In my role as a Thematic Partner at Summa Equity I work with the investment team in our pursuit of investments that solve global challenges. My primary focus is with our Transformational Technologies team where I drive both origination efforts as well as company follow up, in addition to supporting the investment team on tech-related issues across the portfolio. My first Summa Portfolio Company engagements have been as Board Chair at Pagero, where we are building an open, global and data-centric network to radically improve how transactions flow between the world’s 150 million companies, and Myneva, which is building a pan-European SaaS-based care technology platform with the aim of improving the quality and availability of elderly, social, disabled and youth care as our societies deal with accelerating demographic change.
I am passionate about the opportunity Summa and our portfolio companies have to create superior returns in both financial and social terms. I am particularly optimistic as to how smarter use of existing technology in companies across virtually all sectors can help make both positive and negative externalities visible and hence allow investors, consumers and regulators to appropriately value truly Good Businesses.
Before joining Summa Equity in September 2019 I spent 25+ years in tech, media and consulting roles across Europe and the US. In addition to my work at Summa, I serve on the boards of Nordic Semiconductor, Nordea and PragmatIC. I studied Computer Science at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, Russian language at the Defense School of Intelligence and Security and finance at INSEAD.
