What is #gbgtechweek?
In order to spread the knowledge and awareness about the living tech and startup community in Gothenburg, #gbgtechWeek take place every year in May. During one week, several diverse and inspiring events is hosted for the public in Gothenburg. The events are open and presented by organizations that are mainly non-profit and exist with the goal to promote entrepreneurship and tech in Gothenburg.
Orten.io is bringing the tech events to the so called segregated parts of Sweden, that are only perceived in media as "No-Go Zones”. We condemn the use of the word and we are taking back the meaning of it. These areas where the word multicultural means exchange of creativity and new energies expressing themselves. We want to express it through Tech Entrepreneurship.
Orten.io is trying to create a platform where people no matter the background, social status, gender, religion can meet and be inspired to cooperate within tech entrepreneurship.
Bringing world class startup founders, innovators, investors and partners to inspire and engage with the local communities. Focusing on finding talent in the suburbs that want to venture into entrepreneurship and tech. Also breaking barriers that will lead to inclusion and diversity in the startup scene in Sweden.
