Since 1999 I have been involved in startups. I focus on high potential start-up companies, primarily within IT. I've cofounded Sepior (protecting cloud data against hacking), CodeSealer (patented obfuscation technology to protect online/mobile transactions), Penneo (cloud-based electronic signature software) and MotilityCount (home-test kit for analysing male fertility). I am also seed investor in Recon Instruments (heads-up display technologies for action sports). I dedicate a significant part of my time to help other startups, via my employment as external lecturer at Copenhagen Business School where I teach entrepreneurship, and via pro-bono coaching and mentoring of other entrepreneurs. My educational background is a MBA from INSEAD in France and Singapore, and an MSc in Marketing from Copenhagen Business School.
Specialties: Start-ups, entrepreneurship, venture capital, business angels, financing, fundraising, strategy, mergers & acquisitions, financial analyses, due diligence, general management, business development.
Sepior enables organizations to encrypt data going into cloud solutions in a very flexible manner, and takes care of the related encryption key management.
Sepior offers an ideal solution in the form of a pure cloud-based key-management solution that uses strong encryption and does not rely on trust in any third party; neither does it require any on-premise hardware or software as the encryption gateway.
For providers Sepior delivers a Key Management as a Service that seamlessly integrates into your SaaS/cloud solution.
The first product enables organizations to encrypt data going into web-based storage solutions (Dropbox, Box, Google Drive etc.).
