Ericsson is offering entrepreneurs an opportunity to be considered for a venture capital investment
As part of the STHLM Tech Fest taking place 4-5 September, Ericsson is offering entrepreneurs an opportunity to be considered for a venture capital investment and technology incubation through the Ericsson Garage global network.
Ericsson Garage is collaborating with Capital A Partners (CAP A), and its Nordic partner seed fund, Butterfly Ventures, to launch the Startup Challenge 2017.
Ericsson Garage is an in-house incubator that explores opportunities to develop tangible prototypes in new areas together with partners.
The problems up for tackling this year are around how technology can empower smart, sustainable transport for 7.5 billion citizens in the future; how we can address IoT related data privacy, identity management and security in a smart city; and how sensors, robotics and AI can make small and medium manufacturers smart and sustainable.
Interested parties are required to submit their applications before 23 August.
Finalists will face a ‘Dragon's Den' of Tanya Marvin Horowitz, co-founder and managing partner, CAP A Partner, Butterfly Ventures, Börje Ekholm, President and CEO of Ericsson and Ville Heikkenin, Partner, Butterfly Ventures.
