Tor Talks

Tor Rolfsen Grønsund is a research fellow with Iserv Computing and the Digitalization and entrepreneurship section at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo, where he also serves as an adjunct assistant professor of entrepreneurship.

Previously, Tor has a decade of experience from new digital ventures, strategy consulting, and developing and delivering entrepreneurial training programmes for universities, corporations, and communities. His work on entrepreneurial methods has been adopted by Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Harvard Business School, governments, corporations, accelerators, startups, among others.

Since his first two ventures, one crowdsourcing wireless networks and the other an open source OS repurposing mobile computers for millions of people, Tor has kept the entrepreneurial ethos and put co-creation at the center of his studio, Lingo Labs.

In workshops for executives and entrepreneurs he draws on a strategic design framework that takes a modular, "Lego-like" approach—including design thinking, lean startup, value proposition design, business model canvas, effectuation, jobs-to-be-done, disruptive innovation, and blue ocean strategy—to facilitate innovation capabilities.

Occasionally he gives public talks, blog on torgronsund.com, and think aloud on Twitter @tor, leading to several nominations as one of the influential voices in the tech and startup space.

  1. Hello,

    Happy new year!

    I’m starting a new, premium wordpress theme site. We have several award-winning designers on our team that have been building themes for the past several months. Some of our designs have been featured by MOJO Themes as well. We’re looking to launch in Feb 2012 with a very generous affiliate program – 40% of sales, or a fixed amount upfront. Would you be interested in promoting our themes?


    • Hi Zee,

      Congratulations with your new WP business. If you could point me to a website, I’d have a look at your themes. Actually, I’m involved with a couple of WordPress ventures and would be happy to see if there’s a match.
