August grew up in Tromsø – a city in the northern part of Norway. When he was a teenager he wanted to become a Premier League star or world champion in cross-country skiing. Now he is 24 years old and he is satisfied with playing soccer in the student league and watching the world championship in cross-country skiing at TV. But do not misunderstand, August is an ambitious and determined person. He holds sergeant education from the Royal Norwegian Navy and four years of Civil engineering from NTNU. At NTNU he has chosen a wide range of courses in disciplines like technology, project management and economy. During studies, he has studied abroad, been active in student organizations and had several internships in consulting firms. August has always been reaching out for challenges and applying for NTNU School of Entrepreneurship was a natural move.
