CEO & Co-Founder, Fyndiq
Dinesh Nayar, age 37, born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. Trained contemporary dancer at the Royal Swedish ballet school and soloist at the world famous Cullberg ballet. My training and work as a dancer together with my upbringing in an entrepreneurial family, with parents from Malaysia and Finland, has shaped me in my role as entrepreneur and CEO.
My time and focus as CEO at Fyndiq is split between working closely with our product development and building and scaling our organisation through our culture and agile ways of working.
Founded in 2010, Fyndiq, the leading Swedish B2C marketplace, has attracted over 1.5 million customers to its bargain superstore and established a +70% brand recognition. The company is backed by top tier Nordic investors like Northzone, Industrifonden, Karl-Johan Persson (HM) and Bonnier.
I do my best thinking in the shower in the morning and I re-charge my batteries by long-distance running in the forest. Right now, my challenge lies in getting the time and balance in place between my work and having a 1,5-year-old son at home.
My guiding sentence is: “I believe everything is possible. The only things stopping you is not daring to go for it..”
What drives me is: proving people wrong.
