Thursday 9 July 15:30 – Financial Support for Small Businesses during COVID-19

Welcome to our third online event, when you’ll be able to hear about financial and other types of support for small businesses at this time.

We’re delighted to announce our guest speaker, Rabie Salem, the CEO of Contentor AB, one of the partners in the project Stöd till Företag (Support for Business). Rabie will talk about Contentor’s collaboration in this project, which assists international entrepreneurs to access information about COVID-19 business measures in different languages. He’ll also share his personal journey and experience of the topic and give a practical perspective of the measures in place.

Rabie came to Sweden as a six-year old of Palestinian descent and has had an exciting career in economy, marketing, newspapers and football, in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments. The notion of access to information for the foreign-born community is close to his heart, as he tells us:

“I am both proud and honored that we can be a part of this important project. We got the opportunity to collaborate with partners to help companies and make important information and support available. This is an important topic. When I grew up, many times I had to help my family and others to translate and understand messages from authorities. I’m happy that Contentor together with Setterwalls and Skandia can play a meaningful and important role in a difficult situation. Truly inspiring!”

Thursday 18 October 18:30 – Meet Matkooperativet!

It’s a real pleasure to meet a social entrepreneur who has been able to transform her passion into a popular business! This is what Hanna Bergström, founder of Matkooperativet (food cooperative) has done in Helsingborg. The farmers’ markets she visited while living in New York inspired her to source fresh food from local suppliers in Skåne, seeking out organic produce wherever possible. She’s been able to share her interest with the local community by forming a thriving consumer co-operative.

Since starting the association in February 2017 and using two crowd-funding campaigns to develop the store, public interest has rocketed. Join us for a tour of the shop, where you can see and taste some of the produce available and learn about sustainable initiatives in place such as refilling your own containers of toiletries or household liquids. You’ll also find out how to join the co-operative, member discounts and volunteering opportunities. We hope to have a few of the suppliers on hand to talk about their produce, too!

Program

18:30 – 19:30 Presentation and tour of Matkooperativet shop

Address: Möllegränden 4A, 252 23 Helsingborg

If you haven’t been to this beautiful museum across the Sound in Denmark, it’s definitely time for a visit. Considered the most important museum of modern art in Northern Europe, Louisiana is famous for its innovative look at contemporary art and stunning surroundings. Its permanent collection holds over 3000 works and 8-12 special exhibitions are held every year.

We’ll meet at Knutpunkten and travel together, with everyone responsible for purchasing their own tickets for travel and museum entry. We recommend buying the combined return travel and museum entrance ticket at the Scandlines ticket desk (275 SEK for adults, see link for child & over 65s’ discount). We’ve chosen the bus route from Helsingör as it takes us directly to Louisiana.

You’re free to look at the exhibits by yourself or with other HIC guests, and to return at the time that suits you best. We hope to meet at the cafe for lunch, too! We’ll decide on the day, depending on the wishes of the group.
