Thursday 16 November 18:00 – Business & Pleasure

We’ll have some great speakers for you at this event. People like you, who understand what it’s like to come to Sweden and start their lives again from scratch. People helping others to help themselves. People who can tell us what’s happening this winter, and where. Don’t miss it!

Passent El Soury from Innovation Skåne will talk about her experiences in Sweden since arriving here just a few years ago. She’ll explain her new role as Community Manager and will highlight the enterprenurial opportunities and support that Innovation Skåne can offer.

Passent is a good friend of HIC and we look forward to hearing all about her new position!

 

Calle Norling of Integratörerna Helsingborg will talk about his work with several projects aimed at making the integration process easier, including mentorship- and internship programs where the newly arrived (no matter the reason to come) are matched with established Swedes, based on their shared work identity.

Calle is participating in the SoPact Accelerator Program along with HIC, and is busy with some very interesting local projects.

 

We’re delighted to welcome Camilla and Anna of Kvinnokarta, the project literally putting women of Helsingborg on the map! They will talk to us about their free city walks which uncover the input of 10 memorable women into Helsingborg’s history. As a project that evolved out of both study circles and Vision Fund, this follows on very neatly from two of our speakers at the last HIC event.

We’ll also be looking ahead to Swedish traditions around this time of year and giving you the head’s-up for local events and markets which will have you feeling seasonal in no time!

We’ll adding more speakers to this event over the next week, so please check back!

Doors open at 17:30 for refreshments and first speakers will begin at 18:00. Feel free to bring a friend! We’re looking forward to meeting you!
