Connected Business by Sweden

Swedish leadership within digitalisation and innovation will be showcased at Digital Enterprise Show 2017 – the digital business world congress. Sweden is the invited Country Partner whose representation is organised by the Swedish Trade and Invest Council (Business Sweden) and the Embassy of Sweden in Spain. We will be present under Connected Business by Sweden bringing innovation, pointing out the drivers behind its digital journey, and showcase examples – for real.

Sweden is one of the most innovative countries in the world, ranked second in most statistics. According to British magazine Wired, Sweden is the most digitally connected economy worldwide.

Digitalization is key to keep up competitiveness and attractiveness, and to stay an interesting business partner, regardless if you are a company, a public institution or a country. The Swedish success story is driven by a climate that fosters the innovations of tomorrow. Proof of this is found in many companies, some of them present at DES 2017. Main partners are ABB and Ericsson and together with other excellent examples such as Telenor Connexion, Aptilo Networks, Bambwa, CombiQ, Evothings Labs, H&D Wireless, Imagimob, Infracontrol, LumenRadio, Näktergal, Springworks, Things and WOK-World of Knowledge, they all contribute to digital business with great innovative solutions.

In addition, The Swedish Institute brings AReality that will allow you to discover Swedish Innovations through Augmented Reality. Innovations from the past will be visible to the naked eye. Innovations that revolutionize the future will be visualized through HoloLens technology.

At the Masterminds Congress, Magnus Melander (IoT guru, advisor and evangelist of THINGS Stockholm) will, together with speakers, inspire by highlighting real examples of Sweden´s success story and innovative leadership. This includes the drivers of today´s digitalization of the business sector e.g. LPWAN, large enterprise meeting small companies and startups and “IoT 4 real”.

Digital transformation is not only about the future; it is already here, right now. Connected business is our presence. Sweden will showcase this for you – for real!
