Digital Days Stockholm, a nonprofit initiative, is kicking off in a week. For four days, a variety of events on topics related to the Internet will take place throughout Stockholm, Sweden. Digital Days Stockholm is gathering all these events under one umbrella. The events fall under a number of themes (such as marketing & advertising and social media) and range in cost (from free and up).
The kickoff will touch base upon why Stockholm is such a great place for IT businesses to set up shop and what’s new in the digital world, with Anna Gissler (CEO of Stockholm Business Region Development) and Magnus Höij (Editor in Chief of Internetworld) speaking.
Then a panel will discuss about the opportunities and challenges that are involved in setting up a digital business. Panel members will also discuss other topics, such as whether Stockholm can compete with Silicon Valley. The panel includes:
- Douglas Roos (Founder and Chairman at Nyheter24 plus dragon in the Swedish version of Dragon’s Den)
- Anders Broberg (Member of the Stockholm IT Region Steering Committee)
- Matthew Finlay (CEO of Rising Media)
- Jonas Homberg (Co-Founder and CEO of JayCut, and one of BusinessWeek’s top list of young entrepreneurs in 2007)
