Welcome to the UK – an evening for Swedish startups and scaleups looking to expand to the United Kingdom

Join us for an afternoon where we dive into the many opportunities of a UK expansion, from the practical setup and tools for success, to the do’s and don’ts from those who have done it before you. It is also an opportunity to connect with other businesses currently considering the same journey, and to meet an ecosystem that can support you in your next steps. 

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK and EY are proud to bring together and facilitate an exciting group of start- and scaleups with experts in their fields, all gearing up to enable your successful expansion to the UK.
