Ignite Public

What do start-ups and the public sector have in common? From our perspective – not nearly enough. The public sector is missing out on new innovations and a lot of sustainable and clever solutions never come to fruition.

We want municipalities, authorities and county councils to benefit from Swedish innovation. The purpose of Ignite Public is to initiate collaboration between startups and public enterprises.

Do you represent a public enterprise? Take part in Ignite Public and discover the benefits of making good use of startups and innovative solutions.
