Wow, what an event STHLM Tech Fest 2016 turned out to be!
The auditorium was packed to the brim with technology hungry professionals and enthusiasts. As promised every start-up founder, investor, designer, developer and journalist came together to share, inspire, be inspired and meet the whole start-up ecosystem, with visitors from over 20 countries.
As I sat with pen to paper, I was ready to learn as much as I could and be part of this ground-breaking event taking place in Stockholm; the start-up capital of Sweden. The energy in the room was enough persuasion that things in tech are immersed in an era of knowhow, breakthrough and ultimately, a tech revolution. The interactive Q&A session was insightful about the career opportunities businesses will offer in order to grow and stay successful.
Taskrunner was a business that I felt was on point with their approach to market; a simple and secure way for you to get help with services with the use of quality-assured people in your neighbourhood - on-demand. Let’s face it, we are living in an age where convenience is everything and this innovative solution provides things we require on our desks or to our door - in a short space of time - whilst we carry on making money or enjoying our own leisure time not having to worry about any tedious tasks we may want to avoid! This leads to the next development in Internet of Things. Taskrunner will be able to get that bottle of milk your fridge has let you know is running low! The business opportunities are endless for this brand and these guys are running with it...
There was a lot of speculation and noise about Evolution Gaming – defining the future of video games. It’s great to hear about the visions and goals of so many people and business – the future looks bright! Eurostaff recently hosted our firstVirtual and Augmented Reality Meetup in Stockholm (join our Meetup!), with another VR/AR event set to take place in December and we hope Evolution Gaming will be floating around with a VR headset at our event then!
I look forward to my next visit to Stockholm – things are changing at a rapid rate in technology, altering our lifestyles and routines forever. The future is now!
