Stockholm Fintech Hub Chooses a Home with No18

March 14, 2017

Stockholm Fintech Hub and No18 partner up to provide Sweden’s Financial Technology (Fintech) startups with a tailored collaborative and creative workspace.

Stockholm Fintech Hub (SFH), launched in late 2016, provides a physical and digital space to enable Swedish Fintech startups to thrive and grow. SFH have teamed up with No18, who run workspace, lounge and event locales at No18 Stureplan and No18 Grand Central. SFH will be located within No18’s premises at Stockholm Central Station.

Over the last six months, we have looked at many potential offices in Stockholm. When we walked into No 18, we knew we had found something special. We met Michel and his team and had an immediate meeting of minds.” explains SFH’s CEO, Matthew Argent.  “We chose No18 as a partner because they can offer our members, not only a stunning location, but an inspiring and friendly atmosphere and service.”

“We saw immediately that we could help Stockholm Fintech Hub grow and allow them to concentrate on helping their members, while leaving us to manage their space, which is what we do the best,” says entrepreneur and founder of No18, Michel Gordin.

Together SFH and No18 invite the Swedish Fintech community to partake in premium co-working spaces, lounges, and event locales.

“We have had a huge response following our launch,” says Matthew Argent, “and have already laid much of the foundation for collaboration in the Fintech community.  Now we can open our doors and invite everyone into our physical space.”

Fintech startups have different needs to other types of startup company

Whether dealing with financial flows or data flows, financial companies are among the most regulated companies on the planet. So Fintech startups need more specialised legal advice and experience, while the ramp-up period for a Fintech can be longer than for other types of startups.
