SWEDISH SUMMARY: Igår och idag samlas en lång rad unga entreprenörer på Stockholmsmässan. Bland UF-bolagen som ställer ut finns YMAR (Youth Marketing and Research), som jag har följt sen de startade upp bolaget i höstas som en del av sitt gymnasieprogram på Rudbeckskolan i Sollentuna. Läs mer om YMAR i följande blogginlägg (24 oktober 2013 och 7 november 2013) samt via denna länk. Jag besökte YMAR:s monter på mässan igår och blev mäkta imponerad – enormt professionellt!
Yesterday and today the Stockholm Fair in Älvsjö is full of young entrepreneurs. Among them you’ll find YMAR (Youth Marketing and Research). I have followed YMAR ever since they started their company in October as a part of their high school program at Rudbeck in Sollentuna. You can read more about YMAR in some previous blog posts (e.g. Oct 24 2013, and Nov 7 2013) and in this article (however in Swedish).
I have to say that I was very impressed (and actually even proud) when I visited YMAR’s booth at the Stockholm Fair yesterday. Extremely professional! Carl Bergkvist (Managing Director), Mimmi Andersson (Administration), Hugo Bergström (Finance), Carl-Henrik Dalvik (Procurement), and Emil Widlund (Marketing and Sales) have done really good. They have already met their objectives on number of customers, although they have 2 months to go before school ends (and the company must be closed down…), and made a good financial result so far. Even more important however is that they have worked hard and learned a lot about building and running a company. Once again: I am really impressed! And I cross my fingers and really hope that they win an award at the ”Youth Entrepreneur Gala” tomorrow. I think they have deserved that!
