LEAD's Network & Partners
LEAD has several different types of partners, which support LEAD and LEAD companies with different services and offers
LEAD has established a number of long-term collaborations with strategic partners that provide services in, for example, law, auditing, patents, prototype development, insurance and board work.

LEAD Premium Partners
LEAD is currently working on developing an Advisory Board with key business people from each regional area of strength to strengthen knowledge and skills within each focus area. The goal is for LEAD Advisory Boards to provide LEAD companies with cutting-edge expertise, industry insight and advice in strategic decisions.
LEAD coaches, we don’t invest – that’s why we see investors as important partners. In principle, all growth companies need capital at some stage in their development. Therefore, LEAD has a close collaboration locally in the LEAD Business Angels network, but we also cooperate with major venture capital companies both nationally and internationally. For you as a member company at LEAD, we facilitate meetings, network meetings, pitches and contacts at the right time and to the right person, when your company is mature.
Membership in SMIL
As a member of LEAD, you also become a member of SMIL – Small Businesses in Linköping. SMiL is a network for knowledge-intensive companies in the Linköping region.
