Tips for small businesses

Offer to you as an incubator company

Life for startups was not without challenges before the effects of the coronavirus crisis hit and the situation is now tough for many smaller companies. Now we want to help build Sweden’s next generation of life science companies strong, for future export revenues and innovation power. Start-up companies of up to four employees will be able to be members of SwedenBIO for an annual fee of 1000 SEK, provided that they are linked to an incubator that is a permanent member of SwedenBIO. In return, the incubator will pay a higher fee than today.

By attending conferences like BIO in the US or SwedenBIO’s own Nordic Life Science Days, you have the opportunity to meet potential and existing business partners. SwedenBIO offers discounts on participation fees to a number of such meetings.
