I build and develop companies in the intersection between strategy, technology, investments and new markets. I work as a Corporate Developer, Project Manager and Venture Partner with mainly Nordic investors and founders pursuing growth and investment opportunities in new markets and countries.
Following my master's studies at the University of Stockholm, Sweden; I worked as a management and strategy consultant with mainly Nordic telecoms and government agencies. Aiming to not only recommend on strategies and investments, but also to implement them, I spent the next few years leading international expansion projects for Nordic companies and investors in Russia and other CIS-countries - which gave me not only the experience of managing fast-growing companies, but also doing business in fast-growing and dynamic markets.
From 2016, I've worked on technology and IT-platform based projects and investments for a boutique Anglo-Nordic investment and consulting firm. In addition during this time, following my passion for technology, business and strategy, I authored and published my book The Rise of Industrial 3D-Printing, which became an industry recommended book.
Since 2021 I work on freelance basis, supporting investors and founders to research, plan and manage investment and company development projects.
On a more personal note, when I'm not working, I enjoy cycling, running, reading, cooking and caring for my wife and our two children.
Please feel free to connect with me on Linkedin. I'm always glad to speak to fellow entrepreneurs, investors and growth-leaders.
