Bjørn-Tore Hagberg, SmartDok AS

Join Bjørn-Tore Hagberg as he talks about technology, software development and how to build a successful company in the new episode of Næringsveien.

He started his journey as an employee of Alta Municipality, before joining a bachelor's degree in information technology at the University of Finnmark (now UiT). Furthermore, he wrote his master's thesis in GPS tracking on mobile, which became the basis for the SmartDok app we know today.

When he finished college, he started the software company Ascella which developed the apps EasyCoach, TimeOverview and SmartDok. After 10 years, they changed their name to SmartDok, because SmartDok was becoming more famous among the population than Ascella, and 90% of the revenue came from SmartDok.
