What is Swedsoft?

Swedsoft gathers Swedish software in an independent non-profit organization with the mission to increase the competitiveness of Swedish software. Our members are companies, academia and the public sector in Sweden. Together we work to ensure that Sweden is world leading in the development of software and software-intensive products, systems and services.

Why should we become members?

As members of Swedsoft, you become a part of the work we do to strengthen and influence Swedish software development and research, through the projects and the lobbying the association does. Together, we are a strong voice for Swedish software and contribute to Swedish competitiveness.

From Fossil to Binary

We live in a world that is digitizing at an ever-increasing pace. Not so long ago, a truck was characterized by a combustion engine running on fossil fuels; today, the reality is different. At Swedsoft, we actively work to promote the software industry in Sweden in various ways, with the overarching aim of securing competitiveness and growth in the green transition. In this effort, we grow stronger with each additional member who can contribute and support us.

Some examples of what you can get as a member:

  • New contacts and networks that can lead to business and collaboration across traditional boundaries (eg with other industries and between industry and academia)
  • At the events (conferences, seminars, meetings, workshops and networking meetings) we organize all around Sweden there is an opportunity for members to:
    • Participate and share knowledge and inspiration
    • Give presentations
    • Arrange – an opportunity to highlight important areas for you and make them visible. For example, are you planning a seminar, why not do it together with the association and reach out even more?
    • Network with people from different industries and academies
    • Host events or meetings
  • Participate in (and start) projects. Examples of projects that we have done or are doing together with members are projects on school digitization, statistics on the need for software development and integration of newly arrived software developers. What is interesting for you?
  • Visibility as a member when we show our members. Among other things, on the website, in brochures, presentations by the association and leaflets at our events.
  • Be part of the reports and comment letters Swedsoft writes about various topics. As a member, you can “sign on” to many of our reports and comment letters. This is an opportunity for you to both influence and show your commitment. In addition, all members are usually given the opportunity to comment on the drafts. You can find reports from Swedsoft here (mostly in Swedish).
  • Discounts on our events, some courses and on a variety of other things the secretariat procured such as discounts on train travel, fuel, hotels (see

Feel free to contact us and we will tell you more!
