Spotify came out with an open letter bringing up problems with wanting to be located in Sweden, but Sweden nog being compatible for Spotify or other companies (main focus on startups) to grow. Two articles about the open letter, and the open letter from Spotify are linked down below.
Looking at the structure of Spotify, it is clear that Spotify has already begun to move out of Sweden from the beginning. Spotify Technology SA is a holding company incorporated in 2006, based in Luxembourg and is the parent company. Spotify AB is based in Sweden with around 650 employees and handles research and development. Spotify Ltd. is based in England, and operates as the parent company. In total there are 26 offices around the world, and around 1500 employees in total.
What do you think is a better option for Spotify AB (research and development); do be located in Europe, US or Asia?
