In January, we pay tribute to and hand out the Boosting the Capital-prize to Carl Kronberg, teacher in entrepreneurship at Bromma high school, Peter Hafmar, CEO Nobina Technology and Fredrik Bergman, temporary CEO for Centrum för Rättvisa (Centre for Justice).
Carl is awarded for his enthusiasm as a teacher and mentor within Ung Företagsamhet (Young Entrepreneurship). By teaching students that reality demands ability to learn from failure, and that entrepreneurship demands a more open mind rather than chasing good grades, you strengthen the competitiveness of Stockholm in the long run.
Fredrik is awarded for his tireless efforts defending individual freedoms as CEO of Centrum för Rättvisa. His engaging work within the area of labor deportations resulted in victory by the Supreme Court of Migration, paving the way for future labor migrants.
Peter is the prime mover behind new, automated buses from Kista Centrum, a project which dares to take a groundbreaking step in to the future. Hopefully, this project will promote new idea and inspire more innovation in transportation-solutions in the capital region.
