About

Aurore Belfrage is an Investor, Tech Diplomat, Economist, Digitalization Strategist in a Green Transistion, Political Advisor, Ex-scrap dealer and Aubergine lover & West Wing fan.

Innovation is borderless. A naive statement? Probably, but the opposite is both boring and unhelpful. Cheap(ish) technology, hungry entrepreneurs and skilled investors are moving the needle everywhere.

Stating  the obvious – We all know that we face unprecedented challenges in globalization, social inequality, geopolitical risk and climate change. I believe that technology is a powerful enabler (but NOT a silver bullet) and in fact the opportunities ahead are mind boggling. The brave, savvy, naive and dedicated are rethinking society, catalyzing our tranisition to fossil free and creating value. Don’t be confused by the show, the buzzwords galore and the formulaic mirage… quick sand.

My immediate focus is Commercial.

My longterm vision is Sustainability, Fairness & Peace.

My confession is that it’s all an excuse to eat aubergine.
