Knut has his academic background from Marine Technology at NTNU in Trondheim. In 2015 he joined Revolve NTNU, where he designed and built the brake system and suspension rods for an electric race car. When the brakes overheated and the suspension broke, he fled to China for a year where he studied Naval Architecture at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Spending a year as an illiterate giant somehow sparked an interest in business development, and after returning to Norway in 2016 he joined NTNU School of Entrepreneurship. With a strict no-nonsense approach to business, he now aims for world domination by June 2018.
