Q&A with Tobias Svenlöv
CEO & Co-Founder @ Millijoin
What are your plans for the future?
I hope to work with Millijoin and see it grow to the potential I know it has for the next 10 years. I don't want to think further than that for my own sanity.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
I've always been a rebel of sorts. Causing problems for everyone. Even though it's been solutions. I've never been a great employee because I lead and take charge everywhere I go and that's scary for most senior managers. So creating my own company is basically my only option. And luckily for me it's the best option :)
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
We want to take communication to the next level and improve customer experience everywhere. It's going to be a tough mission since we are dealing with a new type of behavior, but we are super excited and humbled to have this opportunity.
Describe your perfect day at work.
I want everyday to be different. If it's the same I will get bored. Burgers for lunch can be a daily thing though.
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
Go out and fail. Learn to "love it". Ask a boy or a girl out on date that you know will turn you down. Apply for jobs that you can't get. Build up a tolerance for rejection. Be humbled by it, but also use it to your advantage later on. And always be happy and positive! Without it you ain't getting anywhere.
