Welcome to #gbgtechweek!

Do you want to know more about the Gothenburg startup community?
Do you want to work or invest in a startup?
Or do you want to take your startup to the next level?

Attend #gbgtechweek - 1st - 7th of May 2017

#gbgtechweek strives to make Gothenburg one of the best tech communities in the world! During one week, several diverse and inspiring events, covering the full range from tech to business, is hosted for the public in Gothenburg.

BTW, all events are open to everyone and free of charge!

2017

This year we introduce Create, Launch, Scale!

In order to create a better flow we decided to group the events in different sections of the week. In the beginning of the week, during the Create section, most events are all about how to get started with your startup or idea. Maybe you have an idea but do not know what steps to begin with, or maybe you just want to be a part of creating something from scratch, then this part of the week is for you!

During the middle of the week, the Launch section, the events will target you who is already started with your startup. How do you take the next steps? How do you get your startup ready for an investment? Or maybe you want to join a bit more stable startup, which still is in an early stage.

The last part of the week, the Scale section, we aim to target you who are ready to do some scaling. You are raising an investment round, or maybe looking for that big collaboration with a major actor, or maybe you are looking to join a startup that are on their way to revolutionize the world!

Of course all events will be open for anyone, no matter in which stage you or your startup are within!

- It is free to organize an event during #gbgtechweek.
- The #gbgtechweek organization do not have any sponsors, in order to avoid being bias. We do however collaborate with the city of Gothenburg.
- All events must be in English as well as free and open for any one to attend/apply to.

We want to improve the conditions for entrepreneurs and startups in Gothenburg to become and remain competitive.
