Innovation in education and fashion boosts the capital region

The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce is highlighting three initiatives that has contributed in making the capital region more innovative, inclusive, and outgoing. Ideas and projects that simply boosts Stockholm/Uppsala, our capital region.

In November we paid tribute to and hand out the Boosting the Capital-prize to Zakaria Hersi, Helena Waker and Barbara Bergström.

ZAKARIA HERSI

Zakaria was awarded for his work with orten.io, an organization which links talents from the suburb with tech-companies, and therefore confronts two of the capital region’s most pressing challenges: integration and labor shortage.

HELENA WAKER

Helena was awarded for her contribution with the Stockholm Fashion District, an initiative which has gathered a formerly fragmented sector quickly turning it into a brand that attracts tourists and talents from all over the world.

BARBARA BERGSTRÖM

Barbara was warded for her tireless work with the International English School, that through structure and demand on knowledge has pushed tens of thousands of students toward a brighter future.
