Björn Flintberg is the former marketing director who left his management position in a publically listed company after a car crash to become an entrepreneur. In 2010 he started up his life’s dream: Building a large mobile IT company. Success followed success and the sky was the limit. Three years later, the company was bankrupt and he had filed for divorce. Refusing to yield his spirit as entreprenur, Flintberg didn’t give up. Instead, he collected his experiences and wrote a book on failure and bankruptcy. Now he challenges the government to adopt a national strategy for handling failure and wash away the shame and guilt stamp of failing in entrepreneurial ventures.
Björn Flintberg’s talk “Kraschen” will be held in English on Monday, March 30th, 16:30 – 17:45 in G2.
