Meet Filip, Our New Project Manager for International Collaborations

Our team continues to grow and now Filip Tideman has joined Ignite to help Swedish startups and scaleups connect with international business opportunities.

After discovering Ignite by accident in 2018, Filip is now excited to join the team and foster new international business opportunities for startups and enhance corporate sustainability. 

“I accidentally walked into a big room full of energy with people having seemingly engaging conversations, and a moment later being informed I had walked into Ignite’s matchmaking session. Little did I know that three years later I would be part of the very team that made that magic happen!”

Filip brings valuable experience from both Sweden and abroad. “I worked close to three years within the Swedish innovation ecosystem as a project manager at Johanneberg Science Park and most recently as a product owner at a Berlin-based startup where I coordinated a small product team.” 

He continues, “Before that I’ve been a part of founding two startups, and from that experience, I understand the fundamental impact that Ignite’s offering can have on a startup’s journey.”

This range of experience will help Filip in his new role focusing primarily on supporting Swedish startups and scaleups reach beyond Sweden’s borders to share their innovative technologies and services internationally.

“Sweden is a small country, and it’s really important for Swedish startups to think globally from day one to really make an impact. We do have great startups and innovators but if they never reach beyond our own borders, it doesn’t matter how much of a sustainable impact they may have. So to be a part of accelerating the reach of Swedish startups is something I feel honored to be entrusted with, and that I really look forward to working with.”
