About the speaker

Marie Lauvås Jacobsen: The Principles of Persuasion

Marie is the CEO and Co-founder of Capeesh – an industry-tailored language learning app based on machine intelligence. She believes that making things happen is based upon a strong team culture and the ability of people to work together.

This mindset is what helped form Capeesh, which was originally two startups that joined forces in order to build something bigger and better together.

She is youngest employee in her company, which she co-founded with her male-only team of language researchers, game designers, and technical engineers in 2017. In 2018 she was awarded the annual business talent prize in her region, Trondheim, for her talent of business leadership and spotting big-picture themes and opportunities, while still being able to focus on detailed implementation plans.
