Bo-Erik Abrahamsson









Before starting my MBA, I worked for Procter & Gamble in Switzerland and later switched to Twitter in Singapore. I also launched/co-founded Chinofy, Geneva Accelerator, Reading For Change and a few other startups (most of which failed, which means I have a lot to learn in business school).  Studying in Oxford is a dream come true and I’m working hard to make the most out of every single day in this intense program. Feel free to get in touch if you want to talk about entrepreneurship, business in Asia or the Global Shapers program (an initiative of the WEF).

Emerge 2015

The recent Emerge conference brought hundreds of speakers, practitioners, academics and startup leaders to Oxford to discuss issues in Social Entrepreneurship. I was lucky enough to get a ticket (which were sold out) basically by booking the same day as I received my acceptance letter. Among the many talented speakers, James Brett stands out for […]
