Founder, Co-founder


Ole is a seasoned serial entrepreneur. Previous successful startups he’s headed include IndustriData, Statsjobb, MobileAxept and Tide Forsikring.


With 4 children, Ole saw a disturbing trend in the amount of online bullying that occurs with adolescent use of social media. Kudos is a solution that he hopes will create a massive shift in the way children enter the world of social media.
