I grew up in Norway and have since lived in Germany, Switzerland, Spain, the Netherlands, England, and Scotland. My career has been very broad and taken me through law, strategy consultancy, venture/private equity investments and finally entrepreneurship, which I have found to be my passion. I have co-founded 2 companies (renewable energy & biotech) and I want to continue my entrepreneurial journey through acquisition.

Core competencies

MY SEARCH

My desire is to acquire a meaningful business (in many senses of the word) and augment its legacy.

I am particularly interested in sustainability and/or in businesses exposed to the aging of society. Geographically I am first and foremost searching in DACH or the Nordics.

My contribution

My background is unusually broad and diverse: law, strategy development and implementation, investment, and entrepreneurship.

I have extensive in developing technology businesses, new product introductions and driving international expansion. My background leads me to believe I have a culturally sensitive mind and that I can lead and motivate a diversified team.
