Are you one of the great Swedish startups using AI technology to work towards a better future? Previously there was no platform to showcase and connect these great innovations, with not only each other, but also early investors and potential customers. Without this many fail to discover the benefits of AI due to their lack of expertise.
This is why AI Sweden, Ignite Sweden and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden joined forces to create the Swedish AI Startup Landscape with great startups from all over the country! This database features quality AI startups and gives promising companies like yours a visible platform to showcase your solutions and technology. It also makes it easier for corporations, SMEs, investors and stakeholders, among others, to access AI partners they can trust.
The landscape opens new horizons for startups while also contributing to the application of AI in Sweden. A win-win for both startups and the country!
The Swedish landscape is part of the European AI Startup Landscape that today features 900+ AI startups from France, Germany, Norway, The Netherlands and Sweden.
Only startups founded and with headquarters in Sweden, registered as limited companies (“aktiebolag”) and no older than 10 years (or that pivoted their core business model to AI less than 10 years ago) can be part of the landscape.
The evaluation committee will also evaluate the following AI-specific criteria:
A scalable product or service that is not consultancy-based
A minimum of two Full Time Equivalents (FTEs)
A minimum of one FTE with AI competence or documented relationship with experts at a university
AI at their core, exhibit a significant usage of AI or have access to data sets
AI Sweden is the Swedish National Center for applied Artificial Intelligence, supported by the Swedish government and the public and private sectors across the country. The mission is to increase the use of AI for the benefit of our society, Swedish competitiveness, and for everyone living in Sweden.
To achieve this, AI Sweden runs projects of national interest together with partners in areas such as information-driven healthcare, decentralized AI, edge learning in space, and language models for the Swedish language. Moreover, we are building talent programs and provide courses and resources for driving organizational change. By utilizing our Data Factory, our partners can access and share data, as well as leverage computing power and storage capacity for their AI projects.
