Gothenburg Tech Week took place in Gothenburg on 6–11 May 2019, when tech and startup events were held all around Gothenburg. This is the fifth consecutive year that Gothenburg Tech Week was carried out. The event is designed to raise awareness about Gothenburg’s tech and startup scene and showcase Gothenburg as a city of enterprise.
“Gothenburg Tech Week is finally here, and we’re seeing the results of months of hard work. We were quite nervous on Monday morning, but also very excited! The week got off to a fabulous start and the atmosphere is buzzing. This year there are 32 events spread out over the week and we’ve put together the best line-up ever, which we’re really proud about. Many organisations have expressed interest in taking part and there have been many visitors, which we’re delighted about. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week, which will be packed with fascinating events and new meetings,” says Malin Kjällström, organiser of the Gothenburg Tech Week.
The week’s programme includes inspiring lectures by distinguished speakers such as Fredrik Reinfeldt, Sweden’s former Prime Minister, Lena Apler, entrepreneur and founder of Collector Bank AB, and Erik Gatenholm, CEO of Cellink AB, to mention just a few. There will also be workshops, hacks and launches relating to technology, startups and enterprise at various venues around Gothenburg. All the events are free of charge and open to everyone.

Gothenburg Tech Week is based on a partnership between Göteborg & Co’s Trade & Industry Group and Region Västra Götaland. The Trade & Industry Group is a partner of Gothenburg Tech Week, and aims to raise the profile of Gothenburg’s tech and startup scene. Gothenburg Tech Week is a non-profit organisation founded to support Gothenburg’s entrepreneurs and startup companies by organising and coordinating a week-long event in May each year.
