This September 26th, 17:30-21:00, we will bring together the startup community and Ericsson experts to discuss the future of 5G and how your startup can benefit from Ericsson’s global network.

You will get a chance to know more about the potential of 5G in a relaxed and down-to-earth setting and how you can use it as a platform to build growth.  Come meet us to learn how to connect to the Ericsson Garage – an in-house technology incubator.


  • Welcome speech by Magnus Melander, Evangelist THINGS®, CEO Wbird AB and Founder SMSE
  • Fire-side chat with Sandor Albrecht, Founder of the Ericsson Garage, Emma Gabrielsson, Director Business Development at Ericsson and Peter Öhlén, Principal Researcher at Ericsson
  • Mingle, food and networking with 5G & business experts from Ericsson


There is a lot of press and interest around 5G. Yes, speeds will be higher, but 5G will also be a platform for advanced services like remote surgery, autonomous vehicles and smart connected cities. These new services will take advantage of 5G and distributed cloud capabilities at the network edge.

Here interesting opportunities arise, and complex challenges need to be solved. We see a mix of small and large companies developing building blocks to create new services and manage the underlying platform. Different IoT applications will be increasingly important, including e.g. manufacturing & transportation.

There is a range of different technologies needed and some key examples are:

  • Machine learning and AI
  • Visualization
  • Data mining
  • Software components for new services – IoT & people
