Andreas built his first computer when he was 12 and created his first app, Smøretips, at the age of 15. One evening when Andreas laid in bed, he checked his phone. The app was number one in the sports category in Norway! He jumped out of bed realizing he needed to study informatics so he could learn more than from just watching YouTube videos.
Being number four on the waiting list to informatics, Andreas got on the train to Trondheim thinking he could talk his way into a spot at the Bachelor’s program. It didn’t work. With nowhere to go he was standing in front of Hovedbygningen at NTNU Gløshaugen thinking: “What am I going to do now?”
He somehow knew he had to stay in Trondheim, walking down towards the pier, where BI was located. “Hey, can I start here tomorrow?”, he asked.
After taking economics courses for a year, he finally started his informatics studies, finding UKA and the startup community along the way. Always having wanted to start his own business, NSE became a motivating challenge after finishing the Bachelor’s degree. Andreas loves to work with technology to help people in their everyday lives. When he is not in front of the computer he likes climbing, skiing and the occasional DJ-gig.
