I am a 25-year old entrepreneur, at the moment working with my own company for most of my time. During the last five years, I have been studying Biotechnology at Uppsala University, worked at a winery in India (Sula), had a biochemistry research internship in Lyon, travelled around South America, and learned spanish in Buenos Aires and San Sebastian. The last year I attended the School of Entreprenurship in Uppsala – for me the most inspiring year study-wise.
My passions include wine, travelling, and horse-riding. I have two secret talents: to pop popcorn and shoot clay pigeons.
So what does my company do?
Acabo Games is Sweden’s first board game company that focuses on developing knowledge-based board games and pedagogic tools for students and academics. It was founded in 2010 by a group of entrepreneurs and graduate students with a passion for games and learning, who thought that there was a gap in the market. We are eight co-founders in total, but only two are currently working full time, and I am one of them.

Below is a picture from last summer, when we were about to launch our first game The Art of Science. The game in the picture is just a prototype, haha.
