Anniken Fjelberg is the founding partner and co-owner of 657 Oslo, Norway’s largest co-working space for the creative industries, as well as communications agency Superblaise, and the disruptive UT: student agency.
Anniken works actively as a board member and in advisory boards both in the corporate world as well as in the startup ecosystem in Norway. She’s a fierce believer in paying it forward, and does so by being an emerging angel investor and a passionate mentor for entrepreneurs, startups, and students. Anniken recently took part in building the new community #pointnineniners, and through this movement she looks to empower women to choose the investor- and entrepreneurial paths – which are oftentimes interrelated as shown in her own career.
We get a sneak-peak into a female entrepreneur’s life in Norway. Did you know that men have to take at least one month’s paternity leave, and that women get another 11 months’ paid leave ?!?
Great to learn from people in other countries, and bring the best back to our homes.
Have a great 2017 everybody, Edie
