On Wednesday 19 November, Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist attended Fryshuset's seminar and the Sweden's Young Entrepreneurs 2014 prize-giving ceremony.
Sven Heijbel began the evening by speaking on the theme of What is happiness? Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist were then welcomed to the stage to present the 2014 Idea of the Year award.
The 2014 Idea of the Year award was presented to Negin Azimi for her TEDxYouth@Stockholm idea. The jury's reasons for awarding the prize were as follows: "Negin is passionate about entrepreneurship and change. Through her work to develop her idea, she has shown that age is not a success factor. Instead, a go-ahead spirit, determinedness and inner drive are what is needed in order to make a difference. She has been in contact with giants such as Google and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise at the age of just 16 – something that much older and more established entrepreneurs can often only dream about."
Gina Dirawi then spoke on the theme of overcoming fears, and Kodjo Akolor spoke about the art of self-belief.
During a panel discussion, rapper Silvana Imam, video director Nikeisha Andersson and entrepreneur Babak Azarmi spoke about daring to believe in oneself and how setbacks can be a positive thing from which we can learn.
Fatime Nedzipovska received the Social Improver of the Year award, and the Business of the Year award was presented to Anton Håkansson from Snailday.
Social entrepreneur and founder of Banglabarn Leo Razzak was the evening's master of ceremonies.
The dance company Ohyra and hip hop artists LL&CC performed during the evening.
Fryshuset Inc arranges Sweden's Young Entrepreneurs each year to promote young people's ideas and to find the big entrepreneurs of the future.
