IBM wins Best Startup Collaborator at Ignite Awards 2019
With a strong personal engagement to pave the way through internal processes, IBM and their representatives in Ignite Sweden have proven it is possible to partner up with startups, despite differences in size, finances and culture. By being open to new ideas and new technologies, they have during this year entered into new partnerships, a key factor in keeping both startups and corporates in the international forefront.
It is incredibly gratifying that large companies like IBM have opened their eyes to Sweden's fantastic tech scene, says Pär Hedberg, CEO of Sting and initiator of Ignite Sweden. With over 15 years of experience at a startup incubator, I can see that startups that get their first customer early also scale up their business much faster. What IBM is contributing by collaborating with startups is important for Sweden.
