CEO Lars Thinggaard will tell the story of how he led Milestone through the transition from an owner-led startup to becoming a professionally managed international software company. It’s a very personal story for Lars, he starts when Milestone was a small tech-startup with a good idea and looks at three major dilemmas that he faced as the CEO in a fast-growing company:

  • Creating a strong foundation of trust in the management team
  • Changing behavior to become leader
  • Engaging an external investor.
