Johan Englund joined Industrifonden in 2010 because he wanted to help build successful companies. He has more than 20 years of experience in building and developing ideas and companies in the internet, telecom, media, and entertainment sectors.
Johan’s previous positions include acting as CEO of MTG Modern Times Group’s subsidiary Nordic Artist and as adviser to several leading VC firms.
“Every day, I learn something new from being in touch with all these amazing entrepreneurs,” says Johan. “It takes time to build successful companies, and investing in the right people is crucial. The path to success is never a straight line. It always takes longer than you think, and it’s hard but fun work.”
Outside of Industrifonden, Johan serves as chairman of the board for Enjoy Wine and Spirits and as board member for Di Luca & Di Luca. Johan devotes his spare time to soccer – partly in the soccer club where his teenage son plays and partly in the Stockholm Football Association, where he leads a council tied to the board. “I like adding a little entrepreneurship to sports. It needs that,” he says. He also enjoys reading and spending time in the Stockholm archipelago in the summer.
