On Startup Europe — The Sifted Podcast, we chat about the biggest things coming out of Europe’s tech and startup sector. And this week, we’ve got a special episode focusing on Swedish tech.

Sifted has been visiting the Nordic nation for our Stockholm Sessions event, where we caught up with founders working in everything from electric-powered boats to a plan to build a metaverse-powered aquarium at the bottom of a real-life fjord.


We were also joined by Klarna’s CEO, Sebastian Siemiatkowski, who gave an interview on what the media gets wrong about his company, and why it’s sometimes ok to lose $100m a month.
