Working in growth & business development at Spotify, iZettle and mobile games giant, King, I got an induction that fuelled my fascination with data-driven product development, innovative business models and the interplay between creativity and analytics in tech companies.
I placed 5th at the Youth Sailing World Championships. Getting to world championship level took years of dedication. Setting strategy, building the team, honing skills and perfecting execution. The experience influenced the way I think about building businesses today.
Okay, maybe I did. And maybe there’s just too many kitesurfing VCs out there! What can I say? At least this one has a serious sailing career to back it up.
