"Creativity is the ultimate renewable resource." - Ravi Naidoo"
I am a passionate, curious, creative and positive girl from the west coast of Norway. I studied industrial design engineering at NTNU when I found out the hard way that designers should know business development and how to communicate their value to the non-designers (read: blue collars). After 8 months living and studying design in Buenos Aires, I started at the Norwegian Entrepreneurship School - a two year master program with eager and dedicated students. We tested business ideas, learned business development in theory and in real life through our own start-ups, applied for grant money, pitched to industry partners and investors, but again - after a summer semester at Boston University School of Management, I figured out that as a designer or an entrepreneur, it really does not matter what the end title at your resume says - it is what you do that matters.
So now I am writing my master thesis in product design expanding the coffee experience. The end presentation is the 30th of January 2014 - and then I am ready to expand my horizons and change the world through playful design and human centered experiences.
