Being able to test your innovation in a real environment is a critical step in expanding your startup business. A SPARX acceleration program, run by Sodexo in Sweden, has been developed to support startups in the service industry.
“Our goal is to help start-ups enter the market quickly and guide them to their full potential by leveraging our global business network. Our program offers an opportunity for mutual learning. Together with startup entrepreneurs, we are developing the service industry”, says Magnus Löfsjögård, SPARX program manager.
In Sweden, the SPARX acceleration program has been running since last autumn and in Finland, the program was launched in November this year. The first round includes Yonoton’s digital service platform and LeViteZer, a provider of space optimization solutions.
Yonoton is a versatile digital service platform for ordering and purchasing. The company’s SaaS services are used in a wide range of sectors from restaurant and hotel chains to amusement parks and mass events. Yonoton has been providing digital services to Sodexo Finland since spring. SPARX is intended to accelerate the roll-out of Yonoton services in other Sodexo countries.
