Mikael and his co-founder Johan have dedicated their entire lives to contributing to a positive impact for the sports community through their companies Heja and Laget.se and in this fireside chat we discuss:
⭐️ What are some of the issues youth are facing around the world?
⭐️ How can sports be a channel for positivity and self expression for youth?
⭐️ How did it all start and what's the connection between Laget & Heja?
⭐️ How was the experience of building the companies - challenges, missteps?
⭐️ How did they manage to onboard a massive 200,000 teams on the platform?
⭐️ What does it feel like to impact sports infrastructure in 50+ countries?
⭐️ Has funding been a challenge? How did they overcome it?
⭐️ Where are they headed, and what can entrepreneurs learn from their journey?
The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, Strategic Advisor at the Founder Institute, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
