My journey

Laura fell in love with tech investing on day one. She has a particular passion for startups enabling companies to become data driven, building the “Future of Commerce” or revolutionizing industrial industries. Before moving into VC, she spent most of her career in operating roles in the scale-up and start-up world. She was a co-founder of the market intelligence platform, Previro, and before that, growing the knowledge broking firm AlphaSights’, business across the Nordic markets. She started her career in consulting in international trade and development. She is a graduated from Lund University with a B.Sc. in Business and Economics and a M.Sc. in Strategic and Financial Management. Outside of work, Laura is a true foodie and enjoys hitting the tennis court or ski slopes.

One fact

On the back of my CV there is an array of sales roles. From the age of 10, I’ve sold anything from salami sausages to razor blade subscriptions and energy contracts, spent numerous hours knocking doors, in call centers and chasing people on the high street. I always encourage young people to start working in sales and service roles early on; you’ll develop skills you’ll use for the rest of your life.
