Orten.io is bringing the tech events to the so called segregated parts of Sweden, that are only perceived in media as "No-Go Zones”. These areas where the word multicultural means exchange of creativity and new energies expressing themselves. We want to express it through Tech Entrepreneurship.
Orten.io is trying to create a platform where people no matter the background, social status, gender, religion can meet and be inspired to cooperate within tech entrepreneurship.
Bringing world class startup founders, innovators, investors and partners to inspire and engage with the local communities. Focusing on finding talent in the suburbs that want to venture into entrepreneurship and tech. Also breaking barriers that will lead to inclusion and diversity in the startup scene in Sweden.
It started off in Tensta, Stockholm last year and later we were in Rosengård, Malmö and Bergsjön, Göteborg. Now we back in Stockholm again and now in Husby during SthlmTech Fest Safari.
