Maria Amelie loves to disrupt narratives, nerd about entrepreneurship and will some day sail to Antarctica to hang out with penguins 🙂
On a more serious note, Maria Amelie is an award-winning writer of four books on immigration, freedom of speech and entrepreneurship. Amelies goal is to disrupt narratives, and in 2018 she is writing a book on how migrant founders are shaping the economy of Europe and the world - startupmigrants.com
Her first book came out when she was 24 years old. This book boosted a huge debate and a movement on refugees and contributed to a law change on immigration in Norway. At 29, after working as tech-journalist for four years, she was awarded Best Startup Journalist for her articles on growing ecosystem in the Nordics. In 2015 she took a leap of faith and started her own company, crowdfunded and published her 4th book on successful Norwegian tech-founders and their best advice, or as many call it the Startup Bible.
These days Amelie is representing Norwegian entrepreneurs as a fellow of Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative, a program of the U.S.Department of State in partnership with the German Marshall Fund of the United States. She is also a sought after public speaker and have spoken at TedX, Google, Circle of Top European Communicators, Heroes Conference, BI Business School, Police School.
