I think you can imagine how happy Gustaf Josefsson was a few days ago when he arranged a meeting between YEoS, Svenskt Näringsliv and Sofia Appelgren as a speaker, just look at the picture! Sofia spoke about her wild story between her restaurant Wild’n Fresh and the public trade union. If you have the opportunity to listen to her, do it! Or buy her book.
Nowadays she runs a company called MittLiv which fights for equal rights for young people with a background from foreign countries.
The discussions were great and I think everyone got something out of this event. I also met this young entrepreneur: Sebastian Stjern – A really inspiring guy and founder of The Fair Tailor (in Nepal) which make fair trade and ecological fine custom-made shirts. They also employ persons who due to their past are unlikely to be employed anywhere else – e.g. adult former street children.
He also runs a really great blog for Swedish entrepreneurs called Entreprenörsbloggen – check it out!
