Anita has a passion for entrepreneurship and creating ventures, and it is the process in itself - starting from a vague idea and moving towards building something real that makes a difference in people's lives - that inspires her.

The past 10 years her career has spanned 9 industries including developing an e-learning tools, performing theater for babies, reducing energy consumption,getting 30 engineers to dance to ABBA in front of their co-workers, facilitating solar light business creation, crashing and burning a few startups, organizing entrepreneurial conferences and trying to disrupt the recruitment industry. Oh - she also dropped by 6 universities on the way. And built a race car!

Another passion is presentations and any kind of public speaking. If given a chance to be in front of a crowd, She'll take it. She is considered decently nomadic, though Norway is where most of her physical belongings are, and where she oddly feel somewhat at home.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
