Stockholm is known for its vibrant technology scene. In fact, it’s one of the most profitable and exciting markets. Not only in Sweden but generally in the entire Scandinavia. There are a lot of interesting tech conferences and summits in Sweden, here is my top 10.
I will present it starting from the beginning of the year but the first few words on Stockholm’s tech ecosystem.
Stockholm’s technology and startup scene is growing. In 2016 alone, Stockholm’s hubs, accelerators, and private investors spend $ 1.4 billion, and the ecosystem brought $1.75 billion in exit value. That’s exactly 54% of the total amount of money invested in technology startups in the entire Nordics.
With a large number of respected research institutes like the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Karolinska Institutet (KI), Stockholm University (SU), and Stockholm School of Economics, the ecosystem for innovation is phenomenal. The high-tech sector in Stockholm employs around 100,000 people, representing 40% of the population employed in the entire sector. That’s around 10% of the entire country’s working force. 10% is a large number but it’s still not enough. That’s why Sweden is outsourcing software development services to countries like Poland.
Swetugg. It’s all about software product development in .NET. Human skills, technical skills, new trends and Microsoft’s ecosystem’s updates. Our .NET developers cheer for this event very much.
Stockholm FinTech Week. The 2020 edition takes place in February. The event focuses on FinTech, RegTech, InsurTech, decentralized finance, and AI in all of the above. It’s probably the most specialized FinTech event in Stockholm and entire Sweden. Topics like payments, open banking, cybersecurity, lending and cooperation between startups and corporate investors and companies are the main areas. If you are looking for a software development company, that delivers solutions for FinTech, RegTech, InsurTech or that builds cutting edge software applications, it’s the place to be.
SwitchOn. The 2020 edition is dedicated to the growth of IT, attracting new talents, and streamlining current processes to create an environment that can quickly adapt to the market and industry changes.
Nordic Software Summit. The summit is about software, obviously. CEOs, CTOs, CMOs, and heads of sales will explore challenges and possibilities that come from the world saturated with software solutions.
600 minutes executive IT. The event is focused on shaping the future of IT organizations. Managers and executives welcome forward-thinking and brainstorming sessions. It’s all about C-level executives getting the most inspiration and business motivation as possible.
Webbdagarna Stockholm. It is the leading event and venue for e-commerce and social media managers, marketers, entrepreneurs, communicators and other digital professionals. It’s all about conversion rate optimization, social media, digital communication and web design.
Sweden Demo Day. This event attracts founders, startups and tech, and marketing talents. The 2019 edition brought over 600 companies and more than 3500 entrepreneurs, investors, media reporters, and various industry stakeholders. Organizers are happy that the event is still the first 100% community-driven and owned event.
NextM Stockholm. It’s the biggest marketing and tech event in the Nordics. It’s dedicated to visionaries, innovating thinkers, and products that will challenge the future. It’s about disruptive technologies and like-minded community.
DevSum. It will be the biggest development conference in Sweden. The conference focuses on the latest trends and technologies within the development. Keynote speakers talk about software development and architecture, web development, AI and machine learning, programming languages, cloud solutions, and more. The best software developers in Sweden and from Europe will join that event.
WomenTech. The event promotes diversity in a community of software developers and challenges the traditional model of software product development services. It’s all about equal rights, pay, projects and respect.
The software takes over the business world and tech conferences. Without it, no aspect of today’s professional activity and no project could be fulfilled. Stockholm is interesting especially for us, CSHARK, an IT outsourcing company from Poland. As a software product development company, we know what impact software development, product development and UI/UX design services have on businesses and their challenges.
Stockholm offers a lot of great conferences, both technological and business-oriented, focused on elevating awareness. Software product development in Poland can offer a lot to companies that use Stockholm conferences as a source of contacts and inspiration. Most software development companies in Europe are focused on code – we are focused on your business and challenges, to create the best product for you.
