About Göran

I’m a co-founder, startup engineer, micropreneur and philosopher currently living in Stockholm, Sweden. I am a fan of entrepreneurship, sailing and programming. I’m also interested in floorball, skiing, science and innovation.

I co-founded a computer reseller company back in 1991 and a hosting company in 1995 and built a lot of websites and also worked with several startups around 2000. After that, I built a content management system, an artisan brokering marketplace, a mobile JavaEE game e-commerce site, different membership sites, an iPhone app to record phone conversations and a service to forecast the Swedish OMX stock market.

Then I thought it would be easy to build a SaaS for static websites so to live my micropreneural pipe dream I built https://appernetic.io and are currently improving and marketing the service, which is anything but easy.
