Louise Opprud Jakobsen
Louise is in charge of product development & International activities at the Lab. She delivers international "band-width" to projects, events, conferences and believes strongly in the words heard at an upcoming hacker-space in Brooklyn "awesome attracts awesome". With this in mind she and co-founder Mads, are expanding Innovation Lab with new destinations all under the headlines of GREAT people, GREAT places & GREAT projects.
Louise has been with Innovation Lab for the past 4 years, spending on and off time in California as the Lab Agent ”on site” in Silicon Valley where everything happens. She has worked for the Danish Foreign Ministry and Innovation Center Denmark in Palo Alto, helping Danish IT start-ups facilitate their market entrance, take a good look at their business model and fit their strategy. All while trying to capture and learn anything possible about the worlds greatest innovation ecosystem and connect with the awesome minds in it.
Louise has a B.Sc in Business Development and focused her attention towards Technology-based Business development during her Master. When in Denmark and not found at Innovation Lab, she will probably be cheering the bikers joining one of her 3 weekly spinning-classes, cooking raw food in the penthouse or browsing through weekend-getaway options.
