I've built companies from the ground up, directed FDI projects in emerging markets, evaluated companies and opportunities, planned and defined growth strategies, advised blue-chip firms, and delivered scale-up solutions.

I've worked with Founders and Investors as a Corporate Developer, Venture Partner and Project Manager across numerous projects and countries.

I've expanded Nordic companies to Russia and other CIS-countries, leading expansion projects and the transformation of ideas and opportunities into million dollar revenue companies in tough and fast-developing markets. I've researched, defined and successfully implemented growth strategies. I've raised capital and formed Joint Ventures and Strategic Partnerships - and I've sat on both sides of the table, raising capital for projects and companies, as well as evaluating and validating investment opportunities. But I also have experience of strategy consulting large corporates, building financial models, researching emerging technology areas for business and strategy, and delivering solutions for blue-chip companies based on agile project management and capabilities to identify and implement solutions.
