About this event

Funding is the backbone of a strong startup ecosystem and a must-have for accelerating and scaling the startup journey.

Welcome to our fireside chat with Joachim Karlsson, CEO Almi Invest - Sweden's most active startup investment entity.

We discuss, among other things,

- How do you pitch your startup to Almi Invest?

- At what stage does Almi Invest focus on?

- Do you need to have product, traction, or revenue to get funded?

- Do you need other investors in the round? What does a typical round look like?

- What are the selection factors used by Almi Invest to identify scalable startups?

- How does Almi Invest typically work with a funded startup and its team?

- What does a typical exit scenario look like?

- Best investments so far!

- What does Joachim's typical day look like? His journey including CSO at Bisnode? His advice to entrepreneurs?

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
