We continue our series of interviews with the InnoVentum Team members called "Who are we at InnoVentum?" in which I talk with the professionals that make InnoVentum GREAT, since most of us stay behind the scenes.
Today our focus is on Marcus Ulmefors – one of InnoVentum’s top technical talents. He can provide comprehensive information on any subject within energy technology: from how solar panels work to the construction of a new generation nuclear power plant. Marcus has developed InnoVentum’s own power monitoring app and he is responsible for our entire IT infrastructure. Moreover, Marcus, together with Julien and Lucas, prepares technical proposals for our clients, deals with suppliers and distributors. Marcus is a truly international mind, which matches perfectly InnoVentum’s international team spirit!
Below you will find my interview with Marcus.
Ala Kazlova (AK): Tell us a little bit about yourself – what is your background, family history, education, travels, interests in life – please make a small introduction.
Marcus Ulmefors (MU): I grew up in Sweden with my parents and younger sister. At age 18 I moved abroad to work, study, and travel. After 6 years residing in Paris, Barcelona, London, and Berkeley I returned to Sweden with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering with Energy specialization.
Since returning to Sweden I have worked as Mechanical Engineer and Software Developer while taking courses at University and on online platforms. Outside of work I enjoy spending time in the west coast archipelago of Bohuslän, taking boat trips with friends and family.
Another favourite activity is to travel within Europe and further away to meet with friends I’ve made at different stages in life.
