Daniel Ek

Daniel is a serial entrepreneur and technologist who started his first company in 1997 at the age of 14. He is currently the CEO of Spotify, which he co-founded in 2006 together with Martin Lorentzon.

Spotify is an award-winning digital music service that gives on-demand access to over millions of songs, wherever you are. The music service makes it easier than ever to discover, manage and share music with friends, while making sure that artists get a fair deal. Spotify is available on the computer, smartphone, and a whole heap of other devices from Android to iPod.

Prior to Spotify, Daniel founded Advertigo, the online advertising company acquired by TradeDoubler, having previously held senior roles at Nordic auction company Tradera (acquired by Ebay). Daniel was also CTO at Stardoll, the fashion and entertainment community for tweens.
