Johannes was born in Stockholm 1982 and has always loved adventures and to build stuff, with Botanium he can both build stuff and run a business adventure. He studied mechanical engineering and has been working with product development for about 15 years.
He really likes the creative part and to find the best compromise between all aspects you have to consider making a physical product. He has always known that he wanted to run his own company, and when he was young he had a small business selling queue tickets in liquor stores, selling Christmas cards and making his own wine. On his free time he loves to sail, be on a boat with friends, ski or play golf.
