Board Member at The Org
Most of my time I spend on Haflo where we invest in great people, with big dreams. Frog Capital based in London have appointed me Chairman of the Board and I am very excited to work with Mike Reid and his team to provide growth capital for innovative, high-growth companies in the European tech ecosystem. It’s three years since I left my role as General Partner with Creandum which I held for 11 years, but still staying in touch with my old colleagues as a stake holder in previous funds while being a board member of the new Guernsey based General Partner for the 180 MEUR fund. Now I am building my own portfolio of companies born global with founders I believe can make the difference. I like entrepreneurs who understand the concept of “under promise and over deliver” and have the “recruitment power” necessary to attract the people needed to make a success. In Automile I did my first angel investment and I was until Jan 1st 2017 the Chairman of the Board of this promising company now based in Palo Alto, California. Fall 2017 Automile raised a B-round with Insight Ventures (NY) and I got the great opportunity from the founder Jens Nylander to exit and did more than 100x my money. In Oslo based No Isolation I try to help the team solving one of many people’s problem; Isolation and we have started with the children. We have so far raised 3 MEUR and now expanding to cover the European market. As a Chairman and a shareholder, I congratulate Karen and her team with an amazing success in Norway. My portfolio also includes AeroMobile (SL) and ZeroPoint (S) and some UK and US based funds.
