Futurist // Advisor
I’ve always been fascinated by physics, technology and the future. I love science fiction in all its forms, and I’m convinced that technology is one of the main drivers of change today. It’s also one of the best sources of opportunities for my investments, as well as inspiration for my writing and speaking.
I’m strategic advisor to European Commissioner Carlos Moedas and the European Innovation Council, working on a new innovation strategy for Europe. I’m also Scandinavian representative of the TechCast Technology Think Tank in Washington DC as well as business and technology advisor to startups as well as large established companies.
Also, as an advisor on technology, strategy and business transformation I’ve had workshops with the management teams of (among other) Air France, Novo Nordisk, Danone/Nutrica, Vestas, the top 10 division leaders at Siemens, partners at major Nordic law firms as well as an informal network of board members and chair persons of some of the largest companies listed at the Nordic stock exchanges.
The European Innovation Council is a proposal of a council with the mission of supporting the commercialisation of technologies in the European Union.
