Here’s a selection of startups, brands, companies founded by Johan Ronnestam from Stockholm, Sweden and Scandinavia.
I founded my first company in 2001. Foreign, was the name of the digital brand and advertising studio I created. With clients like adidas Global, IKEA, H&M, Absolut Vodka, Procter & Gamble and more, Foreign became one of Swedens fastest growing companies in three years. Running your own business was something I loved. As time have passed I’ve spent more time thinking about how to do things I love. Money is secondary. Below you can find some of the brands I’m currently spending time on.
UDO Electrical Bikes creates clean commuting alternatives extending the range of the human muscles.
Mountain Works creates Scandinavian fashion that inspires and empowers people to explore outdoor and urban frontiers.
Swedish mobile app brand that aims to help kids all over the world to realise their creative learning potential.

FOREIGN was a global digital brand and advertising agency with +40 employees. Gasell in three years.
