The inspiration that became Yuncture began with the brainstorm of two colleagues at Hammarviken, Elsa and Christoffer. They felt that the city lacked a clear leader when it came to helping young entrepreneurs struggling to break into the business world.
Gothenburg is teeming with young, driven people and promising new companies that have much to offer, and which have the potential to compete on both the national and international stage. Yuncture’s mission is to collect and foster these fresh talents. They facilitate natural contact between young companies and Gothenburg’s business community, thereby lending energy, expertise, and capital to the ideas that are born here.
Young entrepreneurs who take part in our program receive ongoing advice from our investment committee about how to develop their business concepts or build their start-ups. The committee is made up of a panel of experts for whom building and developing businesses is already second-nature. The incubator program runs for 6 months, and Yuncture take on 4–5 companies per session.
