Current CEO at SUP46 (Start-Up People of Sweden) Jessica Stark has made the decision to leave her role later this year. As the Co-Founder, she will continue to be involved in SUP46´s development, through her position on the board of directors. The recruiting for a replacement has started.

“Jessica has, together with her team, done a fantastic job over the years and made SUP46 to what it is today and strongly contributed to Stockholm's position as a startup city. Jessica has now chosen to step down as CEO but she will remain as a board member and one of the owners. SUP46 has had an incredible development since its start in 2013 and we are now looking for a new leader to refine and develop SUP46´s already very strong platform”, says Mikael Ahlström, Chairman of SUP46.

The startup hub SUP46 offers a world-class ecosystem of investors, advisors and partners to its members giving them competitive advantages. Today the SUP46 community already consists of more than 100 of Sweden’s most promising startups as members and alumni. SUP46 is an open and vibrant meeting place with over 30 000 visitors and 200 events every year. The goal for 2017 is to further expand the member base outside of Stockholm to support even more promising startups from other parts of Sweden to grow and develop faster.

“Ever since SUP46 was in its infancy, as a project in the fall of 2012, I have as co-founder and CEO focused hard on creating, developing and growing the organization to where it is today – the leading startup hub in the Nordics. It has absolutely been the most fun, stimulating and rewarding role I’ve ever had. I have exceeded all my own goals and aspirations for SUP46, and am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished as a team. Now it’s time for me to take the next step in my journey, as I feel ready to take on a new challenge. With the strong platform we have created I confidently look forward to SUP46´s continuing development and fantastic future opportunities”, says Jessica Stark, Co-Founder and CEO at SUP46.

The recruiting for a replacement, to lead SUP46´s continuous journey, has now started. Do you want to accept the challenge, head over to for more information.
