100+ Swedish Climate Tech Startups To Know

From energy production to food and ag, transport to materials

Next in our climate mapping series: Sweden. We asked LinkedIn for the Swedish climate tech founders you need to know. For a country of just 10.4M people, we were surprised to see the Swedish climate tech scene is overflowing with incredible companies, especially in deep tech.

If there’s someone you think we’ve missed, please add them to the comments here so we can get this updated.

A few observations:

  • Sweden has a strong climate tech presence supported by an active entrepreneurial ecosystem and largely funded by local investors.

  • Energy Optimization and Energy Production are particularly well represented followed by Food and Ag, then Transport.

  • The average age of CEO’s is older than those in our lists of Switzerland, France, UK and Germany.

  • Many of the CEO’s bring with them years of operational experience working prior in non-climate tech, banking or corporate sector.

  • Swedish companies have done well in attracting global VC attention from some of top funds across Europe and US.

Before jumping in… what do VC’s like Planet A, FoodLabs, Lowercarbon Capital and Zero Carbon Capital and all have in common?

They’ll all be participating in this years HackSummit on May 11-12th, Europe’s dedicated climate conference for founders and funders.
