More info about HBG Business Community:

HBG Business Community is a platform for information on working in Sweden and about the Swedish business community. With integration as a primary focus, we want to create meaningful connections with the intention to establish a professional community that exchanges knowledge, experience and inspiration.

This new edition of HBG Business Community includes some changes. The meetups have been divided into three different concepts: 

TALKS is an opportunity to listen to talks on a particular theme. 

MEET invites the attendants to listen to guest speakers from different companies.

OPEN SESSIONS is an opportunity to discuss and get advice on working in Sweden. Kind of like a speech café!
