Last week I talked with a startup that had struck a deal with a tech company, for a percentage of the startup the tech company would build their product.
When I asked how their product process was, the founders of the startup looked like at me like a big question mark. “But the tech company is building our product.” It turned out that the founders didn’t have a clue about the process from idea to product, didn’t have anybody in their founder team with any experience building products. …
Throughout my career I have always been involved with product management in one way or another. I also have had various roles in leadership, but in my current role as VP of Growth at Trustpilot it’s my first time combining the two, leading product managers.
I co-founded Firmafon six years ago, together with Harry Vangberg and Peter Engelbrecht. From two 21-year-old boys in a small apartment to 30 employees buzzing in our HQ — what a ride! But every great ride comes to an end.
Thus, I’ve stepped down from my daily involvement in Firmafon.
We’re no longer a startup; we’re a grown-up business with big numbers, healthy growth, extremely low churn and one of the highest customer service ratings I’ve ever seen: that’s what I define as success.

For the last few years my interrest in motorcycle adventures has grown from a small dream of Swedish forrest roads to dreaming about doing a trip around the world.

The plan is to…
I use scanner apps on my iPhone daily, every time I use one there is a action involved after I have scanned something. It could be to “archive in X Dropbox folder” or “E-mail to accounting with X subject” etc. None of the iPhone apps I have tried solves this for me.

My dad has always been a caveman. He loved his allotment and he lived there all year round, hacking the little cottage into an optimized miniature home. He loved to hide from his family on Christmas Eve, with a good bottle of wine and nobody to disrupt him while he enjoyed his old worn-out LPs. His caveman mentality was grounded in many things: he was manic depressive and an alcoholic, but his lifestyle was different in so many other aspects.
I start and build companies, love great products and adventures on my motorcycle. Focus on enjoying life while never settling for the present
