International Women's Day 2021 – Interview with EIC Advisory Board member Anita Krohn Traaseth: “The best way to contribute to change is to be part of the change yourself”

The EIC created a new Story | 2 months ago

Anita Krohn Traaseth is a Norwegian business executive, writer, former CEO of Innovation Norway and EIC Advisory Board Member. One of Scandinavia's most successful businesswomen knows from personal experience the importance of resilience and role models. When she was in high school, she wanted to become a writer, but a teacher demotivated the choice, criticising her skills. Anita never felt discouraged by the comments. Quite the opposite. And the proof was published in 2014, when the first book Anita wrote: Godt nok for de svina – Good Enough for the Bastards - became a Norwegian bestseller. Today she combines her writing passion with a successful business career and shares often personal experiences to inspire other women to pursue their dreams. On International Women's Day, we sat down with Anita Krohn Traaseth to discover her journey.
