Global Talent & Talent in a Global World

Thursday, July 7:th 2016 from 18:30 - 21:00
Visby, Almedalen

Sweden is leading the world in innovation & tech. Top talents are starting, building and scaling global companies. Many of these startups are looking at solving the real problems of our world. One of them is Just Arrived! - connecting newly-arrived immigrants with Swedish companies. With a team of tech talents & funding from e.g. Niklas Adalberth (co-founder Klarna) they are connecting talents from all around the world with Swedish companies.
A big stream of new citizens are immigrating to Europe, but is it a problem? Or is it actually an untapped potential with amazing global talent? At Startup Grind Almedalen we will talk about what it means to build talent & value - today and in the future.

What is Startup Grind?

Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. We host monthly events in 150 cities and 65 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.

Startup Grind is a connected online and offline network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level. While Startup Grind was founded in Palo Alto, California, our extended network of Startup Grind chapters are located around the world. Start a Chapter in your city or school!

We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.

Networking partner

With over 35 000 visitors it can be hard to find the right people to network with during Almedalen. With the app ”Mingla”, which has been described as Tinder for Almedalen, it becomes much easier. The idea is simple. You log in with your social medias, create a profile and a presentation and then you start swiping. If you find someone you want to meet, you swipe right and if you are lucky you get a match, can start chatting and meet up.
