doing business with people
generation of entrepreneurship
Product and solution innovation
Since I was a kid I love creating and building new things. I think I started my first "business" when I was 13. My particular added value to the world is to be able to understand business needs and processes and to build bridges to the tech side and get it done.
A key philosophy is that people do business with people. I am lucky, as I have always worked with people that were much smarter than me. All my great life lessons comes from interacting, learning and working with key people and I get enriched with every interaction. Those people are both customers, business partners and colleagues alike. To me, it's all the same.
Together we have created products, services, and delivered solutions that have been part of changing companies and industries.
MY FIRST BUSINESS
When I was 13 years old, my friend Robin and I decided to make some pocket money. We were going to start a snow shoveling service in our neighborhood. We decided we would make a flyer. Hand it out door to door. Get some customers. Do the work. Get some money. Spend the money. Live the good life. The company name: "No More Snow on the Fortorv" (Danish for pavement). Unfortunately ... that winter we didn't get a lot of snow.

The thing which inspires me the most is doing business with people. Real people that thrive on growth and execution like myself. To get to know their story, to learn from them and to face new challenges together with every new meeting.
Like everybody else, I love my free time. My family, especially my children and grandchildren, friends, and all the people surrounding me are an enrichment for my daily life and inspires and freakting challenges me every day in a new way. I love basketball as I ever did. Or rather all the learning and valuable experiences that derived, and that I now recognize in all the important spheres of my life.
I love food. Thats it! In Denmark our restaurant scene has torpedoed to the top of the world stage. I am part of one small player of the industry. Our lovely little El Tapeo. Located in a uniquely amazing old building in the heart of Copenhagen, the restaurant is driven by lovely people who are passionate about incomparable delicious and unique vines from Spain accompanied by fantastic Tapas.
