My name is Hawk Guðjónsson and I’m an serial entrepreneur, mentor, speaker, investor and business coach from an adventurous island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean called Iceland.
The name of my brand “Viking Entrepreneur” reflects the two main influences in my life. Firstly the fact that I am from Iceland, the country of fire and ice, birthplace of the vikings and just an overall fun place to be. Secondly, my passion in life is creating value, also known as being an entrepreneur. I find it extremely satisfying to see my ideas become a reality and actually make a difference to someone’s life.
I personally invest in real estate, startups and stocks. When it comes to investing in startups I don't really have an investment philosophy, I just invest in startups I like or believe in.
In the past years I have realised how important it is to have some adventures and truly experience life instead of just hiding behind a computer. Therefore I try to go out of my comfort zone regularly to experience something adventurous and fun. This has created a lot of amazing memories as well as me becoming an member of the Icelandic search and rescue team where I have had to go very far out of my comfort zone.
