Are you currently involved in a startup?

Yes, as adviser and board member. I've also successfully started my own company (job board and e-recruitment software) which eventually was acquired by one of the largest players in that domain in Europe.

If yes, what industry is the startup in?

Internet and software.

What is the biggest challenge you've faced taking a startup from concept to market?

Getting the right people to work with me.

Describe your startup philosophy in a sentence (if you have one)

Think big and be ambitious!

Would you be willing to talk at a meetup about your experiences or area of expertise?

Yes, I certainly would be willing to do so. Everyday I talk to startups, being clients of Elance, about how they leverage our platform to build and run their startup. I would be happy to share some of the things I've learned from our clients, how startups can leverage talents on Elance and my personal experiences as an entrepreneur.


I'm Kjetil - a Norwegian guy who's in charge of in Europe. I'd like to learn more about lean startups and network with startups and entrepreneurs in London.
