A few words

"Having one foot in rural Sweden and the other one in the city by heritage, I understand how the both perspectives can be translated. Together with a multidisciplinary advisory board not only can I advise in marketing and communication but also in development of IT systems and integration, risk and compliance, finance and accounting, hospitality and food & beverage.

The aggregated knowledge is the value I bring to the table to supercharge the businesses that we invests in. 

Capital is fundamentally dumb, but the added value we bring with each investment makes it smart.
