- If you have an idea that can make the world a better place and are privileged enough to be part of KTH; KTH Innovation and its pre-incubator program is the place to go. You’ll be constantly supported by high-end talent in every dimension possible to bring your idea to reality under the conditions and pace that fits your life.

The best thing about the program is how solution-oriented all the KTH Innovation staff is. Whenever I come to them with a doubt or a problem, they are always super helpful in trying to find the best way possible to support and guide me.

"The easiest way to appreciate something is to imagine what it would be like if you didn't have it, and I can't imagine us getting anywhere if we haven't had this opportunity to be part of KTH Innovation."

"Being in an environment with other entrepreneurs and feel that "I'm a part of this" is great. That's really important when you're a startup. You have a small team and work a lot on your own."

- Hiba Adem, founder of DYAMO

"In the program, we mix with experienced business people, young entrepreneurs, scientists and others working on their own ideas. It doesn’t matter where you come from, we are all facing the same issues and challenges."
