Q&A with Henrik Börjesson
CEO @ TeQflo
What are your plans for the future?
To follow our mission and vision building a great company for our customers and employees. Concretely that means growing TeQflo in Malmö by recruitments and new customers. Next we will open an office in Stockholm.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
After climbing high in corporate life I realised is was not fulfilling. I had everything but I was still missing out. Entrepreneurship is my way of serving customers and employees alike for value creation, development and wholeness.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
We are Friends of Digitalisation, we believe in Smart Tech Flowing for Society. Hence, we want to put our skills to good use making organisations, companies and the society better, bit by bit.
Describe your perfect day at work.
My perfect working day starts with a morning excercis dropping the kids off at school after a smooth morning. Thereafter, I wish for a healthy mix of interesting customer work and great collaboration with colleagues and other persons. At night I enjoy family time and reading.
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
First, stay close to customers and the market from day 1 and evolve your products/services around what your learn. It's never too soon to start the marketing of your company/offering. Second, build and invest in a great team which thirdly deserve great leadership. Fourth, when in doubt, take the quickest route to the market. It builds value and improves your chances to success.
