Stefan Bruun, the managing partner of Nova Founders Capital, has been included on an exclusive list of Asia’s top young entrepreneurs.
The 27-year-old Dane, who lives in Hong Kong, was listed along with 29 other budding entrepreneurs in the ‘Finance and Venture Capital‘ category in the Asian edition of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 2016.
“It makes me incredibly proud,” Bruun told DR.
“Although the award is given to just one person, it is a result of the initiatives we have started as a group.”
In 2014, Berlingske Business named Bruun one of Denmark’s 100 top business talents.
Invested in samlino.dk
The young entrepreneur holds an undergraduate degree from CBS.
Before joining Nova, he spent a short period at Morgan Stanley in London and later worked as vice president at Groupon Asia and as managing director at Rocket Internet.
Nova Founders Capital invests in companies within the finance technology sector.
In Denmark, the company has, for instance, invested in samlino.dk, an online platform where users can compare various financial services, such as car insurance, mobile phone subscriptions, consumer loans and more.
