Thanks to our always supportive parents association, VRG students were able to take part in an interview with Niklas Adalberth.
Niklas, one of the founders of Klarna, joined us for a personal and engaging interview. Moderated by VRG Economy student, Daniel Sternegård, Niklas talked about his path from high school student to successful business person. He shared personal anecdotes about his own successes and not so successful efforts. He talked about entrepreneurial thinking and risk-taking, as well as decisions he has made along the way that have shaped where he is today. In addition, he shared how his values have influenced the different steps he has taken while growing his company. He answered questions from the audience as well – the role of Sweden in the global market, how to expand a simple idea to something great, start-up advice, which subject knoweldge and skills are most important to have, and more. Here are a few of the many memorable quotes from the interview:
Thanks to Niklas and to our Parents Association for helping our students have the opportunity to learn from a real entrepreneur!
