“Never sell the technology, sell the value that it brings.”
Calin is our resident Viking. Joining us from Norway, he leads our sourcing and networking in the Nordics. He has made his way around the Dutch and Nordic ecosystem: first as a founder, then leading expansion for venture-backed scale-up No Isolation, and finally as a fundraising adviser for start-ups and mature companies. Founding his own company and advising others opened his eyes to the art – and importance – of the sale, “You can build the best product, but it’s not going to sell itself.”
A hard one to pin down, Calin moves between instinct and data. He is valued for the strength of his convictions, spirit to speak his mind, and love for saunas.
