While Stockholm is the location of choice for half of the Forbes Global 2000 companies in the Nordic region, it is also rivalling Silicon Valley with a hotbed of technology startups. Over 6,500 new companies registered in the region of Stockholm at the end of 2015, and those registered within the capital city itself accounted for just under 4,000 – since 2014, that’s an increase of 10% and 15% respectively. Out of the 22,000 tech companies based in Stockholm, as of 2016 six are currently valued at more than £650m and four of the 30 tech unicorns in Europe are based in Sweden.
Our Stockholm data centres are business hubs for over 210 companies. The Stockholm colocation facilities enable customers to be part of a rich industry ecosystem and feature a dense concentration of network, cloud, media, and content firms and enterprises. From its origins in the 14th century as a trading post, Stockholm has emerged to become one of Europe’s most thriving, green and highly connected cities. It is a widely regarded global centre of engineering, technology and innovation, and hosts one of Europe’s most exciting startup scenes.
According to the World Economic Forum report, Stockholm is the most "digitally connected economy in the world”.
Spotify and Skype are two of the biggest success stories to come out of Sweden in recent years. The two services alone have more than 400 million global users.
Our Stockholm International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centres consist of three buildings with approximately 143,814 square feet (13,361 square metres) of colocation space.
