Malin Pattersen, VP, North American Operations at Vev Design (malincornelia)
Interviewer: Sahr Saffa (@sahrsjunior)
Bio: A fashionista turned tech businesswoman, Malin (@malincornelia) graduated with First Class Honours at Winchester University (UK) studying fashion and business, worked as a PR executive for Scandinavian fashion success Holzweiler. Just recently she moved across the Atlantic Ocean to establish a design enterprise software called Vev Design in the North American Market; all by the age of 22! Malin has had an unconventional path to where she is now, working retail floors to afford contact lenses, to making lunch for 30 + people and 16 hour work days (as an intern you do whatever you have to do), just to be part of the art that is fashion. Her well-connected network offered her the opportunity to scale the Norwegian Startup, Vev, abroad. Malin is a firm believer in young leaders, and thinks the best way to describe her (and her career) is ‘a jack of all trades’.
