Head of Sustainability, Northzone
Anna Skarborg is Head of Sustainability at Northzone.
Over the past 26 years, Northzone has raised nine funds, counts $1.7 billion under management, has invested in over 175 European and US-based companies, typically at seed, and Series A and B rounds, and clocked 45 exits including Spotify, iZettle, Trustpilot, and Kahoot!
At the age of 28, Anna founded her first company, Upgrades Education. 11 years later together with the Wallenberg Foundations and Oscar Stege Unger, Anna co-founded Canucci, an agency aimed at, "speeding up the transition to more sustainable business models in established organisations through better use of collective intelligence."
Alongside her entrepreneurial skills, Skarborg began her career in impact consulting all the way back in 2007, at a time when the term impact hadn’t quite made the impact that it does today. She’s served as Sustainability Director at multi-national investment and brand operating firm Axel Johnson where she designed and lead the company’s sustainability transformation programme.
