Stefan Backlund

Partner & CMO

Stefan brings ample experience and expertise from the world of marketing, meaning that he is a strong asset for all of Katalysen’s partner companies to discuss marketing, communication, PR and commercial related topics with.

Stefan is a mountaineer, turned marketeer, turned venture partner and investor. He recently held the position of Vice President of Marketing & Communications at Trustly, the Pan-European payments company. Stefan started his career in the fintech industry at what today is Europe’s largest unlisted fintech firm, Swedish payment unicorn Klarna, where he was heading up B2C marketing, also on a European level. He studied UX / Interaction Design at the University of Kalmar.

Stefan believes in people, and that people are the number one, two, and three top reasons for building successful companies. Technology follows thereafter.
