1- A house

Located in a five-story brutalist structure, A house was founded in 2015 by a group of creative entrepreneurs who wanted to promote innovation for its core strengths: networking and dialogue.

📍Nybrogatan 8, 114 34 Stockholm
Created by entrepreneurs, Anna Behring Lundh and Fredrik Carlström, Alma is best described as being a space “for creatives, by creatives.” In addition to the communal and private work spaces available, Alma also has a music studio, an outdoor terrace and spaces specifically designed for social interactions.
3- Goto 10
📍Hammarby Kaj 10D, 120 07 Stockholm
Located on Hammarby Kaj, Goto 10's marvellous glass building is unmistakable. Since opening, the space has quickly become known for hosting events on topics such as the Internet of Things, and workshops on 3D printing and programming.
Located on the second floor of the building, Goto 10 strives to create a collaborative environment. Membership is free, and its users are offered spaces to organize events such as lectures, workshops and network gatherings.
4- H2 Health Hub
📍Hälsingegatan 45, 113 31 Stockholm
H2 Health Hub is home to entrepreneurs who are committed to finding solutions for preexisting healthcare systems. Currently the preferred meeting place for the health-tech community in Stockholm, H2 provides a space where people can share experiences, overcome challenges and work together on creating a new ecosystem.
To help its community flourish, the space hosts both public and private events such as community breakfasts and investor mingles.
5- Impact Hub Stockholm
📍Luntmakargatan 25, 111 37 Stockholm
The idea behind Impact Hub’s creation was always to create a community that would intersect meaning, discipline and cultures, and help create a positive change for the world. To this day, the space has been called home by thousands of current and past members who have all collaborated within its walls.
Here you can find flex desk workspaces, a terrace with a three-hundred-person capacity, showers, bike lockers and two internal conference rooms to suit the diverse needs of each entrepreneur.
6- Norrsken House
📍Birger Jarlsgatan 57 C, 113 56 Stockholm
Home to over one hundred companies, Norrsken House is on a mission to foster socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurship by offering special subsidies to companies with a strong social mission. All members can enjoy a discounted rate that can be used on event space rentals and free entry to in-house events.
Not only that, but also the space arranges weekly office hours and workshops with partners, law firms, investors, tech experts and corporations.
📍Valhallavägen 79, 114 28 Stockholm
This energetic and creative space was born out of the desire of seven partners in the Stockholm region to find new and innovative approaches to solving society's challenges. Openlab is committed to creating a diverse, innovative community by opening its doors to individuals from all different background.
Their Open Café, which provides visitors with certified organic, multicultural food, is certainly a hit with members seeking the perfect get-together spot.
8- STHLM Music City
📍 The Royal College of Music, Valhallavägen 105, 115 51 Stockholm
Described by its founders as a community for music creators, innovators, tech companies and more, STHLM Music City uses many spaces in Stockholm and other startup hub cities to grow the collaboration and communication within its community.
This new approach aims to be an “all-access-pass” to raise the quality of connections made between entrepreneurs, and to make music more present in the startup ecosystem.
📍 Regeringsgatan 65, 3f, 111 56 Stockholm
Founded in 2014, SUP46 stands for "Startup People of Sweden", a coworking space and international hub for early-stage tech companies. Through being selective about its members, SUP46 offers support and mentorship in fundraising, international expansion, PR and communications, recruitment and much more. If a member reaches over 10 staff members or A funding round, they are asked to make room for newer companies.
10- The Park
📍 Hälsingegatan 49, 113 31 Stockholm
Back in January 2002, entrepreneur Mikael Ahlstöm set up The Park when he realised that he needed more space to grow his digital agency. With two locations in central Stockholm, the coworking space prides itself on its system of values, and the special care it takes of its residents. Currently there are four levels of membership: Room, Fulltime, Mobile, and Lounge, that are designed to suit its members needs at the time.
Just so you’re aware of how we selected these spaces in Stockholm, we sorted through hundreds of nominations from the community before a local advisory board helped us curate the final list.
