Client

We joined a collaboration journey with Ignite Sweden to build a fully responsive match-making platform that has generated over 3600 meetings between startups and larger corporations.

Ignite Sweden aims to increase the pace of innovation and economic growth by establishing tighter bonds between Sweden’s great startups and large corporates.

Task

Build a match-making platform for Sweden’s startup ecosystem.

We built a complete match-making platform that allows startups, corporations, and incubators to manage their profile and get matched with organisations with the same needs.

Technologies used

Node.js, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, React, Sendgrid, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Docker. 

Challenges

Keeping up with businesses require constant dialogue.

Ignites main activity is to create match-making events where startups and corporates speed-date. The events can be anything between 10-20 a year, where the largest gathers thousand of attendees. The workload of the system will thus fluctuate and scale accordingly. Business decisions can change fast, new events can be announced with short notice, and good communication is required at all times.

Verdict

A successful collaboration helping Sweden’s startup community finding sales and new oppurtunities.

We are very proud to be Ignite’s tech partner on their journey to create new opportunities.
