Sweden's entrepreneurial purple patch is a direct consequence of the country's high taxes and generous cradle-to-grave welfare system. "There is free schooling, including getting paid a stipend for attending university, while healthcare is quite inexpensive and pensions are taken care of," says Jane Walerud, CEO of Stockholm-based Teclo Networks, and also a member of the Swedish government's Innovation Council.

Caroline speaks at Startup Day

“SUCCESS IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE” 
Caroline Walerud from Volumental reminds us that the road to success is a more complex road than what it seems. That sometimes, even the greatest idea is not necessary a straight line to an exit, a big bank account and endless holidays on the Bahamas, but that motivation, work, and a touch of taste for adventure is the key. Those inspirational moments were an important part of this one day event and by looking to the crowd, listening almost religiously the words from the speakers, you felt that this spirit will be found in the next generation of entrepreneurs.
