I am is a 27 years old Swedish entrepreneur and competition geek based in Stockholm, Sweden.
I work with creating different methods for using competitions and challenges to motivate people and incentivize action in organizations, both on a high and low level.
I love competing, was named Student of the Year in Sweden 2008 and has won numerous national and international academic competitions, such as WWF Global Perspectives, the St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award 2007 , Stena Zero Waste Award 2008, Student of the Year in Sweden 2008 and Venture Challenge 2011 and many, many other large and small competitions.
Based on my interest for competitions, I co-founded Student Competitions AB in 2010, a company that helps companies and Universities to organize global challenges, primarily for students. Previously, I was CEO of Filehill, Scandinavia’s largest marketplace for digital goods.
I am a firm believer that challenges and prize competitons are great tools to incentivize action among people. By systematically posing challenges at both a micro- and macro level, I believe challenges and competitions can be used as extremely powerful tools of change.
