When walking to and from the hospital/
university everyday I get to enjoy the beautiful gardens of Uppsala. Being just a short trainride from Stockholm Uppsala is a nice daytripp, has a lot to offer in terms of Swedish history plus it's a nice town with a good atmosphere! I'll give you a proper guide later on this week, meanwhile enjoy a few pics..

2nd place in the FINAL!

Today was the day that we got to compete in the final of this year’s edition of student entrepreneur of the year in Sweden. With a chance of proceeding to the main event in NY, stakes were quite high to say the least, and competition was fierce..

No not at all! The other two contestants were lovely, we had a great time and it was a lot of fun to exchange ideas with other entrepreneurs.

All three finalists, Absoluteapartment, Verendus and Blåbärsgården, got to present their companies in front of a jury of 8 who then proceeded to question us, our ideas and intentions. We couldn't have had more different companies if we had tried but all of us had an unique idea, and we went for it. 
All in all, it was a great day, I learnt a lot, got some really good ideas from a few of the jury members and the presentation was very good if I may say so. I also scored a few more apartments for the rest of you to book! =)  I might also buy a few Blueberry bushes..
In the end, we winded up in second place, the winner Verendus was already doing amazingly well, the idea and the brilliant company might actually win the whole thing. I wish Dick Petersson the best of luck in NY and thank Entreprenörskapsforum for a great day!

Stockholm Ghost walk, well worth it!

Picture taken from Do today
So we finally got to do the famous Ghost walk and we can certainly recommend it to anyone and everyone, perhaps not the youngest children though.

We started out at Järntorget in Old town and then followed our guide through the narrow alleys of Old town through Stockholm’s history via great battles, blood baths, diseases and whorehouses. Our guide made the old stories and legends come to life, made us jump a few times with her great approach to old murders of famous people throughout the hundreds of years of history. We were quite a big group, aged between 7 and 70 I'd say and everyone enjoyed themselves vividly. I'm sure all guides have more or less the same approach to the tour so you will not be disappointed even if you don't get our amazing guide.. =)

Since this entry was for you guys, we decided to go all in and try out one of the dinnerpackages that they offered and we winded up on Engelen. This is an old and quite famous restaurant in Old town, they do quite a lot of live bands and the guests are mainly in their forties out for a good night. 
It was a set 3 course dinner, at great value I might add, and we were not disappointed at all. In the end we stayed on for a few more drinks, enjoyed the band and had a very nice evening. 
All in all, we strongly recommend Stockholm Ghost walk and we hope that you take the opportunity to enjoy it when you are in Stockholm!

Final in the Student Entrepreneur!

Wow aren't we proud!

Absoluteapartment made it to the final of the Swedish edition of the GSEA competition for Global student entrepreneurs. This is naturally a great honor and I couldn't be happier! 
It's thanks to all of our wonderful hosts and guests that we came all this way, and I hope we will go a lot further. Our aim is as always set as high as possible so if we somehow would manage to win the Swedish edition (after all, it's only us and two other great companies left..) then we will be of for the Global Final in NY in early November. 
Keeping our fingers crossed that we will get the honor of joining the other companies over there even though we are more then happy to be top 3 in Sweden.

Best of luck to all the participants!

Stockholm Ghost walk

On friday, me and two friends are going to check out Stockholm Ghost walk that we heard so much about, I'll be sure to update you on how it all went. I'm also going to try to get some sort of cooperation with them for our guests, I'll get back to you on that as well. What they do are guided half theatrical tours through Old town, based on true stories of the famous and not so famous people who lived and mainly died here. Going to be great fun!
