We’re proud to announce this year's host at Connect2Capital: Günther Mårder of Företagarna, The Swedish Federation of Business Owners.
The charismatic CEO of Företagarna will be hosting this year's event bringing experience, humor and wit to the stage. With multiple management positions from the business world behind him as well as co-hosting the popular Swedish business podcast #företagspodden, Günther is sure to bring a lot of insight to the role as moderator.
As the head of Företagarna, Günther is a very well known face throughout the Swedish and nordic entrepreneurial world. Företagarna is the largest business organisation in Sweden representing the interests of around 70 000 business owners. They are an independent, nonpartisan organisation owned by its members with the mission to promote entrepreneurship, improve the conditions for business owners, and to influence policy makers to simplify regulation to make it easier to start and run a business and to create growth.
"Connect2Capital is an important hub for networking and inspiration for people from all parts of the business. I look forward to two days filled with interesting conversations, exciting meetings and interviews with inspiring thought leaders. It’ll be a delight hosting such a great event. I’ll thoroughly enjoy guiding the attendees through it!” says Günther.
Connect2Capital is the venue that offers growth companies, investors and other actors in funding the ideal place to meet in an efficient and inspiring way.
