Digital Innovation & Growth – an agenda for the future in Internet & media.

Pinar Metin and Thomas Arctaedius at ayond have been appointed the role as project coordinators for a new initiative, led by Sweden’s largest business/start-up incubator, STING (Stockholm Innovation & Growth). The project, referred to as Digital Innovation & Growth (DING), aims to find new ways and collaborations that will strengthen and support commercial growth within the Internet & media field in Sweden.

The goal is to write an application for support through Vinnova, by creating a Strategic Innovative Field (SIO)-program. The engagement is a cross-pollination of experiences and perspectives between public, private and research sectors to define a common problem area and strategic plan. The working process is open and transparent, inviting all relevant actors to join and influence such a program. Today, the project includes representatives from KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) and Hyper Island. “
