• We strongly encourage you to drop your clothes in advance. However, if you do not have the possibility to drop off your clothes prior to the event, you may bring them on the event day March 23, from 17:00. The official event start time is 18:00.

Stylist Involvement Information


Welcome to ask stylist Silvia Cosma for recommendations about sustainable fashion and personal branding.
You can get advice on items from the clothes swap market, but you are also welcome to bring a few clothing items from home, that you would like to get advice on.
This way, we give new life to already produced clothes on multiple levels!

Did you know? The fashion industry alone is estimated to produce 10% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions.

At this event, we learn more about why conscious consumption is important and get to experience hands-on new ways of fashion, which are innovative, interactive, and fun!


This event is for Young Professional Members and your +1 guests, for Edge Olympic colleagues, and for the Swedish Chamber Network.

We are very much looking forward to this grand event together with fantastic collaboration partners and an engaged network!

Let us learn something new, have fun, and swap clothes!

A changing tech landscape – New strategies to attract and maintain tech talent


As we all know, the tech industry is changing at a fast pace. Big tech parties, including Microsoft, Meta, HP, Spotify and Amazon, have been laying off workers by the thousands in the last months. What lies behind the wave of layoffs? Is it a correction for the exponential growth of recent years or are there other underlying factors?

Despite the recent layoffs in the tech industry human capital remains one of the most important factors for the growth of tech companies and there is still a great demand for tech talent. Employees still have the luxury to choose from offers from multiple tech companies. Employees are increasingly making decisions about their career based on the impact and the sustainable strategy of their future employer rather than the salary or bonuses they will receive. Other relevant factors are the ability to influence the policy of the company and to create a positive impact on society and on wellbeing instead of merely helping the company achieve its revenue targets.

In this tech table we have gathered tech specialist from Sweden and the Netherlands to discuss which lessons of the recent development in the tech sector can be learned.  Are you as an employee a good fit for the company and is the company as employer a good fit for you? Labor has gotten a lot more expensive, companies have to hire the best, but is that enough?  Companies also have to rethink how they reskill and upskill their teams. People are the most important factor for a company’s growth. How to find the right people and which strategies do you need to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring teams, and How to maintain and attract new tech talent?


Who should attend:
• HR Managers and Director
• Managing Directors and CEOs
• Anyone wanting to know more about new strategies to maintain and attract Tech Talent
• Anyone looking to improve their Tech Workforce

The Netherlands is also an interesting test market for further expansion to countries in Europe, the business climate is similar to that in Sweden. Swedish companies and products have a good reputation in innovation, technology and quality, but also sustainability among consumers. The country is the most densely populated in the EU with 17.53 million inhabitants on an area roughly the same size as Götaland. The infrastructure is often cited as the best in Europe, including Europe’s largest port. The Netherlands, and especially Amsterdam, is very international, and you get along well in English both professionally and privately.
