5 Swedish startups to look out for in 2014

Startups are springing up everywhere in Europe at an increasing rate. At the beginning of this year, we took a look at major European countries and tried to come up with a list of 5 startups for each country to look out for in 2014. We started with France, have moved on to Spain, Greece, Italy, Poland, the UK, The Netherlands, Germany and now it’s time for Sweden.

As with all of the lists, it’s been hard to narrow this list down to just five. Despite this, we’ve decided to select five promising Swedish startups, each coming from different sectors. All of them entered the market within the last three years and each of the listed startups has something special to add to the web experience in 2014.
