We at Humans of SDU are jumping into the new year with a business-starter Mads who had his first entrepreneurial ideas already at the age of eight. We hope this episode of Humans of SDU will bring you a proper dose of inspiration.

  • How many projects has this 24-year-old student already started?
  • What is it like starting a business in these trying corona times?
  • How much time does he have left for relaxation and friends?

How did we find Mads?

Our debut interviewer in this episode Franka and Mads are actually in the same class – studying Product Development and Innovation. Considering what they study, Franka was not surprised at all when she saw that Mads started his own business! She thought it would be pretty useful to give our listeners some inspiration by introducing someone who stayed motivated throughout lockdown since it was a challenging period for everyone. For a daily dose of entrepreneurship, definitely give this episode of Humans of SDU a listen!

Portrait of Mads

“When I was eight, I took my bike and drove up to the nearest dealer of potatoes who said that I could buy them, clean them up, and then sell them to him again. That way, I could earn 1 kr per kilo for clean potatoes and he could sell them for 3 kr more per kilo.”


Even though we had to do the interview with Mads online, it felt like he was right there. That is very much due to Mads being a great listener and talker. On top of that, he’s got a really good knack for innovation. So, if you are in need of some tips and tricks of the trade, listen carefully to Mads!
