For the 7th year NyTeknik and Affärsvärlden made the list of Swedens 33 hottest tech companies. Last year we had 5 startups from the region on the list, this year those have increased to 6!
The six startups that made the list are:
Last years winners were Neo Technology, Zaplox, Sol Voltaics, Anolytech and Trialbee. Three of those kept their places, but Zaplox and Neo Technology are no longer on it. Why that is we do not know, but from Zaplox going strong with the latest news where about big orders and large collaborations, and the guys at Neo are moving even further into the U.S. market.
Newcomers on the list
New on the list are Mapillary, an ambitious startup by veterans from Neo, PolarRose and Apple – aiming to do what Google has done with streetview but enabling it everywhere. You can read an interview with Jan Erik Solem that we have done earlier here.
Also new is Simris Alg, a company that aims to take food production to a new level, using specialised algea, that recently announced a new round of € 1.3 M funding.
And the third newcomer on the list is Avidicare, a MedTech startup that works with air-contamination in healthcare.
