As Head of Venture Building, Emil is responsible for Katalysen’s engagements with our venture clients.

Emil began his career at the fintech venture First Circle in the Philippines as a business analyst, after which he moved back to Sweden to work as a strategy consultant focusing on growth. Through a scholarship from the K-A Bonnier Foundation, Emil subsequently graduated with two master’s degrees, one from the National University of Singapore – focusing on international business – and one from his previous home school Stockholm School of Economics – focusing on innovation management. During his time in Singapore, Emil worked at the strategy consultancy and venture capital firm HYPE Ventures, assisting startups with their market entry efforts across SE Asia.
