Today we have a great interview with one of the founders of the legendary technology Company Skype, Niklas Zennstrom. After Skype, Niklas created his VC fund Atomico in 2006 to help entrepreneurs primarily outside Silicon Valley to scale their businesses domestically and globally. 

Atomico has invested in more than 50 companies on four continents. 

In 2005, Skype was sold to eBay Inc for $3.1bn, the largest European venture capital exit to date. 

He also co-founded Kazaa, Joost and Joltid. In 2007, he co-founded Zennström Philanthropies, to combat climate change, improve the state of the Baltic Sea and encourage social entrepreneurship. Mr. Zennström holds dual degrees in Business and MSc Engineering Physics/Computer Science from Uppsala University in Sweden, and he spent his final year at the University of Michigan.

Let’s listen into Niklas Zennstrom interviewed at Startup Grind Europe by Stu Woo of the Wall Street Journal.
