The Newbie Team

While guiding their non-Swedish friends and family through the process of settling down in Sweden, the founders of The Newbie Guide to Sweden realized there was a lack of support for newbies in the public. Primarily because of language barriers but the scattered nature of the information was not making things any better!

So, the founders decided to bridge this information gap by offering guidance, easy to understand information and insider tips on one single platform. And thus with the hope of making immigration of Newbies to Sweden warmer and more conducive, the Newbie Guide to Sweden was born.

Julieta is co-founder and CEO at The Newbie Guide to Sweden. Julieta got the initial idea to The Newbie Guide almost a decade ago thanks to the lack of a surname on a door.

Another feather in her cap is Caligraph Communication, a digital communications company she started in 2011. An avid book reader, Julieta happily rereads books many times and loves to travel but hates to fly.
