Minc/Talks - Designing your life / A Modern Success Story
"Being able to combine different lifestyles while growing a successful business takes a lot of courage, stamina and creativity"
Studio Malmö, together with Minc, invites you for a series of Minc/Talks on the topic:
MODERN LIFESTYLE: HOW DOES IT AFFECT CULTURE AND INNOVATION?
For the third talk, we have the Founders & CEOs of Solentro Hampus & Tobias Schildfat. In addition, this talk will count with expert and researcher Sofia Ulver's comments. She'll focus on how these modern stories fit into the grand trends in contemporary society, considering the culture of masculinity in entrepreneural start-up environments. That is, system, gender and status reflections.
Designing your Life / A Modern Success Story
Hampus has for several years been able to, as a father, spend as much time in his daily life with his family as he does on his entrepreneurial endeavour. Tobias has for several years been able to spend as much time abroad to surf and learn more languages as he does on his entrepreneurial journey. Being able to combine these different lifestyles while growing a successful business takes a lot of courage, stamina and creativity - Hampus & Tobias will tell you all about how they made this happen!
