Helsingborg Business Forum
In September 2019, we launched the Helsingborg Business Forum, an initiative to bring information about business and entrepreneurship closer to international residents of Helsingborg. We did this, and continue to do so by collaborating with Helsingborg International Connections, Helsingborgs Stad, Helsingborg Business Community and Mindpark.
What is the forum? A series of events on a variety of topics related to setting up a business and being an entrepreneur in Sweden. From testing an idea to funding opportunities and accelerators/incubators in the city, we invite guest speakers and experts to interact with our participants once every month.
