Mindpark Helsingborg is located in the old Tretorn factory and home to around 75 companies. In 2014 Mindpark Helsingborg was selected one of the 11 most exotic coworking places in the world, being the only one in Europe. Their Open Space is open for everyone and is host to more than 200 events every year.
We had the pleasure of hosting our WiE breakfast at MindPark Helsingborg where the local founders can sit down work, relax and enjoy the delicious coffee from our café. We invited 4 female founders to join the discussion. Each of them shared a bit what they do and the challenges they faced starting their own business.
We also talked about the obstacles faced by foreign women in Sweden, as well as the importance of creating support networks to encourage female participation in all areas of innovation and entrepreneurship.
