Yesterday I nominated my previous assitant Josephine Sivertzen 21, to the Tillväxtverket and Vinnova Advisoryboard nomination, that is to advise them on how to suppport young peoples innovation. It’s open until the 30th of November, nominate here!
I nominated Josephine due to the fact that she worked for me as an asstistant during my time at SYRUP in Stockholm, and helped me with my projects RunAlong.se and GeekGirlMeetup. The young dudette is a whitty writer, a clever thinker and she understands social media and the art of a good story.
Today I nominted Anton Johansson, 21, BizDev, strategy and communication at the brilliant start-up Twingly. Right now he´s also an aspiring e-commerce entrepreneur with Headler.se. This young dude has the energy of few, is an idea-generator like few and always has the finger on the tech pulse.

Twingly’s summer project is based on their Twingly Live. Twinlgy Boards collects all the Twitter #tags on a certain topic, and visualized it day by day, tweet by re-tweet. The developer behind it, Martin Källström, Twingly´s founder and CEO is responsible for a piece deliciously well executed data visualisation.
Is this the prettiest CSS we have seen in a very long time? Yes. It´s nice to have full control all the way, says Martin Källström about his summer endavours. Yes, a true hacker meets design founder with a mind that “design-like-you-give-a-damn”.
So far it works in Chrome/Safari/Ipad browsers, so keep your eyes open on monday when we try it out at the PolitikerUtmaningen.se. So if you want to see some action, tag #PolitikerUtmaningen or #LiveBoards.
