Launched: The First Ever Landscape of Swedish AI Startups

Startups play an important role in creating innovation and growth, especially within the field of AI. That is why AI Sweden, Ignite Sweden and RISE have launched the first ever curated landscape of Swedish AI startups. 89 startups have been selected using criteria such as their use of AI, scalability, access to and use of data, and the AI skills of their personnel.

This mapping is part of an ongoing European initiative to create a landscape of AI startups in each country. Within the framework of the Swedish-German Innovation Partnership, Sweden will, after Germany, be the second country to provide a curated landscape of their national AI startups.

“This initiative is creating bridges between European countries, enhancing Europe’s capabilities to be innovative, create value for citizens, and compete globally. In fact, startups are a national resource that can be tools for the whole society for the digital transformation,” says Marie Wall, startup expert at the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation.

The landscape will serve as a quality stamp for the selected startups. It also provides important intel and lowers thresholds for the stakeholders within the innovation ecosystem, investors, government, and academia that have an interest in AI startups.

“Being present in this landscape has great potential to serve as a door opener to attract new Swedish and international customers and partners. This will allow us to help even more children to reach their full reading potential and education organizations to drive literacy development in a completely new and data driven way,” says Martin Sjöstrand, founder and CEO, Lexplore.

The landscape has been curated by an evaluation committee with representatives from investors, large companies, academia, startups, and incubators. The next update of the landscape will take place on the 17th of November.
