Welcome Week

Reflecting on Welcome Week 2023, an initiative for connecting companies and students in the vibrant tech scene of Kista Science City.

As an annual highlight in Kista’s tech calendar, Welcome Week brings together academic life and professional opportunities. The week offers a unique platform for local companies to showcase their work and to network with the next generation of talent. Both newcomers and returning students have  seized the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the community that they are becoming a part of.

Welcome week includes a range of collaborative activities, from industry-focused seminars to casual networking lunches and interactive tech demos. Students gain valuable insights into the diverse career paths and opportunities that Kista’s ecosystem offers beyond academia, enriching the educational journey with real-world perspectives.

Mikaela Färnqvist, Community Manager at Kista Science City, shares her thoughts on the week:

”Welcome week is all about bringing people together. During these events, we see key players from the tech industry meet and connect with the students here in Kista. I’m really looking forward to seeing what new opportunities will come from the meetings.”

Welcome Week is an annual, collaborative effort involving several Kista businesses and academia centers, including and DISK / Stockholm University, IN-sektionen / KTH, Ericsson, Fujitsu, and IBM.

For companies, this event provides a great opportunity for connections with students, not just during Welcome Week, but also year-round.
