About Gustaf

I'm a Swedish guy who just recently relocated with my wife and daughter from Stockholm to the Sonoma in the north SF bay area where my wife is originally from.
Previously to living in Sweden the past 5 years I was residing and working in Shanghai China and Taipei Taiwan where I had the opportunity to get great experience and network within industrial electronic ODM's and I got strong skills in manufacturing, supply chain and product development.

I have entrepreneurial experience as CEO, CTO and business development manager.
Currently I am looking to connect with entrepreneurial people or businesses within IoT, embedded tech, Agtech, telematics, wearables or other innovative technology areas. I'm thinking about what to do next in my career.

During my time in university studying system informatics I had side jobs in tech that eventually got me joining a startup in the industrial embedded industry. This startup was a pioneer within the logistics IoT area in Europe. This is where I got to learn most of my business experience. Starting my career in computer assembling/building I ended it - managing the company as their CEO. It was a very fun and learning journey with many ups and downs. It has also brought me the opportunity to travel, explorer and live in parts of the world that I never heard of before. During my time living in Asia I was also doing consulting work for various type of companies needing their local presence in Asia, giving me insights and experience in the "non-tech" industry.

I am really good at learning and understanding new technologies. I have a wide knowledge spectra in computers spanning from computer security, Unix/Linux, programming, industrial embedded hardware development and computer manufacturing.
I like to break patterns, do things in an alternative way. I get inspired by sceptics and no-sayers proving them wrong. :)
