A global meeting place: Hammarkullen Interconnected

Linda Genborg 2012-04-12

A platform where cultural entrepreneurs and small business owners can find advice on how to finance their ideas online. On April 17 it’s time for Hammarkullen Interconnected.

“Crowdfunding via the Internet, micro-credit and social capital are some of the new ways to find money,” says Peter Rundqvist, culture coordinator in the project Development North-East, one of Sweden’s largest EU projects for urban development.

The event is held at Folkets Hus in Hammarkullen. Cultural entrepreneurs and business owners who are looking for new financing ideas and creative solutions can connect with like-minded people from Europe, USA, Canada and Nigeria. 200 people took part in the first event in Bergsjön earlier this year.

“We learn more about how projects and ideas can be financed and through the game Allogamy we create new ideas to try,” says Peter Rundqvist.

Several networks will be present during the evening, including Tidsnätverket in Bergjsön, Brewhouse, ADA, The West Swedish Chamber of Commerce, BRG/Mind your own business, Karnevalskommitteén and HAM-SAM.
