Bjørn joined Northzone in 1996, this making him the third man on board, and has been instrumental in fund raising and building Northzone Ventures to a leading Nordic venture capital company ever since.
Described by many as “an analysts analyst” Bjørn has earned his analytical laurels with ABG Sundal Collier & Co - one of the leading independent Nordic Investment Banks - and as a consultant in McKinsey & Co as well as Accenture.
Challenged by Torleifs success in sports, Bjørn has taken his own training to new levels. He now boasts a physical condition “better than ever” according to his own merits.
Bjørn holds a M.Sc. in Business Adm./M.Sc. Economics from NHH in Bergen, Norway (1989).
Bjørn serves as Chairman of the Board of Intility, and as Director in Replisaurus and Imbera. He has also served as Chairman in Stepstone and Nextgentel, and as Director in MCP.
