Sting Sting gathers 20 years of experience in a free online course for future entrepreneurs Sting’s latest initiative to nurture future entrepreneurs and attract talent to Stockholm is now being launched: Sting Startup Academy. Sting’s latest initiative to nurture future entrepreneurs and attract talent to Stockholm is now being launched: Sting Startup Academy. “The idea behind Sting has always been to contribute to the development of Stockholm as a leading startup hub and create a world-class community for tech companies wanting to grow and make a difference. With Sting Startup Academy, we continue to do just that, by helping entrepreneurs in the making get started with their ideas,” says Pär Hedberg, CEO and founder of Sting. Sting Startup Academy, a collaboration between learning platform and Sting alumni company Learnster, is aimed at individuals who are curious about the startup scene, perhaps have an idea and entrepreneurial dream, or are interested in working for a tech startup. The fundamental value of the course is Sting’s combined experience from having helped over 400 startups develop into sustainable growth companies while highlighting the Nordic way of building a business. “In the Nordics and in Sweden, we have a slightly different approach to building companies than in many other parts of the world. That is something we want to highlight in Startup Academy and take advantage of as a strong brand in a tech nation whilst sharing our collective experience. We also see this as an opportunity to reach a broader spectrum nationally and internationally,” proceeds Pär Hedberg. In the Sting Startup Academy, the user is guided by the Sting coaches and well-known profiles such as Jessica Schultz, Partner at Northzone and co-founder of Hello Fresh, Magnus Nilsson, Investor and co-founder of iZettle, and Lisa Ericsson, head of KTH Innovation. In 5 hours, you get a thorough overview of topics such as ‘how to test your business idea’, ‘how to get your first customer’, ‘how to build a winning team’, ‘how to succeed in sales’, and ‘how to finance its startup’. “We are immensely proud that Sting chose Learnster’s learning platform to deliver such a unique project of value. At Learnster we are passionate about sharing knowledge and entrepreneurship. As our own startup journey began at Sting, we can relate to Startup Academy’s target group. Sting’s support for young companies is immeasurable. Therefore, it feels especially good to now get to give back. To come full circle, so to speak,” says Mikael Larsson, CEO at Learnster.
