We believe we do this better since we are a team of entrepreneurs who have battle scars from our journeys of creating and scaling innovations. The network and community we have also allows us to extend the core team with experts that can help solve most of your challenges. Whether you're an established corporation or a fast-growing scaleup, join the likes of SEB, Stronghold, Readly & others and let us support you move towards continuous innovation.

Epicenter Accelerate – Where startups becomes scaleups

Innovation with impact happens when there is an attitude, supported by a vision and a clear strategy. At Epicenter Stockholm we focus on building an ecosystem to get the best conditions for both large corps, scaleups and startups to innovate with impact alongside each other. We believe that a key component of doing so is to dare to provide support and help for startups without a clear path or, even a set strategy, for how to build a commercial business on them. We are convinced that if you have a mindset of helping them on their conditions, and the patience to see what comes out on the other side, that is the best way to support a startup and create ”innovation with impact”. We call it Unconditional Love, and try to look at it almost like parenthood, the more you give the more you get. In order to do so we partner up with organizations with an equal mindset, to really make a different for selected startups in our various Accelerate programs. Microsoft for Startups & K-Startup Center is two of our bespoke partners within Epicenter Accelerate.

Company Building & Ventures

We build new ventures with our partners. We do this either with hybrid teams of intrapreneurs and us, or purely with our network of founders. We ideate, test and then co-invest based on a joint vision. While our customers typically offer IP, insights, market knowledge & act as the first customer for the venture, we add the team and support the growth of the entity as active co-founders.
