Itzinya is a program that help you get started with an operating business as quickly as possible. Our incubator is at Hospitalsgatan 12 in Norrköping and we are focused on you who are new in Sweden. Thanks to cooperation with the Municipality of Norrköping and some additional sponsors, the program is free of charge.

The name Itzinya simply means: It’s in you. We’re using that name because the program focuses on bringing out the entrepreneurial qualities that you already have in you.

We start the 5th group on 20 August. The introductory program is 4 months at part time. You can apply for the program, if you have newly arrived in Sweden or have been here for a long time. You have to have received your residence permit in Sweden though. Even if you are under ”Etableringen” you can apply since it will be seen as ”activity” from Arbetsförmedlingen. We will run the program in Swedish but Khaldoun who is the facilitator also speaks Arabic and English.


In Itzinya you will get advising and coaching from individuals with experience and passion for entrepreneurship. The entire program is very practical. We want the participants to use this period to kick start their business and would like them to set out their first invoices before the program is over. Our premises will also be your office where you have the opportunity to work with your ideas daytime, evenings and weekends if you wish. You will have many practical tasks where you always will work on your own business ideas. It is quite in order that the idea alters during the program and it is ok to change to a completely different idea.

You are welcome to call Khaldoun if you have questions: 073-335 95 98. He speaks Swedish, English and Arabic.

This project is a collaboration between Itzinya, Municipality of Norrköping, Norrköping Science Park, Nyföretagarcentrum Norrköping, Portalen and Idéfabriken.
