Kari Thor Awarded Founder Of The Year

Kari Thor Awarded Founder Of The Year

On November 1st, 2019 we got the news that our co-founder and CEO Kari Thor Runarsson had won Founder Of The Year in Iceland at the Nordic Startup Awards. That day Kari could celebrate the win with the company he co-founded, as Authenteq also won Startup Of The Year in Iceland. Earlier this year Sifted named Kari one of the 30 Top Tech Innovators to watch in Europe in 2019 so he’s been on a bit of a run.

Well, yesterday Kari also took home Founder Of The Year for the Nordics at the Nordic Startup Awards Grand Finale in Copenhagen. Please join us in congratulating Kari! While he’s not much for praise (and would likely not sanction this post if we’d asked him) his hard work and dedication to Authenteq is the reason we are all here today on our mission to revolutionize trusted identities.

We know that if we would ask Kari Thor for a quote he’d say it was all thanks to the team so we didn’t ask him for one. We know we’re pretty cool too 🙂

Congratulations Kari!
