Whether you're an entrepreneur, venture capitalist or perhaps a journalist, it is difficult to keep up with the pace of a rapidly changing entrepreneurial environment. We want to help you out. That is why we have created this infographic which provides you with a brief overview of the major players in the current ecosystem.
Entrepreneurial clusters are typically populated by many actors, housing everything from venture capitalists, incubators, accelerators, and co-working spaces. Lately, we have also witnessed a more contemporary form of financing through crowdsourced models. By providing the ecosystem necessary to thrive, these clusters act like the nebulae of entrepreneurship, sometimes giving life to new stars.
Because of its importance, dynamic nature and volatility, I and Elias Björnestål decided to take a plunge into the Swedish entrepreneurial ecosystem (with a heavy geographical focus on Stockholm).
While we managed to find some structured information here and there on the internet, we were not able to find anything concrete and up-to-date.
As such, we just wanted to create something structured for us to use internally, as part of our effort to further strengthen our bond to innovation & entrepreneurship.
However, as we progressed, we decided to convert our findings into an infographic to share it with the public. The result is a three-page pdf-file which includes a brief overview of each major player in their respective category (i.e. incubators, accelerators, media, etc.), followed by a more detailed table. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we did!
