There is a huge amount of support in Helsingborg for people with new business ideas, and a thriving start up community. This is good news for international arrivals, who often find that moving to another country offers them the chance to reinvent themselves and start their own business.
A new initiative called Startup Labs is hosting Open Desk sessions at THINK Open Space on Wednesday mornings, where a representative from SoPact, THINK Accelerate, THINK Open Space or NyföretagarCentrum Skåne Nordväst (New Business Centre) will be available to listen to your idea and coach you over a cup of coffee. You don’t even need a fully-formed idea yet, just the beginnings of one!
We’re delighted to have Emelie Dahlström of SoPact, Anneli Ödén of NyföretagarCentrum Skåne Nordväst, and Jenny Sandberg of THINK Accelerate talking to us about their work with these organisations and Startup Labs.
You’ll be able to pick their brains about setting up a new business or testing your idea to see how far you can take it.
We’ll mix in some “light entertainment” after the break, when we’ll hear from George Jonasson, the project leader for February’s Drömljus festival of light. He’ll talk to us about the spectacular light and sound installations, and exciting, interactive and vibrant activities that will fill Helsingborg from the 9th-18th February. It’s five years since the last Drömljus, so we are really looking forward to it! You can even book workshops and “behind the scenes” seminars, so check out the website as soon as possible!
