Three talented young professionals have just arrived from Sweden to join our team at the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco & Silicon Valley. We are grateful for the opportunity to learn from them, and at the same give them the chance to kick start their careers. They have introduced themselves below, hopefully, you will soon have a chance to meet them in person.
Linnea Abrahamsson, Events and Sponsorship
I have recently graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Lund University, where I also studied Intellectual Property Rights and Commercial Law. During my student years, I was on the Committee for Lund European Business Tour, and I also pursued my interest in Management, project managing the annual event Match Cup Sweden in Gothenburg.
I have experience of working with events such as America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race and I am eager to create innovative event ideas for the partner companies of SACC-SF/SV.
Axel Krottler, Business Development and Strategic Partnerships
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Management from Lund School of Economics and Management. During my studies, I had an exchange at Oregon State University. I grew up in Nacka, Stockholm, where I am a Member of the Municipal Council. In addition to politics, I have a great interest in Technology and Design and I run a small web agency on the side. My latest position was as a Sales Consultant at Meltwater.
I will be responsible for maintaining and strengthening our valuable Business Relations with current strategic partners, as well as generate leads for potential new partners. If you have any questions about our partnerships or if you have any ideas on how we can improve our organization, please feel free to contact me.

Whilst studying, I was an active member of the Student Union and I served as an Event Coordinator for the global initiative International Week Coordinating Organization. I have also had a promotional position for VentureLab, the University run incubator. Last year, I did an exchange year at the University of California, Irvine, where I became an honor’s student.
