He won the Danish Entrepreneurship Championship – now he sold his share for a penny


This post is also available in: Danish

Andreas is 27 years old, but his entrepreneurial journey includes almost a million in raised capital and several great collaborations. It started during his studies in innovation and entrepreneurship, when he and some friends from his studies had a great idea: they should build robots.

From the outside, everything seemed to be running smoothly, but in hindsight, the reality was different:

“Very early on in the journey, I got a really good mentor who I’ve had many conversations with. I think it was back in October or November when he first said that he actually had doubts whether I was really passionate about my business. My first thought was what the hell was he talking about. But I quickly realized that he was right,” the entrepreneur tells erhvervplus.

After discussing it with several other entrepreneurs, Andreas decided to sell his share for just one penny and hasn’t regretted it since.

Now he is left with an important lesson. Much of his identity and self-esteem was built around his LinkedIn profile. His message is to be careful not to identify your personality too much by what you do, because it can be a tough rollercoaster ride.
