This year will see a new feature when things are turned around and a number of Investors get to pitch for a panel of entrepreneurs! Moderated by Tyler Crowley, host of STHLM Tech Meetup, these investors will pitch: Erik Byrenius, Founder Online Pizza (business angel), Kerstin Cooley, CEO Moor (Family Office), Staffan Helgesson, General partner Creandum (Venture Capital) and Miriam Grut Norrby, Investment Manager Schibsted Growth (Corporate Venture).
In the Entrepreneurs panel we find one of the EIT ICT Labs candidates for the EIT Awards, Volumental’s CEO Caroline Walerud. In November 2012, she co-founded Volumental with three computer vision experts at KTH. She topped 2013’s Supertalent list in Sweden (previous winners include Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify and Stina Honkamaa, CEO Google Sweden). Other interesting entrepreneurs in the panel are Johan Attby, CEO of Fishbrain, ranked one of the most promising early stage companies in Europe, and Niklas Agevik, CEO and co-founder of Instabridge, a startup that helps users be automatically connected to wifi wherever they are.
