#MalmöFTW

Malmö & Minc in two recent articles about the startup scene as a place to be and to look at.

Aron Solomon writes in BetaKit as one of five tops to the Canadian tech scene to look elsewhere than to Silicon Valley and points to Sweden and Malmö:

I’m convinced that as we imagine the future of incubation and acceleration, we need to look to exemplars such as Minc in Malmö. [..] Minc is not only the region’s pre-eminent co-working space, they’ve re-imagined the relationship between startup and institution.

TransferWise lists Malmö as one of top 8 emerging tech hubs in the world to pay attention to, along Dublin, Hong Kong and Tel Aviv. They write:

Once an industrial town transformed into a nucleus of young innovation, Malmö has attracted startups such as live video-streaming service Bambuser, stock photography platform Foap and micro-donation tool Flattr."

How pretty cool isn't that for a town like Malmö.

We have a thriving and rising startup community and with the recently launched #MalmoStartups and its community group initiated by Joel Larsson it can only get better and stronger. I'm happy and proud to be apart of it all.
