter bonds between our vibrant
startup scene, established companies and public organizations so they can initiate commercial

How do we do that? We match the right startup with the right person in the right organization
according to their needs and challenges, and we facilitate their first meeting. Prior to this meeting, we give them the right support so that their conversation can lead to business partnerships.
