Today we are officially celebrating three years since our first event in Sweden! It feels surreal to think about all of the amazing events that I've had the honour of attending over the past years. I also feel proud of all that I have achieved with this small business. Our first event was a Movember party on November 30, 2011. Here's a look at some of the highlights of the past three years:
I want to thank the following clients, partners and supporters of Boothie:
My family and Juho-Atte Riikonen, Sara Vataja, Eero Riikonen, Mikaela Färnqvist, Christian Tellin, Hilde Zellman Frandsen, Niklas Lindblad, Oscar Lundgren, Brandon Till, Erik Syrén, Jenny Sandberg, Julia Henriksson, Julia Selander, Nicklas Nygren, Mattias Nordström, Kelly Darby, and Tien Pham
Lunds universitet, Lunds kommun, Lundalogik, Scania, STUDIO, Anagram Live, IDEON Meeting, IDEON Innovation, IDEON, Bromolla Kommun, Sofie and Stefan, Venture Cup, Lizzie and Pelle, Flickor På Teknis, Lund Translation Team, STPLN, Stiftsgården Åkersberg, Studentlund, Lunds Nation, and Radio AF
My absolute favourite memory is when I was doing an event in partnership with Anagram Live at Medicon Village in Lund. The CEO of Medicon Village, Mats Leifland, and Mats Lindroos, Head of Accelerator Divison at the European Spallation Source (ESS) happened to bump into each other right outside of Boothie. They decided they would take a picture together and each of them chose a prop (sunglasses) that matched their brand's colours (and coincidentally their shirts!) In that moment I really understood the power of Boothie to bring people together and build bridges. These two high profile people each got a photo to take back to their offices to remind them that they're neighbours here in innovative Lund.
I would like to leave you all with the words of Mr. Kanye West: "Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness"!
Here's to another three years!
