Erik Byrenius
They're my friends  •  Investor, Tailor & Tales and Investor, Lingoda GmbH.
I am active in the Swedish startup scene, previously as an entrepreneur and nowadays as an angel investor. I have had the opportunity to get ... to know Elin. Not only is she a positive, friendly and intelligent person, she is also very experienced in areas where I lack experience, making discussions with her very valuable. She is great at understanding big corporations and their relations to the startup world. She is a fantastic networker and can open doors to places it would otherwise be much more difficult to get to, both to big corporations and to people in the startup world, including investors. I can highly recommend Elin as an advisor, as well as investor, business partner and friend.
