London Bootcamp – one-week accelerator programme for Swedish Tech

London Bootcamp is collaboration between the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK and the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket). It is a one-week accelerator programme especially designed for Swedish tech businesses looking to build a presence and connection with London and the UK. The programme takes place during London Tech Week, and is open to Swedish tech businesses and start-ups.

The participating businesses get the opportunity to learn from, connect with and meet leading tech experts, successful entrepreneurs and seasoned investors from the tech and financial capital of Europe.

The one-week programme offers a range of dedicated seminars and workshops, on topics ranging from practically setting up in the UK, how to find customers and distributors, to lessons learnt from entrepreneurs already established the UK, and what investors are looking for. Speakers and mentors include senior business professionals, seasoned entrepreneurs and best-in-class field experts.
