Sophia is Hanson Robotics’ latest and most advanced robot to date and a cultural icon. She has become a media darling, appearing on major media outlets around the world, igniting the interest of people regardless of age, gender, and culture, even gracing the cover of one of the top fashion magazines.  Her press coverage has a potential reach of over ten billion readers in 2017

Sophia is an evolving genius machine. Her incredible human likeness, expressiveness, and remarkable story as an awakening robot over time makes her a fascinating front-page technology story. She has met face-to-face with key decision makers in banking, insurance, auto manufacturing, property development, media, and entertainment. In addition, she has appeared onstage as a panel member and presenter in high-level conferences, covering how robotics and artificial intelligence will become a prevalent part of people’s lives. Her reputation extends beyond business into the global social arena. She was named the world’s first United Nation Innovation Champion by United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and will have an official role in working with UNDP to promote sustainable development and safeguard human rights and equality.

Hotellkonge og gründer Petter Stordalen startet sin karriere som jordbærselger, og endte opp med å eie en av de største hotellkjedene i Norge. Det å være en av Norges rikeste menn er bare en bonus.

Etter å ha blitt kåret til “Norges beste jordbærselger” av Porsgrunn Dagblad, bestemte han seg på et tidspunkt at han hadde større ambisjoner i livet enn å jobbe med butikkledelse fra ni til fem hver dag. Det startet med ett hotell, nok et konkursbo, to ansatte og en plan om å kjøpe ett nytt hotell hver 14. dag, samt å øke bemanningen med 50 nye ansatte hver tiende dag. Tre år senere hadde de over 100 hoteller og 5000 ansatte i det som nå heter Nordic Choice hotels.

The Red Bull Nordics journey started in 2008 with the business consolidation and turn around for the Swedish and Finnish markets, especially in developing the Swedish market to the key volume driver for the region. In 2009 the breakthrough came with opening the new markets and subsidiaries in Norway and Denmark (and setting up Iceland via a strong distribution partner).

Analyzing the right route to market strategies; founding subsidiaries and developing lean but strong organizations and continuously developing long term oriented business plans is driving the Nordics. Essential for my work is to drive a value orientated business strategy, benefitting consumers and customers as well as developing our people.

The Nordics are still a market full of opportunities and growth potentials. With an entrepreneurial mindset, strong leadership and creativity I like to give wings to the Nordics.

Arne Krokan is a Norwegian professor in «Teknologi, kommunikasjon, organisasjon og ledelse» at NTNU, and is heavily involved in the IT focus at the institution.

He has been working on the project «Smart learning» since 2013. Its goal is to aid the digitalisation of learning at NTNU and the education sector in general. Fall 2013 he opened Norway’s first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). One of the subjects he was lecturing in «Teknologiendring og samfunnsutvikling», was offered purely as an online course. Krokan decided to use the opportunity to take the subject to the next level. Close to a thousand students followed the course during spring 2014.

Listed as one of the 100 most influential and impactful people in the Nordics in 2017.

Having been through several investment rounds both as a VC and founder, I have realised that every investment is equally reliant on good investors as it is on good startups. Yet there is an imbalance in most startup ecosystems. There are countless initiatives geared for making startups succeed and become investor ready, but very little emphasis or support towards making investors ready. At Angel Challenge our mission is to introduce, educate and inspire first-time Startup Investors to the world of startup investing.

Fra 2005 – 2007 ledet hun fastnettvirksomheten i Telenors nordiske virksomhet. Hun ble adm.direktør i Conax i 2008 og var der fram til 2011 da hun tok over som adm.direktør for Telenor Norge og igjen gikk inn i Telenors konsernledelse.
