Ludvig Bengtsson, Consultant
I joined Ascend in the beginning of 2020 and have since experienced the entrepreneurial spirit of Ascend. We are constantly looking for ways to develop ourselves and the company we work at, with the goal to build the best possible version of Ascend. I am a person who is driven by exploring, experiencing, and learning new things. Therefore, I truly enjoy working in this type of organization.
I studied at KTH and during my studies, I had the opportunity to co-found and lead a fintech start-up incubated at KTH Innovations – a challenging but amazing experience. After graduating, I joined a management consultancy firm where I primarily focused on growth in companies of all sizes. Although I found it very motivating to help clients in different industries and to deep-dive into specific areas to find solutions to their biggest problems, I missed something – the entrepreneurial part. At Ascend, I feel that I have the possibility to combine the best of those two worlds.
Since joining Ascend I have been part of a new initiative called AVP – Ascend Venture Partner. At AVP we help start-ups, scale-ups, and investors to enable long-term sustainable growth by offering high quality consulting services, industry network and capability building. Our engagements vary from deal sourcing for investors, to capital raise and go-to-market strategies for start-ups and scale-ups.
I really enjoy working with finding the right companies, learning about their innovations, and finding ways to help them accelerate their growth. Ascend might not be the largest organization but it is impressing to see the results we can achieve with our experience, expertise, and network!
