Olav Eggum, a Norwegian serial entrepreneur, was attending an exclusive keynote by David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s campaign manager in the successful presidential campaign in 2008. Olav was about to sell the rest of his shares in his second highly successful venture, and he was ready to take some well earned time off and enjoy life.

He was fascinated by the business side of Facebook, a side he’d never considered. -All the possibilities for brands on Facebook!

Now, let’s focus on the future!
