The Minc Startup House Story

Minc was established by the City of Malmö in 2002 as one of Scandinavia's first startup incubator programs - just after the dot com-bubble burst, but well ahead of the rise of the new internet giants. In our 20 years we've provided a platform for hundreds of entrepreneurs who want to make a positive impact on the world. And many of them have.

Our entrepreneurs have done everything from developing a new standard for diagnosing mental illness using AI technology to creating the largest Arabic-speaking community with in-depth knowledge about the national affairs. Their innovations have been used to uncover the Panama Papers and they have developed facial recognition technology for Apple.

We're a complete startup house

Today we run the award-winning accelerator Fast Track Malmö and the pre-incubator Startup Labs, as well as our incubator. We work with in-house business developers and a global network of business angles, coaches and industry experts. We offer a community of like-minded and passionate entrepreneurs to connect with, learn from and grow alongside.

Minc is fully owned by the City of Malmö, which means we exist for the common good and aren't driven by profit. Our entrepreneurs will always be our main priority.

  • Malmö is located in a region with more universities than any other place in Europe, making talent easily accessible
  • With more than 190 nationalities, Malmö is the fourth most international city in the world (after London, NYC and Washington DC) - making it an excellent testbed for new, innovative products and services
  • Startups in the Malmö region has raised third most venture capital in all of the Nordics, only behind the tech giants of Stockholm and Copenhagen - the latter of which is 20 minutes away by train
  • And to top it all off, Malmö is exceptionally cheap - it’s 19% cheaper to run a business in Malmö than it is in Berlin

Minc & sustainability

It is our vision to be one of the leading startup houses in Europe
At Minc we help startups and people to grow. For us, it is inevitable that sustainability is part of growth and that it is the way to reach long term success. We support startups to become profitable and at the same time be mindful about resources.

Creating value for the common good lays in the very foundation and assignment for Minc as an organization. It is incorporated in everything we do. Minc’s sustainability strategy was adopted in 2020 and came into action in January 2021. Incorporated in the strategy, and in our vision and mission are our founding principles: Equality, Agenda 2030 and Diversity & Inclusion. The principles permeates everything we do. It is our goal that all startups in our programs contribute positively to Agenda 2030 by 2024.

ISO 26000 – For a better world
ISO 26000 is an international standard focusing upon organisations social responsibility. Sweden has, as the first and only country in the world ratified the standard for including the UN sustainable development goals (SDG:s) with a self-declaration. Minc was on the 1st of September 2021 the first incubator in the world to be verified by this standard – a receipt and a strong proof that we are taking sustainability seriously and systematically work with it. Read our ISO 26000 Self-declaration here, and here, and here you can read VERIFY Agency Sweden’s evaluation and assessment here.
