"We wanted to cover the entire Nordic region and were looking for a city to set up HQ. I needed a country that was broad in needs regarding the sectors, but especially one that was open to outsiders coming in and establishing a company. I started doing my benchmarking and research in October 2021 and concluded in February 2022.
I found Sweden to be the most diversified when it comes to different sectors. It has a strong connection with manufacturing but also with e-commerce, gaming, healthcare, and so on. It’s very broad, and we have a lot of experience in all these sectors. Invest Stockholm helped enormously. I was able to contact the team and ask any questions, and they provided me with easy access to information. It was very clear and very open; there was no ambiguity.
Now we’re up and running, and I know I can call the team anytime. However, I am not that dependent on them as they introduced me to so many people that we already have a great network here in Sweden. People are eager to help, especially when they hear our business model. It starts slowly, but once you’re introduced to a group, you’re welcomed in an incredible manner. Everyone is interested. Everyone wants to help. Everyone is eager to listen to what you’re doing and what you want to achieve. It’s amazing."
