Some of our collaborations

Foreign entrepreneur of the year (Årets nybyggare)

One out of five who start a new company has a foreign background. That is why it is important to us to partner with the International Entrepreneur Association (IFS), allowing us to reach out to a wide range of entrepreneurs.

Venture Cup

Venture Cup is a competition for entrepreneurs who want to develop their business ideas into a successful business concept and start a company. We sponsor Venture Cup as part of an effort to help companies grow from a promising business idea to large company.

Mentor

Mentor works to give children and teenagers strong belief in the future, which helps demonstrably in reducing violence and drug use. Mentor's philosophy and organisation fits perfectly with SEB's support for youth and entrepreneurship. We work extensively with Mentor and are one their most faithful sponsors.

New Entrepreneur Centre (NyföretagarCentrum)

New Entrepreneur Centre in Sweden offers cost-free advice to all who want to start a company. In 2012, some 22,500 people came to the centre for advice and consultation. Around 9,400 went on to start a company (well-prepared). After three years, 80% of the companies are still active and have on average two employees. That is why SEB works very actively with the centre.

Junior Achievement (Ung företagsamhet)

Junior Achievement aims to give children and teenagers confidence in their own entrepreneurship through our two equally important areas – entrepreneurship and enterprise. Theory and practice are combined in an inspiring and entertaining way, and everything takes place at school. Organisations give children and teenagers a contact with the business world.

Mamma Mia! The Party

Historically, SEB has supported the music entrepreneurs Björn Ulvaeus’ and Benny Andersson’s musicals from ideas to world success. It all started in 1998 when we started the co-operation with the musical Mamma Mia. Now we are happy to announce that we are taking the next step in this co-operation with Mamma Mia! The Party.
