Three Serendipity CEO:s among this year’s super talents

Today, Swedish business magazine Veckans Affärer released its list of Sweden's leading super talents in 2013. Serendipity, which throughout the years has appointed young entrepreneurs to key positions in its portfolio of companies, secured three out of 101 spots on the list.

The list of Sweden's super talents is made up of exceptional people under 40 who have been selected using the following criteria: knowledge, achievement, drive, trend, personal brand and future potential. Three people from the Serendipity group are on the list. These are Amin Omrani (30 years old), Fredrik Svedberg (32) and Kamjar Hajabdolahi (30).

- All three are very ambitious and driven coworkers who are not afraid of challenges and who work hard to achieve set goals. It is, naturally, fun and inspiring that they are being recognized for their achievements, says Ashkan Pouya, Chairman of Serendipity Innovations.

Ashkan Pouya is one of many from the Serendipity group who have previously received the super talent title. Saeid Esmaeilzadeh, CEO of Serendipity Innovations; Nina Bake, CEO of Episurf Medical; and Erik Björkegren, CEO of IRRAS, have also been on the list.

- It is important for us to work with talented people. When we recruit, we put great emphasis on finding people who are motivated by challenges and who dare to explore new ground. This has contributed to a creative environment with a natural diversity. Today, we have a wide span of nationalities at our headquarters, everything from South Africa and China to Colombia and Russia, says Saeid Esmaeilzadeh, CEO of Serendipity Innovations.
