A boutique event for investors and startups

Small and curated:  Sting Day is an exclusive, invitation-only event for 400 carefully selected guests. You don’t have to search for the relevant people – everyone you want to meet is in one room.

  • 60 selected startups from all over Sweden.
  • 200 investors from 15 countries, including senior level representatives from the major VCs as well as experienced angel investors. 

Not a commercial event: Part of the secret behind Sting Day is that it is not a commercial event . Since we’re not selling tickets, we can make sure that only the most promising startups and relevant investors come, providing top-level networking.

The day will feature entertaining, insightful speakers as well as attention-grabbing pitches from startups. You will also be able to book meetings in advance with your favorite startups. And of course there will be dinner, drinks and music to round up a great day!

We look forward to seeing you in Stockholm on the 17th of October!
