Daniel is an award-winning serial entrepreneur with close to 20 years of entrepreneurial experience in the field of IT, media, marketing and mobile. He founded one of Norway's first domain and web hosting companies at the age of 17.
After three years of studying both the proprietary Norwegian and later the international payment networks, Daniel designed a brand new payment infrastructure and built a mobile payment platform on top of it. The result was mCASH, later known as the industry-leading, cloud-based, white-label mobile payments platform Auka.
Auka was first to develop mobile payment technology in the Nordics, first to launch mobile payments in Norway and the world’s first regulated financial services company to run 100% on public cloud. Auka is a Google Technology Partner and Daniel is on the Google Cloud Customer Advisory Board.
At the end of 2016, Auka was awarded fastest growing fintech in the EMEA region by Deloitte. In 2017, Auka was recognised by CFI magazine as European mobile payments platform of the year.
