Since 2008, the annual 33-listan, eg. the 33 list, has been compiled by Sweden’s largest technology publication Ny Teknik. Former winners include iconic companies such as Spotify (2009, 2010, 2011), Tobii (2008), and iZettle (2012, 2013, 2014). This year, they reviewed a record 300 nominated companies and selected just 33 that they believed to be the most innovative and promising, quite the challenge.
To be eligible for 33-listan, all companies must meet the following requirements:
be based on their own technical innovation
be less than 7 years old
have a business idea that has international potential
Additionally, the 2020 criteria increased the focus on sustainability; all winning companies were required to have innovations and/or processes that align with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
We’re very proud to be a part of the chosen few in such a rich startup ecosystem as here in Sweden. Massive congratulations to all of the lucky companies who were chosen for 33-listan this year! We look forward to seeing where this year will take us all, and what new and exciting partnership initiatives will come out of this shared success.
