Start your own business

Dreaming of starting a business in Uppsala? Or maybe Sweden is the next step for a business you already run? Here’s what you need to know about creating a new venture, registering and operating a company here.

The innovation ecosystem around Uppsala’s two universities is one of Sweden’s best. Both internationally competitive and consistently supportive, ours is an environment to incubate ideas and help business development thrive.


The Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) is an extremely useful source of information and advice for setting up a business. They also offer monthly webinars in English to help guide you through the process of starting your own business. 


Another great resource is the governmental web site, offering guidance and support for anyone starting a business in Sweden, including financial support. There’s even details of local meetings for entrepreneurs, with dedicated resources in the Uppsala County.


Other invaluable business promoters when you want to start your own business in Uppsala are Almi Uppsala, Drivhuset, Uppsala Innovation Centre and Nyföretagarcentrum.
