Christian Jönsson, Consultant
I joined Ascend as a consultant earlier this year after spending the past 2.5 years working with digital growth at a global yet entrepreneurial organization in London. Having previous experience of working with a start-up, it felt like a natural step to join Ascend – another truly entrepreneurial organization. Working in smaller organizations where you can impact and shape the company’s future is something I genuinely value – which Ascend can provide. Moving from a global company in London to a small management consultancy firm in Stockholm has been a good change of environment.
As Ascend is a small and non-hierarchical company, you are always at the heart of things. I have had the opportunity to work on various external and internal projects so far and will hopefully continue to work with such variation and broadness. Being able to combine management consulting with venture partner initiatives and achieve the results we do, despite being a small organization, is really impressive.
To be completely honest, I was a bit nervous and anxious about onboarding a new company during an ongoing pandemic where virtual hang out is the new normal. Luckily, this anxiety never became a reality. I believe it is because of the great team spirit and culture we have here – an inclusive and fun environment with an entrepreneurial mindset. I am truly looking forward to being a part of this journey going forward!
