About this Event

Founder Stories is a series of events where great founders share their journeys with the founders of up-and-coming tech companies.

This time we’re honoured to present Espen Lind

Date: 15. January 2020

Time: 18:00

Espen Lind released his first solo album, Mmm...Prepare To Be Swayed, in 1995 under the moniker, ‘Sway’. His commercial breakthrough came in 1997 with the single “When Susannah Cries” which was a hit in several European and Latin American countries.

He has released several albums and collaborated with artists like Sissel Kyrkjebø and Kurt Nilsen, Alejandro Fuentes and Askil Holm. He has won several Norwegian Grammy Awards (Spellemannsprisen), including Artist of the Year in 1998.

During the past few years Espen Lind has done a lot of writing and producing, most notably as co-writer of “Irreplaceable” by Beyoncé and “Drive By” and “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train (which they received a Grammy for).

Together with writing partner Amund Bjørklund in the production team Espionage he has also written and/or produced songs for artists Lionel Richie, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown and Leona Lewis.

Founder Stories

Founder Stories is a series of events where great founders share their journeys with the founders of up-and-coming tech companies.

SNÖ facilitates and moderates the event series. We believe it’s crucial for new entrepreneurs to meet their idols, their guiding stars and mentors. Entrepreneurs need to fuel their ambitions and hopes, and they need to see what hard work combined with brilliance might lead to. And this is something we really want to contribute to. We’re in the business of supporting the tech superstars of tomorrow, and this is part of it.
