Charlotta Tönsgård is known as the successful CEO of e-health company Min Doktor. She is now on her way to help build an even better startup community in southern Sweden by joining the Board of Malmö Startups.

Founded in 2014, Malmö Startups is a grassroots organization that aims to unite and enrich the startup community in southern Sweden. By hosting events and bringing aspiring entrepreneurs together, Malmö Startups helps the community to grow towards it’s full potential.

Their biggest event Startup Live! brings together over 400 community members and takes place once every year.

A part from Charlotta Tönsgård, the Board will welcome two more members: Sarah Wittbom, CEO at Nordic E-commerce Knowledge and Karsten Deppert, entrepreneur and owner of Contentor, Mindpark and E-commerce Park (and also founder of this site). All of them are ambitious and recognized talents within the startup community in southern Sweden and will certainly contribute greatly to the operations of Malmö Startups.

Charlotta has received extra attention since Malmö-based Min Doktor became the first investment by EQT Ventures in Sweden. DI Digital reports that the financing round successfully raised 55 million SEK (5,8 million €), with EQT being the single largest investor. Min Doktor is speeding up the digitization of Swedish health care by providing doctor consultations and other health care services online.

We congratulate Malmö Startups with their impressive recruitment and are looking forward to seeing what they will plan for the future!
