CEO & Founder of Miss Group

I am the founder and CEO of Miss Group a fast growing hosting company, Miss Group has in only 4 years got over 70 000 customers and offices in Manchester, Sofia, Stockholm and Miami.

We have recently got an £6.4m investment from BGF. BGF is the UK and Ireland’s most active investor in growing businesses .

I founded my first company when I was 15 years old selling security for cars, then when I turned 20 I sold it and the company had then grown to around 50 people.

In 1998 I founded my first Internet Company that was an analytic gambling company and I sold it one year later.

After working for channel 5 (Kanal 5), one of the biggest TV channels in Sweden, for a short while I then started Eastpoint. The business idea was simple, create cheap homepages for SMBs and then sell them webhosting at the same time.

In 2001 Eastpoint had around 5000 customers and we had grown to 12 people and I decided to focus more on the hosting part.

So with cash generated from the company I started to buy web hosting companies and in 2005 Eastpoint had acquired 11 web hosting companies and Crystone was now founded in the group. It had become one of the biggest domain and shared hosting companies in Scandinavia.

In 2006 I listed Eastpoint and today the name of the group is the Online Group Publ and they are now one of the market leaders in Scandinavia on Shared Webhosting.

Over the years i have started, invested in and acquired over 30 companies as example Igame Group that we sold to Unibet 2015 for 100 million dollar.

In the end of 2013 I left Online Group after 15 years and now i am working on my new company Miss Group Ltd.
