SACC-SF/SV former intern Axel Krottler is about to start his second internship in Silicon Valley – this time at Ericsson. 

“I look forward to learning more about 5G and American Culture.”

Ericsson is one of several corporate partners that have discovered the benefits of SACC-SF/SV’s internship program.

“We have had great experience of having Swedish interns at our innovation center in Santa Clara”, said Jan Söderström, Head of Technology Office Silicon Valley at Ericsson.

At the Chamber in San Francisco, Axel Krottler worked with partnership and business development. In his new role at Ericsson, he will part of the marketing and communication team at D-15 Labs in Santa Clara.

“My internship at the Chamber has been incredibly developing, and I am very much looking forward to continuing my journey at Ericsson”, he said.

Axel Krottler will take over the baton from the previous intern Isabelle Edenborg, who did an internship at SACC-SF/SV during the spring of 2019 and then continued to Ericsson.

The Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company Ericsson is headquartered in Stockholm but has campus in several locations in the US and, around the world.
