Thursday, June 17, 2021

The latest version of the initiative is led by AI Sweden and Ignite Sweden and now features 166 AI startups.

The latest version of the Swedish AI Startup Landscape, an initiative led by AI Sweden and
Ignite Sweden, has launched with the addition of 23 new AI startups. The platform now
features a total of 166 quality AI startups.

"Startups are key in creating innovation and growth, and play a crucial role in accelerating the use of AI. Sweden and Europe must have the ambition to be at the forefront of AI development. Promoting great AI startups as part of the Swedish AI Startup Landscape is a fantastic way to strengthen collaboration across the ecosystem," says Katarina Fégeant, Startup Program Manager at AI Sweden.

The Swedish AI Startup Landscape is part of the European AI Startup Landscape, which today features 500+ AI startups from France, Germany and Sweden.

We need to support AI startups all over Europe in growing their businesses. For that, it is necessary to build a strong ecosystem of AI companies across the continent. This initiative aims to give promising companies a visible platform to showcase their solutions and technologies, not only in Sweden but also to corporations, SMEs, investors and stakeholders throughout the continent,” says Stina Lantz, Program Manager at Ignite Sweden.

Being a part of the Swedish AI Startup landscape provides us with a broader platform to increase our reach internationally. We hope to expand our network and are looking forward to new exciting collaborations within the field of AI and Machine learning,” says Jonas Thyni, CEO of Tvinn, one of the 23 startups recently added to the database.

Curated by a committee of AI experts

A committee with representatives from investors, large companies, academia, startups, and incubators has been responsible for the evaluation of the new startups in the landscape. They have been using a range of selection criteria including, their use of AI, scalability, access to and use of data, and their personnel’s AI skills.

We have been part of the thriving tech startup scene in Sweden for a few years now, and are keen for organizations and key stakeholders outside Sweden to have access to all the exciting things being created here. Mapping the Swedish AI landscape is a great contribution to spreading that information,” says Susanna Dillenbeck, Commercial Partnerships Manager at Sting incubator alumni Furhat Robotics.
These new startups develop solutions for a wide range of sectors including education, energy, forestry, healthcare, HR, industry, legal, logistics and retail using AI technology. 

The goal of SeaPattern is to provide AI-based decision support to companies in the blue economy. We are sure that the landscape will play a big role in helping us towards our goals with their guidance and network,” says Anders Brodin, CEO at the LEAD incubator company. 

According to Deep Forest’s Levi Farrand, this is a great opportunity to present their autonomous drones and 3D AI to new customers, potential investors and collaborative partners within the deeptech field.

We expect to connect and collaborate with a strong consortium of AI-focused customers, investors, and startups working together towards the maturation and commercialization of AI technology in Sweden and globally,” says the CEO of the Uppsala Innovation Center startup.
