Andreas Gilstad
Product Manager for Grouper and spare time entrepreneur

Andreas is Product Manager for Grouper, a startup project in Telenor Digital. Grouper is a service that helps group organizers communicate more efficiently with the group being organized. In his spare time he is working with a picture sharing services for kindergartens. Andreas studied industrial engineering at NTNU in Trondheim and has been working with digital service development for the last two years in Telenor. He believes that there is a large potential for making new services in industries that are not yet hit by the “Internet way of thinking". His experience is that the people that understand the problems in these industries often lack the capabilities and knowledge to develop new and disruptive solutions, and he believes the startup community can make a large difference here.
