In our accelerator, Affinity, we connect cutting-edge entrepreneurs with world-class advisors and experts from multiple backgrounds to enable cross-disciplinary innovation and create solutions for solving wicked problems.

We accept applications on a rolling basis.

Affinity is a phenomenon seen across disciplines such as geology, chemistry, medicine, computing, biology, and geometry. In each context, the definition of affinity is substantially different, yet it always retains a connotation of natural attraction and relationship among its elements.
In our accelerator, Affinity is attained through combining leading minds across disciplines, convened to design and prototype solutions to complex challenges. Affinity at SSES Ventures is the most interdisciplinary accelerator in Sweden’s innovation ecosystem today.
We bring together advisors and companies from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to favor cross-disciplinary innovation.
The program equips the next generation of entrepreneurs with the right tools to navigate the uncharted waters of innovation. To achieve this ambitious goal, we created an environment in which companies and selected individuals work closely to develop the knowledge and enact meaningful change.
