Skövde's transformation into a green tech hub

You don't have to live in a big city to have a career or run successful companies in game development, tech or future industry. Skövde has shown this.
A completely new district is emerging in Mariesjö in Skövde. Where industries and business premises were previously located, a new area is now being built where housing, offices, a university, shops and various service functions will coexist. The Bostället residential area, which was ready for occupancy in the fall of 2023, includes two buildings with 71 apartments. Right from the start, there was great interest in the new homes, and one of those who moved in is 26-year-old software programmer Hannes Kindströmmer.
Made in Skövde is proud to once again jointly exhibit at this year's Elmia Subcontractor fair. This initiative, where a group of manufacturing companies from the Skövde region come together to exhibit as one unit, strengthens both the cooperation and increases their presence.
Skövde's gaming industry continues to show impressive growth with a noticeable increase in turnover and profits compared to the previous year. This is according to new statistics from Dataspelsbranschen. The 36 gaming companies in Skövde had a combined turnover of over 2.7 billion (1.8 billion in 2021) and made a profit of almost 1.3 billion (about 1 billion in 2021).
