We are A group of dedicated indivduals. We love to learn, explore and sail the ocean.
Johan is a creative technology entrepreneur based in Oslo, Norway. Known as a visionary and an agitator, he connects ideas and people to act as a catalyst for innovation. He initiated EntrepreneurShipOne as a project to enable people to protect our oceans - by falling in love through the experience of sailing, a social activity with zero emissions, working with the elements.
Christine is the Co-founder of Blueye Robotics. A global rising star that lives on her sailboat in the Oslo fjord. She is an engineer, ocean advocate, competitive sailor, explorer and forever curious on life and people.

Marcus Devold Soknes
Marcus is an explorer and adventurer, both at sea and around the entrepreneurial scene in Norway. Founder of Norways largest boat licence academy and boat brands has made him steady at the helm.

Kate is the strategic designer onboard EntrepreneurShipOne, responsible for our profile. It’s safe to say that Kate doesn’t like to sit still. She is driven by curiosity and ambition. Guided by the ocean and creative inclinations, everything she does is with purpose and vision. Taking control of the winds and blowing where they take her.
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.
Xvoyage is a unique opportunity to be at sea with a like-minded, yet diverse group of entrepreneurs, investors, community builders, domain experts and other brilliant people.
EntrepreneurShipOne (E/One) is a zero-emission sailboat – a refitted 1986 X-Yacht – used to engage people in learning about sustainable solutions. It is also a metaphor for business.
Exploring our oceans is the critical missing piece in Understanding our blue planet, so We have our very own Pioneer II drone by blueye onboard. We've named it Deep search, in homage to "life Aquatic".
OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE THE ENTREPRENeURSHIP PLATFORM AVAILABLE FOR ALL. OUR FIRST SHIP TO JOIN THE FLEET IS GALACTIC VIKING, A 60-FOOT VENDÉE GLOBE RACER. OWNER & CAPTAIN BJØRN LINDGREN SHARES OUR PASSION AND KNOWs, JUST LIKE US, WE STAND STRONGER TOGETHER WHEN WE ARE FACED WITH THE UnKNOWN!

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.

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.
