With his towering 190 cm, Søren has an overview of the office community. He manages administrative tasks, communication, and the coordination of events. He is usually the guy that responds when you contact

‘For most of my working life, I have held positions with high demands for self-management and decisiveness - today you would probably call it “intrapreneurship”. I have also tried and failed to become self-employed, as I did not manage to reconcile my then life situation with the project. These are some of the experiences I would like to pass on to the members of GROW, where I enjoy providing sparring on the challenges that students face along the way’.
