Spin-off Companies from RISE ICT

One of our strengths is our focus on both excellence and innovation. We experience that scientists and entrepreneurs that start businesses with the starting point in the institutes bring great knowledge of customer needs and extensive experience of business cooperation; a good base for successful business.

To start a new business is also a way to create renewal of industry and society based on ICT. In addition to supporting existing companies, RISE ICT has a successful process to create and support new businesses based on our research results. The companies spun off from RISE ICT show strong growth and profitability. The study by Grufman Reije shows that the 17 ICT companies that were spun off from RISE ICT between 2000-2005 had a total turnover of 1.25 billion SEK by 2010. It can for example be compared with the total turnover of 1.2 billion SEK that 122 companies from incubators at our major universities show in the same period.
