Includes English subtitles. Spirene is a Norwegian show that portrays different Norwegian entrepreneurs. This was the first episode and portrayed my journey so far with Timely.
TV 2 is Norway's largest news channel. The interview took place for the launch of Timely and was sent live. It was my first ever, and so much fun! They even dressed the studio with screenshots.
I had just came back from Silicon Valley for the first time and getting ready to launch something I knew nothing of what would become. The topics range from Timely, Silicon Valley, entreprenurship and more.
Includes English subtitles. NRK Dagsrevyen is the single biggest tv news show to run on Norwegian television. Approximately one fifth of the population sees it.
This particular segment was Sporty, life in Silicon Valley and entrepreneurship. We also used Sporty to find people nearby to actually create a basketball game, which was pretty cool.
Includes English subtitles. NRK Debatten is the biggest political debate program in Norway. I debated Snorre Valen, a politician from SV, about the unfair wealth tax we have in Norway and how it affects Norwegian startups.
Dagens Næringsliv is the largest business magazine in Norway. When they first make a story, they make it properly. The journalist, Line, flew out with a photographer and stayed in Silicon Valley for several days when writing this story.
The photoshoot was also very fun! After traveling down a big cliff, we had to wait until the sun was perfect before starting the shoot. The story really dives into what Silicon Valley is about, especially from a Norwegian point of view. Well worth the read!
TV 2 wrote a story when we announced our first numbers for Timely, and they thought it was going extremely well.
The articles also includes some fun anecdotes from the very beginning and being so small, as well as a random encounter with Jony Ive and me living in a closet (literally) in San Francisco.
VG is Norway's largest online news paper, with one fifth of the population visiting every day. This piece showcased the "hottest" Norwegian entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley.
We also give our top five best advice to making it in when you're starting your company.
Aftenposten is Norway's largest print news paper, and I wrote an op-ed about wealth tax. The story was prominently featured in the paper with a lage two-page story and with a small piece on the front page. It received thousands of likes and shares.
The op-ed was also tweeted by several of the top politicians and also went as far as being mentioned by our prime minister, Erna Solberg, at the Parliament.
When I first got interested from investors, I knew I didn't want to engage in that before later. I politely said I wanted to wait, and instead sold my apartment and put all the money into Timely.
The press liked that, and several different publications wrote about it.
A few days after I was on NRK Debatten debating the wealth tax in Norway, I also wrote a new op-ed, this time published in VG, Norway's largest online paper.
