Henrik joined Northzone in 2016, and is based in the Stockholm office. His main areas of interest are consumer internet, especially companies disrupting media, commerce and digital health, as well as AI and automation in B2B SaaS. Henrik works with companies like Klang, Kitab Sawti, Footway, and NA-KD.
Before joining Northzone, Henrik found his love for data driven product and business development, working in business performance for the mobile games giant King.
“My role enabled me to get a deep understanding of opportunities and challenges in how to leverage data in consumer services, and the interplay between creativity and analytics in a leading games company.”
Prior to King, Henrik was an Associate at McKinsey & Company in Stockholm, focusing mainly on digital, sales, and marketing strategies across sectors such as retail, telecom, finance, and utilities.
Henrik holds an M.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management from KTH in Stockholm, and actually got an early introduction to Northzone, through spending time with portfolio companies Spotify, both in New York and Stockholm, and iZettle, during his studies.
“Having the opportunity to work operationally with two of Northzone’s portfolio companies was incredibly enlightening in understanding what drives success in early stage tech businesses, and I guess you could say it set me on a path to where I am today!”
When not meeting entrepreneurs, or deep in business plan analysis, you will probably find Henrik outdoors, sailing, kitesurfing or skiing, depending on the season.
