We are a group of students from Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship that believe that Gothenburg's tech and startup scene should get more focus. Last year Andreas and Linus saw that many event organizers want to achieve the same thing, but they did not collaborate. Therefore they founded #gbgtechWeek, to both put light on the tech and startup scene in Gothenburg, but also to promote collaboration between the different organizations around in Gothenburg. We have no interest in money and do this without any budget.

We just want to make #gbgtech a better place for the future!
