Nicklas Bergman has spent the last 25 years working as an entrepreneur and technology investor, mostly focusing on investments and business development in emerging markets, nanotechnology, and computing, amongst others.
A couple of years ago, he cleared his schedule and embarked on a journey to understand where technology is taking us and if we are ready for the upcoming ‘tech storm’. Today, Nicklas divides his time between existing and new technology investments, a couple of his own projects and speaking and writing on the future of technology and business.
He is a strategic advisor to the European Commissioner Carlos Moedas and the European Innovation Council, working on a new innovation strategy for Europe. He is also the Scandinavian representation of the TechCast Technology Think Tank in Washington Dc, working with the World Economic Forum on the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) and a member of both the World Future Society and the Long Now Foundation.
As a writer, Nicklas is very interested in the merger of technology, society and business. In 2016, he published a book on how to deal with new technologies from a business perspective: “Surviving the Tech Storm – Strategy in Times of Technological Uncertainty” (Lid Publishing, London, 2016). With the conviction that technology is probably the strongest driver of change today, it is obvious that anyone in a management position, or aspirations to eventually be in that position, must understand how technology is changing business from the ground up.
