FOR TALENTS

Before

  • Make sure you choose your area of expertise when registering yourself to Sweden Demo Day so we can make sure to match you with the right startup
  • You will receive a separate confirmation few weeks before Sweden Demo Day if you get selected for talent scouting

During

  • Every Startup will have a standing table where you will be able to meet with their team or founders
  • You should have the goal to meet all the companies you're interested in and ensure you exchange contact for a future meeting
  • There will be enough time to make acquaintance with the startups during the session, but a detailed meeting has to be booked in the coming days by you
  • Connecting with a startup with your passion for the problem they're trying to solve is more important than matching all the skill requirements for the role

Keep an open mind, everyone has a role to play!
