Q&A with Erlend Aamot
CEO and co-founder @ Kreoz
What are your plans for the future?
We are now in a market clarification phase where we are interacting with early adopters and testing the market demand for our service. When successfully completed, we aim to scale rapidly to become the leading provider globally of digital art experiences.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
To quote Jobs, to 'make a dent in the universe'. Also, running your own gig is just so much more fun than working for somebody else.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
To democratize art and help people get more visual beauty into their daily lives
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
I used to think that becoming an entrepreneur was all about coming up with some revolutionary idea. Now I realize that, although a good idea helps, the most important is the execution. What makes the difference is pure grit and determination. You can do it if you just put your mind to it and clench your teeth.
