Patrik Arnesson - Co-Founder and CEO, Forza Football
Patrik Arnesson is the Co-Founder and CEO of Forza Football, the Swedish football tech company behind the worlds' second biggest football app, Forza Football. On their main app they have over 5 million downloads and 3 million monthly active users, and cover over 420 leagues worldwide. They also have a newer app that serves as a tool for football clubs to monetize on their content, something which all clubs currently struggle with. Football Addicts’ mission is to democratize football and put football in the hands of the fans.
Please joins us as we discuss Patrik’s journey, from a disgruntled 21-year old startup CEO servicing traditionally driven brands to creating one of the most innovative and sought-after football tech companies in the world. We touch on things such as how to democratize football, what a 93-year old Japanese sushi master can teach app developers and company founders, why company boards don’t make sense, implementing a bottom-up decision making process versus a typical hierarchical pyramid model, saying "no" to $10 billion, closing the doors on prestigious venture capital firms, drinking coffee at Gothenburg’s finest coffee shops, and much more.
