Following a search among the top Nordic competencies in Silicon Valley, Silicon Vikings Board of Directors selected Swedish Adiba Cremonini as the organization's new Executive Director. Silicon Viking’s celebration of 15 years in business includes the objective to take on an even stronger role as the most prominent networking and collaborative member organization connecting the Nordic countries to Silicon Valley. Hiring a new Executive Director is one step in establishing that role. Strengthening the brand by rebuilding the profile and the value for the organization’s 3 000+ members is another.
"Adiba Cremonini is a multi-talented individual, bringing strong leadership, administrative, marketing, networking and fundraising skills to Silicon Vikings. Cremonini was selected for her strong passion in the innovation, entrepreneurship and business ecosystem of the Nordic’s and Silicon Valley.

Her extensive background, +13 years, in the Swedish Innovation environment, in combination with her clear vision of the organization's potential for moving forward with new programs, Chapters and initiatives, indicates a new lively era for the organization. Going forward, Silicon Vikings will take a role in promoting Nordic startups and entrepreneurs entering the US.
"I am honored and delighted that the board have chosen me as the organization's new Executive Director. I have a true passion and interest in the Nordic Regions innovation, tech and entrepreneurial capabilities and issues" says Adiba. “I’m excited at the prospect of leading Silicon Vikings into a new phase, as it is the foremost and well known organization for networking, knowledge exchange and collaborations between the Nordic Region and Silicon Valley”.
