I was the third founder to come onboard when we founded Northzone in Oslo, 1996.
As I’ve often been described. I started within VC at ABG Sundal Collier & Co – one of the leading independent Nordic Investment Banks. And as a consultant with McKinsey & Co, as well as Accenture.
A few years ago I picked up tennis as a favourite sport, I’m also an eager cyclist and skier. I believe myself to be in better physical shape now than 20 years ago!
