Kate is the strategic designer onboard EntrepreneurShipOne, responsible for our profile. It’s safe to say that Kate doesn’t like to sit still.

Sondre Sommerfelt
Crew writer

The Intellectual Sailor, not only does he navigate the seas with a conservative, yet liberal attitude to rules, customs and knowledge, he has damn fine pen. A sharp critic of our generation, and known a long the coast for his well developed sarcasm. Sondre is our trusted wordsmith, and his xVoyage guide "A Lost Sailors Guide to Windy Copenhagen" is one not to miss.

The Oslo Fjord Guide

By Johan Brand

Although Oslo is neither the Mediterranean nor the South Pacific, the city can satisfy many of these requirements, whether it’s downhill skiing or waterskiing.

 

Explore.

By Johan Brand

We want people to get a different perspective when at sea with #EntrepreneurShipOne. Either high above sea level or far below. We belive if people meet at sea, explore it from all angles, new ideas will emerge.

Sail.

By Johan Brand

We believe sailing is a perfect activity for meeting new people. That's why during my keynote at SLUSH 2016 I invited the startup community onboard #EntrepreneurShipOne.

Learn.

By Johan Brand

#EntrepreneurShipOne has a group of dedicated Co-Captains, we love to learn, explore and of course to sail.
