Welcome to the Unicorn Factory

Stockholm is home to 7 tech companies with valuations over $1 Billion, yet strangely with a population equal to Austin Texas.

Come find out why many are calling Stockholm "The Unicorn Factory" and meet the current and future unicorns growing in this amazing ecosystem.

In 2014 STHLM Tech Fest brought together more than 50 top investor groups, 100 of Stockholm's most exciting startups and 3,000 attendees...

...this year we plan on doubling it.
