When I was researching about which university suits me, I used to dig deep into every universities website and explore the opportunities it offers me. While looking through the homepage of KTH, the one thing that attracted my attention was KTH Innovation. I read more about the start-up culture at KTH and Stockholm and found that the city has a nurturing environment for entrepreneurs. This is one of the main reason to move to Stockholm since it aligned with my personal goals of becoming an entrepreneur.
A recent study from Medium.com revealed that 55% of startup founders in Sweden graduated from universities in Stockholm. It states that among the top 60 successful startups in Sweden, KTH tops the list with 24 founders.
I have experienced a great community of entrepreneurs in the past 10 months here in Stockholm. Apart from struggling to start my own venture – PLabs, the mentoring, learning and grinding is nothing less than what I expected. I have had to opportunity to pitch my ideas to the Swedish energy board.
If you are the one looking to take your ideas out of the labs, from moving from great research to business ideas, then Stockholm and KTH are one of the right places to be.
