Impact Hub Stockholm  Stockholm’s first community for social entrepreneurs, pioneering a world where business works in service of people and planet!

Have you ever tried eating insects? @bug_burger Founder Anders Engström launched his book with us tonight. What a great opportunity to learn about insect innovations, get cooking tips from Ola - Sweden’s Insect Chef, and meet many of those who are working with bringing a more sustainable form of protein to the fore. Would you eat insects?

For 2 years, @sthlmfoodmovement has been bringing together changemakers and future food industry leaders so we can learn about the current challenges of today, the progress, and the gaps to work towards creating a more sustainable and regenerative food system.
The event this month highlighted innovators in the market.
@frill.se The Frozen Smoothie company aims to improve children's diets in Sweden. Just 1 in 10 consume the recommended daily intake of fibre, fruit and vegetables. The product was under development for two years in order to refine the process of creating an ice cream like texture from a product that is a smoothie packed with fruit, berries and vegetables.

Matverk is a competition that aims to drive the development of new collaborative and local products in Stockholm.
@pantapasen is being rebranded as Pantapå and makes it possible for companies to brand their consumer products with the startup's unique identification codes so that customers can cash in the packaging at over 5,000 recycling stations around the country in exchange for brand vouchers. By giving packaging value, we become one step closer to stopping environmental packaging waste at the source!

Last night, we launched a new #meetup in Stockholm with @dataiku, alongside Anna Baecklund, Principal Data Scientist at Swedbank & Guilherme Dinis Jr., Machine Learning Engineer at Spotify. We welcomed over 100 fans of #dataanalytics and #machinelearning to our hub for pizza, beer, networking, and talks. We learned how you can look into executive gender pay gap using comprehensive data analytics, what to consider when creating a statistical or #ml system for banking, and how how to interpret system health with @swedbanksverige and @spotifysweden. Looking forward to the next event in December!

Meet Alexandra Ciobîcă, who joined our community in June this year. She studied political science in Bucharest and majored in International and European relations at @linkopings_universitet

She is working for the african-led civil society organization Accountability International, a NGO that conducts evidence based research to improve accountability to vulnerable and marginalised communities. Through conducting research and advocacy, Accountability International works as a watchdog and holds various leaders responsible for their actions. ⠀
Just transitioning from resource mobilization to research, Alexandra is now focusing on needs-based research, research development and resourcing, as well as working on the project ‘Challenging Criminalization Globally’. CCG seeks to connect the various movements around how a larger variety of stakeholders can challenge criminalisation and laws that are policing people based on their sexual orientation, gender identity or bodily autonomy. ⠀

Being part of an international team with its main office in Cape Town, Alexandra can rely on her co-workers not only in Africa but also in Brussels and Stockholm and connect work to her love for traveling. ⠀

Apart from that, Alexandra loves to spend her free time painting and when we asked her why she likes coming here almost every day, she also referred to that passion: “I especially like the design of this place. It’s so cozy but at the same time it creates an atmosphere that makes me focus really well. My absolute favorite are the SDGs steps how they are looking at us, pushing us and constantly reminding us what we are here for: working for a better world.”⠀

Absolutely, Alex! And we’re so proud to have you by our side making this global movement happen! ⠀

This week our Community Hosts bring a decidedly more spooky feeling to #sexysallad with spiralized beetroot, carrot, green olives, onion and quinoa. Bloody delicious. We have stains to prove it

This week’s #membermonday features Naimul Abd! ⠀

Creating this week’s text was a bit of a challenge as instagram captions are limited to 2200 characters, making it hard to present such a multifaceted personality as Naimul. ⠀
Not only is @naimulabd part of the @coompanion team advising people to run and develop companies, teams and ideas; but after coming to Sweden in 2014, he got immediately involved in the EU incubator programme @steptwoprojekt. Based in Växjö, it targets foreign entrepreneurs from over 25 nationalities who are starting their business to find new solutions for society and environment.⠀

Naimul is himself an #impactentrepreneur and early-stage #investor. His company Globalities AB is involved with more than 5 tech-startups with impact focus including music, tech, social media, recruitment and CSR.⠀

He produces music as well and just released his new album in Pakistan and a single in Sweden. At the moment, he is co-creating a song about the political scene here, which will be sung in 3 different languages! If you’re into Hip-Hop or electronic dance, make sure to check it out on @spotifysweden or YouTube! ⠀

Naimul told us that he especially enjoys the coziness of #impacthubsto and the great community. “I’ve only been a member for a month but I immediately felt the good vibe in here. Everyone is very down to earth, which is good because in other communities the problem is that startups who start to scale up begin to act snobby and that’s absolutely not the case here.”⠀

Thank you for being part of the Entrepreneurial ecosystem, Naimul! (and supplying your co-workers with chocolates when they’re running on low blood sugar! ;) ) ⠀

It’s #sexysallad time again! Today, we shared a mouthwatering autumnal mix of beetroot, feta cheese and crisp pear tossed together with loads of good conversations and laughter. For dessert we devoured the fingerlicking @fitnessbutterofficial that is produced by Maria Michael, one of our lovely members! <3 ⠀
Thank you everyone for joining in, it has been a pleasure as always!⠀

As the summer has almost fully vanished here in Stockholm, we would love to introduce you to one of our members - a sunny Scottish soul Andrew. Andrew Boddy is a freelancer specialized in technical project management. He has been building databases, systems and programs in many different countries around the world. Currently he is working on creating a tool aimed at retail and individual investors who are actively trading their investments. It will provide them with clearly arranged data to make their management easier. Andrew has been a member of Impact Hub Stockholm since May 2017 and loves the value-driven atmosphere in this coworking space: “Whilst my job is all about finance, I resonate a lot with the principles of the members here and this is what makes working here so enjoyable… to connect on another level than just pure work.” While his working life is filled with computers and finance, he is dedicating his free time fully to his own market-style garden on his property in the Stockholm Archipelago. Passionate about sustainable food and permaculture, he is growing all kinds of fruit and veggies himself and even takes care of some baby chicks! One other crazy project he has taken on was fixing up a sunken boat as well as a house with no chimneys, windows or floors… in which he is now living in! You see, this guy really gets shit done and is a great source of inspiration for our community. Thanks for taking your time for chatting and all the best wishes from our side! #impacthubsto #stockholmentrepreneurs #impactmakers #changemakers #technicalprojectmanagement #freelancerstockholm #database #investmenttool #permaculture #homegrown #fromscotlandtosweden #membermonday #sthlmhubstories #sthlmtech #gdprexpert #permaculture #marketgarden

How do you manage a brand to make the biggest impact? What should you do if you’re starting a catering business? How can machine learning promote greater democracy? Find out all these and more at #SthlmFoodMovement on Wednesday! If this is your first time, this initiative brings a monthly event to #impacthubsto to explore how those working within the food industry (and sometimes outside the normal scope) use food as a vehicle for change. Join us if you’re looking to build a more sustainable and regenerative future. You can go to our bio to find out more about this event.

On this pretty date we would like to share the inspiring life story of Johanna Swartling with our community. Johanna has been a member of the Hub for half a year as she is working with @checheza_learning - a platform that provides educational material to children in need (check our post of Katarina Stensson to learn more!). Growing up, music has always been her biggest passion: she studied music in highschool, played various instruments, basically her whole life revolved around it. Some time later she realized that the pressure that goes along with a musical career is not quite her cup of tea… and booked a flight to China!⠀
Subsequently, after learning mandarin for a year, she decided to start studying engineering, which led her to another far-away country: Brazil, for 14 months on exchange.

Although Johanna enjoyed the structure and logic behind her subject and the job she was working in at that time, she felt like she was missing making music and being involved in more social activities.⠀
This realization led her to back studying music and engaging in different social projects. In the end, she met Katarina, founder of Checheza and got involved in her business where she can now combine her engineering knowledge with the drive to make the world a more equal place. As Johanna says, the Hub taught her to be more open and talkative: “I love the community thinking in this place. For example, just a day after I signed up for my membership, a woman from Denmark who was doing something similar that us contacted me because she saw my profile on the membership page. Being in touch with her and sharing experiences made me realize how important spaces like these are. Spaces that give people the possibility to connect and make this world a better place. TOGETHER.”⠀
We think that Johanna’s story shows that you don’t always have to go straight from A to B to succeed in a happy and purposeful life. If you’d like to join our global network, check out our bio!
