”We would never have reached as far if it wasn´t for Midscand” During the Capital Market Day of the Swedish tourism industry in 2010 Rörströmsälvens Jakt & Fiske was appointed the most interesting tourism investment of the year. The opinion was that Rörstromälvens Jakt & Fiske could offer a unique experience in the untouched wilderness of northern Jamtland. The target audience is both national and international visitors with an interest for hunting and fishing.
“Calle Suwe at Midscand helped me write the winning business plan and financing, something I couldn´t have done on my own”, says Steinar Mårtensson who is very pleased with the help and support of Midscand.
Steinar signed up for the competition in order to find investors for the business start. After the presentation many investors were interested and in 2011 they welcomed their first visitors.
Kamil & Agnieszka - Björknäsgården Hotel
The Polish couple who bought Björknäsgården in 2011 are now renovating the popular conference hotel making it available for weddings and tourism. “We want to keep up the good standard and give the hotel a more modern feel” says Agnieszka Krynicka.
Both Agnieszka and her husband Kamil are experienced business people. In their home country they have a real estate company as well as hotels. For some time they had followed the selling process of Björknäsgården as well as other properties in Scandinavia and the Caribbean. In the end it was the economic stability of Sweden and the closeness to nature that attracted the couple to Jämtland. The family, whose additional member was born in September, is now looking forward to spending more time in Jämtland. “
"The contact with Midscand has been important in the establishment process. Midscand has acted as a sounding board for issues that came up along the way, as well as a strong bridge with the municipality of Bräcke and other institutions. It's incredibly helpful to have such a great partner in the search for the right solutions, when setting up a business in a foreign country” says Kamil about Midscand.
Recently a limited liability company Norrika AB has been set up to finish the renovation and soon re-open the Björknäsgården hotel.
