Nicklas Bergman has spent the last 20 years working as a serial entrepreneur and investor focusing on emerging markets and technologies. With vast experience from navigating through turbulent and uncertain technology environments, he is a perfect guide when trying to understand what the future will bring.
His focus has mostly fallen on investments in emerging markets, web services, nanotechnology, computing, new materials and new media art. He is the co-founder and largest investor in several companies including the Volvo trucks and buses distribution network in Romania, an electron microscopy company with a unique patented technology for movement and interaction on the atomic scale, and a Scandinavian ski resort development that has attracted investments of over US$100 million in the past few years, and invigorated a whole region in the north of Sweden.
Bergman is also advisor to the TechCast Technology Think Tank in Washington DC, which is trying to understand where we are heading, and if society will be able to handle the upcoming technology revolution. Further, as part of an emerging research project at Lund University in Sweden, Bergman is focusing on humankind’s relationship to technology and technological development, and more specific on the business implications of multi-disciplinary and transformative emerging technologies in the coming 5-50 years.
He takes pride in customising his talks to his audiences and present credible facts in an entertaining manner, always with the goal to surprise and provide insights as well as useful tools.
