SSE Business Lab partners up with Microsoft

In a combined effort to strengthen Sweden’s international competitiveness, the School’s startup incubator has partnered up with Microsoft Sweden. By supporting the incubator, the tech corporation wants to help SSE Business Lab’s startups accelerate their growth journeys. Through the partnership, the startups gain access to powerful development and productivity tools and become part of Microsoft’s global network of startups.

“Startups are a crucial part of Sweden’s retention of being a leading hub for innovation. Microsoft Sweden’s ambition is to help Sweden become more competitive, which is why I am proud to announce our partnership with SSE Business Lab. We’re both passionate about helping startups reach their full potential, which ultimately benefits society as a whole. I look forward to following the startups’ journeys”, says Therése Treutiger, Director Global Partner Solutions & Innovation at Microsoft Sweden.

Founded in 2001, SSE Business Lab has been working to encourage a career in entrepreneurship among the students, alumni and faculty of the Stockholm School of Economics for over 20 years. The incubator has supported more than 250 companies since its inception – among them well-known successes like Klarna, Voi Technology and Budbee (now part of the new Instabee Group). Other than the new partnership with Microsoft, SSE Business Lab provides access to a wide variety of partner offers from organizations like Scrive, PE Accounting, and Grosshandelssocieteten as part of Stockholms Borgerskap.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Microsoft for Startups. By bringing together insights from companies from all over the world, their tools will help our startups solve their challenges faster. The fact that Microsoft has this global network of startups and companies makes them a highly valuable part of our partner network,” says Julia Delin, CEO of SSE Business Lab and SSE Ventures.
