Serendipity’s CEO becomes a part of the City of Stockholm’s innovation jury

The CEO of Serendipity Innovations, Saeid Esmaeilzadeh, has been selected to be a part of the jury for the City of Stockholm Innovation Scholarship, a grant intended to stimulate creativity and entrepreneurship that leads to new products and services.

The City of Stockholm Innovation Scholarship is awarded in seven categories and is judged by an expert jury consisting of some of Sweden's foremost entrepreneurs, innovation researchers and industry experts.

- The City of Stockholm Innovation Scholarship is the largest prize of its kind in Sweden, and, with this jury, we strengthen the expertise within Stockholm's strongest industries, says Ulla Hamilton, traffic and labor market commissioner in Stockholm.

Gathering experts from relevant fields improves the assessment of the innovations' technical and commercial potential.

- The initiative is an important part of involving more Stockholm residents in innovation processes, which is a significant factor for growth. Sweden needs more entrepreneurs who make the most of the existing potential. I'm looking forward to sharing the experience we've built within Serendipity Innovations regarding innovation processes and methodology, says Saeid Esmaeilzadeh.
