The application period for this year’s Bonnier Accelerator program is now finished. Those entrepreneurs chosen to participate will be announced on June 12 by the jury.

“The jury has a challenging task ahead of it, the quality of the applications is incredibly high. You can see that the start-up scene in Stockholm has continued to develop since last year – it just keeps getting better,”says Elisabeth Palombo, who runs the Bonnier Accelerator program.

Entrepreneurs from Sweden and the U.S. dominate, but startups from India, England, Poland, Uganda and the Netherlands have also applied.

“It’s both exciting and a nice surprise that we had such a broad range of applicants” says Palombo. “It will make for an exciting fall.”
