A little earlier you heard that the Swedish economy is doing fairly well. One reason for that may be the country's entrepreneurs. Sweden has become known for tech-savvy, self-employed visionaries launching companies that cater to a global market.

Radio Sweden spoke to Shahan Lilja, who is in California where he is the only Swede training in a summer program sponsored by the likes of NASA and Google. The program is supposed to train the students in meeting some of the world's most "pressing" challenges. Shahan told us why he thinks Swedish entrepreneurs are so hyped, we began by asking him what executive training in the Silicon Valley is like.
