Sting Bioeconomy joins the Deep tech hub

The Sting Bioeconomy incubator joined the Deep tech hub, THINGS, recently to create more growth opportunities, improve their visibility and increase accessibility in Stockholm. The THINGS membership also provides the incubator’s startups, currently Drinor, Bright Day Graphene, Wood Tube, MeCovers, Melker of Sweden and GreenWood,with office space and meeting facilities. The membership gives Sting Bioeconomy networking opportunities amongst both THINGS startup members and corporate partners.

“By being at THINGS, we gain new opportunities to develop our business to becoming an international and recognizable hub. We already have a presence in a few places but having a physical hub in Stockholm makes us more accessible. In addition, THINGS offer an environment conducive for meetings and building new networks, something we see great value in,” said STING Bioeconomy CEO Victor Isaksen.

Stockholm is home to more than one fourth of Sweden’s businesses and, despite advances in digital communication, there is a need to meet people face to face when conducting business. Thanks to successful startups like iZettle and Spotify, Stockholm is fast becoming a global tech hub with a thriving investor network and a buzzing startup ecosystem.

“Our main task at THINGS is to help the startups who are with us find the right contacts, to help establish the business through everything we offer. One of the main reasons’ startups, including those from other parts of Sweden like Ekkono Solutions and MTEK, are attracted to THINGS is our partnerships with enterprises”concluded THINGS CEO Linda Krondahl.

More information on THINGS membership is available here.


THINGS is the industry focused deep tech and innovation hub in Sweden, located on the The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) campus. Our vision is to transform innovation in small companies into large scale value creation through collaboration with corporates. Our current focus areas are Internet of Things, Automation, Robotics, Machine Learning/AI, Mobility and Energy. We are housed within a 2,000m2 co-working space for startups, connected to an extended community of close corporate partners, including some of the most successful and innovative export companies in Sweden.
