Is your startup ready for deployment or for a pilot project in a live customer's environment? Or are you seeking customers to validate your concept or product? Sign up for our program and we will get back to you when we have found a matching corporate. 

Q&A Startups

What’s in it for us?

By signing up, you will have the chance to meet established companies who are looking for startups who can help solve their challenges and are interested in meeting you. The first step is to match your startup with the needs of the established companies that have joined the program. If there is a match, this is the opportunity for you to establish a collaboration with one or more potential future customers. 

Who are attending from the corporates?
It’s most often one or two delegates from the corporates attending the Ignite matchmaking, and their titles are Innovation and development managers. If the meeting is a success, you will be booked for meeting number two and meet more people from the corporate with different competences. Then an Ignite process Manager can join to support you. 



What phase should my startup be in? 

Your startup should be looking for one of the following: 

  • A potential customer who can verify your business idea - proof of concept.

  • Help with verifying your final product requirements by a potential customer

  • Pilot testing your solution or product in a customer's environment.

Calendar wise, when will the activities take place? 

The matchmaking events will take place all over Sweden during the program period. You will know if we have scheduled meetings for you about two weeks prior the event. But it's important that you keep your calendar free until then so that we are certain that you can join if we get a match.
