Standing on the shoulders of giants

Since 1999, the Erling Persson Family Foundation has made possible the establishment and continued developments of the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship (SSES), a unique collaboration between the leading universities of Stockholm, KI, KTH, Konstfack, SSE, SU and KMH. Since its inception, more than 15,000 students have participated in the interdisciplinary programs offered by SSES and the community of enterprising individuals exists across the academic, public and private sectors, in Sweden and abroad. More than 40% of SSES alumni create their own companies, and today this network of entrepreneurs run more than 1,500 self-founded organisations around the globe, employing more than 10,000 people.

At heart, SSES is designed to offer students and researchers a sandbox to explore and realize their imagination with people from diverse disciplines, backgrounds and industries. Thanks to its impact on individuals and the economy, several countries and universities have emulated the SSES model to replicate what the Erling Persson Family Foundation has made possible in Stockholm over the past two decades.
