Our offers


eXpression Umeå is for anyone with a business idea in the artistic, cultural and creative industries and who has a clear drive to develop their passion into a sustainable business. We offer an effective and innovative incubator method, a creative coworking environment and world-class labs.

In our incubator environment, you as an entrepreneur will have the chance to test and develop your business idea, innovative power and creative skills. It is not only the company, the business model or the idea that is in focus, but also you as an individual - therefore it is important to get the chance to test and develop your entrepreneurial skills and grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur.

We do this together, by participating in business development programmes with other entrepreneurs, in coaching sessions with our experienced coaches and by building relationships and networks with the outside world.
