Her first education was in business economy and she started up her first company at the age of 19. For 10 years she worked on several differend positions in the field of banking, before she was trained in entrepreneurship and innovation leadership at Mälardalen University. It was during this time she really found out what she was passionate about in life and she startet do create an innovation process model for early stage ideas together with another student.
Her true passion is to support and inspire people to grow with their ideas. 2005-2008 Annika got the chance to work as a manager of an incubator Idélab at Mälardalens University. Shortly after her time at the incubator Annika co-founded the organization Sisters in business, that in 2011 also became a womens entrepreneurship center in Eskilstuna.
