Behind the iniative are Stockholms Handelskammare and Klarna. The program will allow development and exposure to experts in order to share their knowledge in the sector.

STING Startup Fintech is led by Jane Walerud, serial entrepreneur, angel investor and previous investor in Lensway and Klarna, as well as Fredrik Rosengren, serial entrepreneur and business coach at STING. The project will use the Lean Startup methodoloy and the Lean Canvas tools to develop ideas.

Anyone with a fintech idea should apply. It costs nothing for those accepted. The team will receive support in order to produce the simplest possible version of their product, or MVP, in order to enable market testing as soon as is possible.

During the course of seven workshops, entrepreneurs with a business idea in fintech will be able to validate and and develop their idea, as well as teach themselves what it means to build a company. The best startup projects will reach a finale, where a winner will receive 10 000 SEK from NFT Ventures.
