Donnie Sc Lygonis
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COACH
I have always loved working with ideas, large and small, and at KTH Innovation I really get to work hands-on with ideas and concepts. From the early conception, when they are but a thought or an intuitive feeling of some different way of doing things, to the first transaction, when we have verified, proven and got the first customer in for the idea/patent/service/product/ or got a startup off the ground.
I have two titles; Business Development Coach and Innovation Strategist.
As a business development coach at KTH Innovation I work mainly with ICT and FoodTech projects since that is my own main startup background, but I'm always open for new ideas.
As Innovation Strategist I get to travel a lot and represent KTH and Sweden in the world, as well as meeting a lot of foreign delegations here at KTH.
2015-16 I spent a year in Silicon Valley as a part of a Vinnova / Wallenberg Fellowship program during which I helped start the Swedish part of the Nordic Innovation House in Palo Alto,
